KEY FEATURES SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED FOR EASY USE WITHOUT ASSISTANCE
Icare rebound tonometer was developed to find a new, easy and patient-friendly method of measuring intraocular pressure. It is a major breakthrough obtained after a decade of development work by a Finnish MD, Mr. Antti Kontiola. The realization of the rebound method has involved a number of clinical test partners, including the Helsinki University Eye Clinic (Finland) in the human application, and the Mount Sinai Medical School (US) in the animal application.
UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY ENABLES SAFE, PAINLESS AND HYGIENIC IOP MEASUREMENT
The rebound technology is based on the rebound measuring principle, in which a very light-weight probe is used to make a momentary contact with the cornea. In the rebound technology, motion parameters of the probe are recorded during the measurement. An induction based coil system is used for measuring the motion parameters. An advanced algorithm combined with the state of the art software analyzes deceleration and the contact time of the probe while it touches the cornea. Deceleration and the contact time of the probe change as a function of IOP. In simple terms, the higher the IOP, the faster the probe decelerates and the shorter the contact time.
ICARE HOME TONOMETER FOR 24H IOP SELF-MONITORING
The easy-to-use Icare tonometers revolutionize IOP home-monitoring making it quick, effortless and effective. Icare HOME tonometer is designed for home use for Glaucoma Patients who need regular IOP monitoring by their ophthalmologists’ recommendation.
The device is based on a rebound measuring principle that requires no drops or air; neither specialized skills for its use.
IOP SELF-MONITORING ANYWHERE, ANYTIME
Improved cost and clinic efficiency
Better care and patient comfort
More reliable data
SAFE, PAINLESS AND HYGIENIC PROCEDURE
No anesthetic or disinfection is needed with the Icare tonometers. Icare HOME tonometer is designed for self-measurement of IOP (self-tonometry) of Glaucoma Patients who need to monitor their IOP by their ophthalmologists’ recommendation. Icare HOME does not display the IOP measurement. The readings can be retrieved via Icare LINK software only by a health care professional. See system requirements.
