World’s Most Compact Neurosurgical Microscope with Horizontal Optics

Leica Microsystems has made a significant appearance in the history of optics design by the introduction of horizontal optics technology. The optics carrier is so compact that the surgeon naturally adopts a healthy working posture, this allows hours of fatigue-free work. The Leica M720 OH5 supports the surgeon as he works; he can see more and see better, work even more safely and generally benefit from the perfect ergonomics. Neurosurgeons will love this gadget.
Individually adjustable components for optimal cooperation : No two people are the same. Thanks to individually adjustable components, the Leica M720 surgical microscope provides optimal ergonomic conditions for concentrated and precise work and an excellent view. The two binocular tubes have a swivel range of 115° and feature the innovative butterfly techniq ue, which enables the eyepieces to be swung to a second viewing plane with a simple hand movement. If desired, the tube can be locked in one of five defined positions simply by pressing the ErgoLock™ button. This improves the ergonomics and the stability, which is a particular advantage when using a mouth switch. The microscope can therefore be matched optimally to both the surgeon and his assistant, irrespective of body height, position of the operating area or the microscope.

Fast, confident and precise focusing :Thanks to the SpeedSpot feature, a simple hand movement focuses the microscope - there is no need to follow the movement through the eyepiece. If the two laser spots overlay, the surgeon can be sure of a razor-sharp image. As a focusing reference, SpeedSpot guarantees a brilliant image at all ports

Innovative optics combined with superb illumination : The Leica M720 OH5 surgical microscope ideally combines original Leica APO OptiChrome Optics and a 300 Watt xenon illumination system to give the surgeon a steady clear and sharply focused image for the entire duration of the operation.

As working distance decreases, the maximum possible light intensity value is reduced: The working distance-controlled BrightCare feature ensures that the light intensity does not surpass safety levels. The magnification-controlled illumination diameter AutoIris automatically matches the illuminated area to the field of view. This prevents heating of tissue outside the surgeon’s field of observation.

Mobile and modular - today and tomorrow : The patented mobility concept of the Leica OH5 stand is based on the proven OH4 system. Thanks to its magnificent reach, it offers the surgeon and the whole operating team a level of maneuverability unattained by competitor products. The system is remarkable for its precise and harmonious balance of maneuverability and extremely easy movement.
