All the ri-scope® L- series’ E.N.T. (ear, nose and throat) diagnostic instruments feature Riester’s new LED lighting technology that provides a whiter light, improving examinations because of its enhanced image clarity and colour contrast. The area under examination is shown in true-colour – the improved red-colour contrast aiding a reliable and exact diagnosis. Lamps with LED technology have a lifetime of at least 10,000 hours, compared to just 20-30 hours for halogen and xenon lamps.
The ri-scope® L range combines energy efficient LED technology with a long lasting, light-weight lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery to ensure sustained, high-power performance and significant cost savings. Li-Ion batteries have the benefit of achieving a considerably higher charging capacity and longer lifetime than regular batteries and provide sustained high performance for up to 1200 charging cycles.
Riester also recently launched its heotronic® technology for instrument handles. This new patent pending technology makes it possible to power both LEDs and conventional bulbs electronically. This means that all ri-scope® L instrument heads only need one handle, no matter which kind of illumination is selected. 100% light output is guaranteed immediately after a slight turn of the electronic switch and it is possible to regulate light intensity very smoothly in both directions. An automatic turn-off function after 120 seconds guarantees that LEDs, bulbs and the Li-Ion rechargeable batteries are conserved and can be used as long as possible.
With this universally unique combination of LEDs, Li-Ion rechargeable batteries and rheotronic® technology, Riester now offers the most reliable diagnostic instruments with the longest lifetime on the market. All ri-scope® L instrument heads can be used with C- or AA-handles, making them portable, or with the Riester diagnostic wall mounted station, the ri-former®.
