ARRISCOPE is the world's first high-definition surgical microscope, with unrivaled depth of field and unsurpassed image quality for stereoscopic viewing. For the first time, the ARRISCOPE enables patients, students and staff to see precisely the same view as the surgeon.
3D visualisation of the surgical field-of-view, through secondary viewing systems in the operating room, provides an immersive experience for the surgeon and other observers, and allows surgeries to be documented in high-end 3D cinema quality.
As a worldwide leader in motion picture technology, with more than 97 years of innovative product development experience, ARRI is uniquely qualified to play a leading role in digital image acquisition.
Used for many Oscar®-winning movies, the ARRI ALEXA digital camera system is the core engine of the ARRISCOPE, delivering high-contrast, sharp and brilliant high-definition images. With its unsurpassed depth of field, contrast ratio and colour reproduction, the quality of viewing for surgeons, assistants and staff increases tremendously. Thanks to the ability to select special colour representations, there is high potential to improve detail recognition.
A novel LED illumination system delivers very bright and extremely uniform illumination, optimised for representation on a video monitor. Special white LEDs produce crisp, true colours. With the precisely tailored, rectangular illumination pattern created by the two overlapping beams, unsurpassed depth of field can be attained. The cold light, without any UV and IR components, protects the patient by avoiding heat impairment. Noise-free, passive cooling and the compact size without bulky fibre optics cables eliminate any inconvenience for the surgeon. Two independent subsystems add redundancy, so that in the unlikely event of an individual LED failure, there will still be sufficient light.
The HD binoculars with state-of-the-art Full HD OLED technology let the surgeon move up to 4 cm away from the eyepiece, so the microscopic and operative fields can both be viewed simultaneously.
The high-quality 3D screening monitor also enables surgeons to operate in an upright position. This relieves neck and back strain, prevents fatigue, and thus allows surgeons to focus their full attention on the operation and the patient.
The ARRISCOPE 6-axis stand moves easily and stabilises immediately after positioning, vibration-cushioned and with an optimised transient response. The state-of-the-art pneumatic-driven mechanism is perfectly balanced, thus enabling smooth, precise movements for enhanced surgeon comfort and patient care.
ARRISCOPE offers real 3D in multiple streams for all applications, providing exactly the same image quality for operating rooms, educational needs or screening at conferences. 3D technical advances are helping surgeons to capture, store and display real-time surgery – and then to stream it back to audiences for training purposes or at medical meetings.
Ergonomic hand grips enable the surgeon to adjust the microscope’s key functions, such as zoom and focus, which are regulated by two separate speed-controlled rocker switches.
An intuitive, easy-to-use graphical user interface gives the surgical staff access to all functions and settings on a touchscreen.
ARRISCOPE is currently in prototype stage.
