EXAMS / DISPENSING

Coburn Technologies Intros Huvitz Auto Refractor/Keratometer


Product: Coburn Huvitz Auto Refractor/Keratometer, HRK-1
Top Line: Coburn Technologies is introducing the HRK-1, a new autorefractor/keratometer, manufactured by Huvitz, Co. Ltd.
Close Up: The HRK-1 comes to the market at an affordable price and is built with a high degree of data accuracy, especially in higher diopter and cylinder measurement. Utilizing dynamic optical technology to measure the aberration of the eye, this machine is the eighth generation auto refractor/keratometer developed by Huvitz, which continues to innovate in this product segment.
Vital Stats: To provide more options for ECPs to choose from, Coburn has adapted the method of refraction with HRK-1 to a ring signal type, as opposed to the well-known multi-focal Wavefront technology. With the ring signal method of refraction, a rotating ring sensor gives the user an almost infinite number of measuring points, producing the best average of spherical, cylinder and axis values.
Unlike other entry models in the market, the HRK-1 comes with a y-axis auto tracking function, which automatically determines the height of the patient’s eyes, thus reducing the measurement time.

Safilo has developed Smith Lowdown Focus in partnership with Interaxon Inc., a leader in consumer brain sensing technology and makers of Muse, the world’s bestselling EEG system. Scientific research partnerships involving SafiloX have been established, and involve leading neuroscience researchers and institutes including a program led by Michela Balconi, Professor of Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience, head of research unit in affective and social neuroscience, at the Cattolica University of Milan, focusing on students, top managers and athletes.
“We’re excited to be collaborating with Safilo to bring this product to the market and reach a broader audience with our brain-sensing technology,” said Derek Luke, CEO, Interaxon. “Currently Interaxon offers the largest EEG platform in the world and we are excited to see this creative application of our technology through Smith Lowdown Focus by Safilo.”
