Norwood Intros Head and Chin Rest for Larger Patients


Product: Adapt-HCR
Top Line: According to the 2015 National Health Interview Survey conducted by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), approximately 30.4 percent of American adults aged 20 and older are obese. This data marks the continuation of an ongoing trend and confirms that more than 97 million adult Americans are grossly overweight.
In response to this trend, Norwood Device & Diagnostics is introducing a proprietary head and chin rest for slit lamps that is designed to better accommodate large patients during routine eye exams.
“Time and time again I would hear from my clients that they were struggling to perform accurate slit lamp examinations due to the increasing size of their patient population. The current head and chin rest model has become obsolete. At times it was embarrassing for doctors and patients and it was a challenge to keep patients comfortable during an exam,” said company president Rick Norwood.
Close Up:
• Improved patient stabilization, resulting in more accurate examinations
• Designed to fit large body sizes, as well as smaller patients, making examinations more comfortable and less embarrassing
• Affordable, keeping ECP budgets in mind and allowing them to remain competitive
• Adaptable to all slit lamps for universal installation
Vital Stats: Norwood sources products from top OEM manufacturers of ophthalmic diagnostic equipment and optical accessories in Canada, Europe, Japan and Korea.
