Source: Rowiak

Rowiak presents a mobile OCT device in handy pocket-size for the first time at the MEDICA conference that runs November 13-16 in Düsseldorf, Germany. The Pencil OCT consists of two parts: a docking station that fits on every desk and a handheld device which the doctor uses for the patient's examination. The handheld device is about the size of a digital thermometer and communicates wirelessly with the dock.

Another advantage of the device is the acquisition costs will be significantly lower than those of conventional table-top devices, according to a company news release.

The device is currently in the prototype phase and is expected to be launched in 2020.
Rowiak will be exhibiting at the MEDICA at the joint booth Forum Medtech Pharma e. V. Booth E93 in Hall 3 and will present a design sample of the device and its functionality. In addition, Rowiak offers the opportunity to keep up to date with further developments of the Pencil OCT with only a short registration.
