REBOUND TECHNOLOGY

Unique technology enables safe, painless and hygienic IOP measurement

The rebound technology is based on the rebound measuring principle, in which a very light-weight probe is used to make a momentary contact with the cornea. In the rebound technology, motion parameters of the probe are recorded during the measurement. An induction based coil system is used for measuring the motion parameters. An advanced algorithm combined with the state of the art software analyzes deceleration and the contact time of the probe while it touches the cornea. Deceleration and the contact time of the probe change as a function of IOP. In simple terms, the higher the IOP, the faster the probe decelerates and the shorter the contact time.

The Icare® rebound tonometers do not require any maintenance calibration or regular service. The Icare® tonometers do not have any parts that wear out. The probe base is the only part, which may require changing or cleaning by the user. The probe base change and cleaning is very simple and is described in the user manual.

Anaesthesia is not needed since the touch of the probe is so gentle and the measurement is barely noticed by the patient.

A SAFE EYE PRESSURE CHECK

STAY PROTECTED - CHOOSE AN ICARE TONOMETER

Icare’s patented rebound technology is a proven technique for obtaining accurate and rapid IOP measurements from all your patients. With an Icare tonometer a single-use probe is used to measure the eye pressure.

USING AN ICARE TONOMETER IS A SAFE CHOICE FOR YOU AND YOUR PATIENTS

Measuring with an Icare tonometer is free from air puff, anesthesia, drops or other preparation. The Icare tonometers enable hygienic and effortless eye pressure measurement that is barely noticed by the patient, making it suitable for all patients from the very young, to the older generation, even for post-surgical applications.

The Icare tonometers are safe because of the use of a single-use probe.

The Icare tonometers do not create microaerosol formations while a risk of crosscontamination may be present during microaerosol generating procedures like air puff tonometry [1-2].
