The most recognizable solution on all Hausted Eye Units is the patented articulating headpiece with the low-profile design — it offers unparalleled site access for the surgeon as well as comfort for the patient. The dual operating knobs allow infinite adjustability and precise microscopic movement of the head section. The low-profile design allows site access for both superior (over brow) and lateral (side approach) procedures.

The ability to employ a single piece of equipment to perform each stage of patient treatment eliminates unnecessary patient transfers, non-standardized equipment, and greatly enhances process standardization.

  • Inpatient
  • Ambulatory / Outpatient
  • Oral and Maxiofacial
  • ENT
  • Ophthalmology
  • Plastics

The three-spindle base and four 3-inch dual Tente® casters allow greater mobility and stability with the fourth caster at the back end of the base to aid in tipping prevention.
