Windsor Magnifier – the one-piece hand magnifier suitable for medical environments
The handheld Windsor Magnifier is made from a single piece of molded plastic. This one-piece construction is easy to clean because there are no component parts into which microscopic bacteria may gather. Being made from all-clear plastic even to the naked eye it is easy to see and remove any dust or dirt particles. This makes it an ideal magnifier for use in sterile environments, such as hospital Sterilisation or Disinfection units, which have to receive, de-contaminate and process thousands of used medical devices every day, as well as creating numerous sundry packs for hospital wards, theatres and clinics.
As instruments and devices come back in to the units for processing they all have to be tracked and then tagged before they can be issued safely again. Imagine what a strain on the eyes it must be to read and register those tags – and that’s where a magnifying glass becomes very useful. With three different lens sizes – 48mm, 70mm and 98mm - and different magnification strengths the COIL Windsor offers different options to help medical staff check numbers and records.
Many hospitals in the UK cover such magnification tasks by taking two, or even all three of the different Windsor sizes. The strongest, most powerful one is the little 48mm-diameter version, which magnifies up to 4.4 times original size. The 70mm one magnifies 2.6x, while the larger 98mm version makes everything look just over twice as big (2.3x). Go for the smallest one for the most powerful magnification, or choose the biggest if you need a comfortable view over a larger area.
As well as being easy to clean all the Windsors are made from tough, shatterproof plastic so they are likely to survive the occasional drop on a hard hospital floor. A small hole drilled into the handle enables the Windsor to be hung on a hook or even threaded with a cord of some kind so that they can always be kept around a hospital staff member’s body.
