FALKO is the innovative Head-Mounted Display - studied and designed by Tecnomed Italia for medical practice, installed on a dentist’s helmet with flip-up system. Working in healthy conditions is an absolute right; studies show that musculoskeletal problems are very common in the medical profession, especially in dentistry.
FALKO starts with this goal: to effectively eliminate the postural problems encountered in medical practice. It was initially designed to be connected to the EsaCam surgical lighthead for obtaining high-definition images with high contrasts and up to 30X zoom. By talking to medical specialists from different branches of medicine, the designers understood their need; that is why the designers decided to extend the applications of FALKO to other medical equipment.
Its aim is to enhance, not to replace, the equipment with which FALKO connects. With FALKO, a new flexible ecosystem is defined. With FALKO the designers raise the bar in terms of precision, quality, and safety in medical procedures, safeguarding the well-being and health of the medical professional.
In addition, it is possible to consult the patient file by quickly switching from the camera to the practice management PC and to do Telecooperation in healthcare. The designers are currently working on the interchangeability of FALKO's modules, i.e., those modules that enable wireless control of equipment with which the FALKO device is connected. This is aimed to make FALKO a 100% flexible technology.
