introduces wireless HD surgical camera system
Berchtold has introduced a
wireless version of its Full
HD ChromoVision camera
system. The camera handle
has an integrated transmitting
and receiving unit,
providing reliable and
securely encrypted wireless
transmission of high-definition
The cameras can be integrated
Chromophare E series
The Full HD wireless
camera is installed and set
up using Plug & Play. Image
transfer from the control unit to the monitors is conventional,
using an HD-SDI cable. However, wireless transmission from the
control unit to the monitors is possible.
The wide range of connection options for the control unit
includes two HD-SDI ports, one DVI port and a video port. The
DVI port also makes it possible to connect by HDMI or optical
fibre. HD video streaming can be run in parallel on multiple video
outputs. Berchtold also offers an IR interface with a convenient
remote control. The serial RS 232 interface also makes it possible
to control the camera in an operating room with existing infrastructure.
Compared to conventional systems, the ChromoVision Full HD
offers five times the resolution with an image capture of more than
two million pixels.

plate for complex distal radius fractures
Innovation largely depends on a committed team capable of anticipating
the needs of the market and supporting the healthcare
professionals in an effective way. This is the philosophy behind
Brazilian company Ortosintese which exports its products to more
than 25 countries and is well connected to the market.
Its products are certified with the CE mark, GMP (Good
Manufacturing Practices), IEC and ISO and comply with the
ASME quality standards.
Volfix is their latest product – a titanium F136 plate that is an
ideal solution for complex distal radius fractures. It provides an
angular stability of comminuted intra-articular fractures and of
bones with osteoporosis with less tissue dissection and greater
preservation of its irrigation in the area of the fracture.
There is less contact of the plate with the bone, to minimise
the vascular lesion. The screws offer a stable fixation, resulting
in a low risk of failure during the synthesis.
