The exclusive 'LUX' system ensures the maximum light is transmitted to the end of the PROCTOLUX proctoscope. A light guide directs strong, dependable illumination from an integral light pack to the site of interest. After use the entire product including the light pack can be thrown away without the need for disassembly.
Within PROCTOLUX a patented mechanism (the 'CLEAR VIEW' system) operates to protect the light guide tip during insertion of PROCTOLUX, ensuring that in use all of the available light is delivered from the light guide to the examination site.
Compared with traditional products that employ non-integrated light sources the self-contained PROCTOLUX proctoscope enables procedure times to be reduced, while reducing cross infection risk. PROCTOLUX is priced to be competitive with standard products, enabling all users to benefit from the professional feature set.
All EVEXAR products include integral lighting for examination site illumination. Light is generated in a light pack located ergonomically in the product handle, using a superbright LED powered by alkaline batteries. The light is switched on by pulling on a tab on the light pack. Light from the LED is directed into an optically clear light guide which transmits the light to the end of the product. The light guide angle and termination face is aligned to ensure that maximum illumination is directed to the examination site. Maximum illumination intensity is maintained for a minimum of 30 minutes following activation, gradually reducing thereafter. The entire system is self-contained, requiring no additional light sources, external power supplies, chargers, leads, sleeves etc.
During insertion the PROCTOLUX employs an obturator to both occlude the lumen of the product and enable insertion. This provides a design challenge when using a light guide light source. As well as designing the obturator to ensure smooth transition between the obturator and the product walls and providing a high gloss rounded tip, the obturator design needs to ensure that in use the light guide tip remains free of faecal matter. This is achieved by the patented 'Clear View' system, unique to EVEXAR products. A mechanical cam operates to ensure that during insertion the cam occludes the light guide channel, and on removal lifts to clear the light guide, leaving the tip clean.
For many procedures the cost of the products used fades into insignificance when compared to the overhead and variable costs of a clinical environment. Aside from the fixed costs (facility, utilities, depreciation etc) there are the staff and variable costs to consider. While these may not be obvious at a procedure level any ability to reduce them frees funding both within and outside the department.
All EVEXAR products are self-contained, and always ready for use. There is no preparation or set up, once used the entire product is simply thrown away. All products have a high specification feature set, ensuring that the usability of the products meet the same standards as more complex and capital intensive products. With no set-up or clean-up, no need to fund (and find) chargers and power supplies, no need to sleeve cables, disinfect and store items after use, no need for duplicate capital items EVEXAR products can significantly reduce both turnaround time and time spent other than with the patient.
EVEXAR products can minimise your overall procedure costs without the need to compromise on quality, feature set or usability. Contact us for more details.
After use the entire product can be thrown away; this reduces procedure turnaround times, and more importantly significantly reduces the cross infection risks. Every product use is with a brand new product. All EVEXAR products, including PROCTOLUX can be thrown away after use. There is no need for any disassembly of the product, the entire product is disposable, including the integral light pack. While the light pack in PROCTOLUX contains batteries to power the LED, these batteries are alkaline only, so don't contain any of the heavy metals found in most batteries and can be safely disposed of as contaminated clinical waste.
