Nidek Co. Ltd. today launched its NT-1p non-contact tono/pachymeter.

The NT-1p is a device that fully automates reliable non-contact tonometry and pachymetry. By placing the chin on the chinrest, the NT-1p automatically detects the position of the eyes and begins measurement without pressing any buttons. Voice guidance (available in 9 languages) facilitates smooth measurement for any operator.

According to the company, a newly incorporated air-nozzle contact sensor ensures safety while performing fully-automatic measurements. The nozzle design is optimized for comfort, reducing the patient’s perception of physical pressure.

The company also noted that continuous range of tilt and swivel of the screen allows the NT-1p to be placed anywhere in an examination room; installation against a wall or in a corner is now possible. The conventional face-to-face position is available, and is designed to provide excellent patient comfort. The flexible layout and space-saving design contribute to improved productivity and efficiency.

Moreover, several options allow greater flexibility based on usage. Models are available with or without a joystick. The 4-direction button of the newly-designed joystick allows smooth movement of the measuring unit. The addition of a hand-held control and tablet control software allow for remote operation.

“Design innovations of the NT-1p provide high-performance, efficient measurement while also prioritizing patient comfort in various situations.” Motoki Ozawa, president and CEO of Nidek, said in a news release. “We will continue to deliver differentiated technologies that improve practice workflow for better operator and patient satisfaction.”
