HAI Labs launches the Elevate slit lamp to accommodate all patients

Lexington, MA-HAI Laboratories recently launched the HAI SL-5000e Elevate Slit Lamp, a slit lamp that is re-engineered to meet the challenge of examining patients of all body types.

Simplifying the corneal alphabet soup

Slit lamp exams can be an uncomfortable experience for plus-sized patients, large-chested patients, and patients with limited mobility. In response to requests from eyecare practitioners, HAI Labs developed the Elevate slit lamp, which combines a traditional slit lamp with a joystick and base design. By raising the first point of contact between patient and tabletop to the upper chest, the patient can comfortably reach the chinrest and the slit lamp operator can conduct a thorough examination.

HAI Labs ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Tilt Open to bring the Elevate slit lamp to market. Optometrists who placed their pre-orders online will start receiving the first production batch of Elevate slit lamps in December 2014 and January 2015.
