The seca multifunction and wheelchair scales prove themselves every day in hospitals and doctors’ offices around the world. They offer several solutions to problems with weighing persons who have trouble walking or patients with equilibrium disorders. Now seca has optimized the functionality of these scales by making them wireless and thus part of the product system seca 360° wireless. Thanks to the seca 360° wireless technology, the platform and bariatric scale seca 635/634 and the multifunction and wheelchair scales seca 645/644, seca 685/684, seca 677/676, seca 665/664 and seca 657/656 can now transmit all measurements to a seca wireless printer, to the software seca analytics 115 on the doctor’s PC or directly into an electronic patient file.
For the single user version, the CONAXX 2 iagnostic Viewer will be used in the future, whereas the PROPAXX software is intended for multi-user- PACS applications. No matter if the image acquisition is made with CONAXX 2 or different acquisition software of another manufacturer, PROPAXX receives your CR- or DR (DX) X-ray images through the DICOM interface for further processing, diagnostics and external communication.
The new basis is the PROPAXX Diagnostic Server System. Comprising the conventional PROPAXX server next to the multi-user-functionality PROPAXX NET (including floating licence concept) and three PROPAXX licences (this basis usually covers the demand of a resident doctor).

So far we have shown our TOUCH solution for ROTEC Xray systems at the MEDICA and the ECR as prototype or pre-production sample only. Finally, it is time for the market introduction of the PRS 500-DR F TOUCH, i.e. on basis of a wallstand and table solution. The advantages of our innovative TOUCH-systems are obvious: Thanks to the integrated state-of-the-art touch panel in the control arm in combination with the CONAXX 2 Touch” control and acquisition software, the advantages of digital technology have the greatest effects on the system: Ideal workflow, simple handling and patient selection at the X-ray system itself.
Leica Microsystems and TrueVision® 3D Surgical announced the debut of 3D surgical microscopes at the 81st Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS). By incorporating the digital smart 3D system inside select models of Leica Microsystems’ surgical microscopes, Leica Microsystems and TrueVision® have eliminated the need for a separate 3D cart. Surgeons can control the 3D recording functions, without interrupting their workflow, via the microscope hand and foot controls, and OR staff will benefit from easier, faster setup and more space to maneuver in the operating room. The TrueVision® 3D platform is also upgradable to support future surgical guidance applications.
