HDL Ergo and Dragonfly™: How Orascoptic™ does deflection

More than 64 percent of dental professionals suffer from general musculoskeletal pain. The new HDL Ergo loupes from Orascoptic fight work-related neck discomfort, improve your posture and prolong your career.

Ergo loupes, also referred to as deflection loupes, employ an innovative optical prism element that deflects light at a steep angle. This allows the clinician to look straight ahead, keeping their chin up and neck straight, while viewing the operating site below.

The use of prismatic loupes may significantly reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), including neck and shoulder pain and decrease perceived muscular exertion during the performance of dental work.

Designed for performance, the HDL Ergo optics deliver a crisp image with edge-to-edge clarity that enables precise movements. Each loupe is custom crafted to your desired working distance and features a field size of almost 90mm.

The telescopes can be mounted on six different frame models, including the new Dragonfly powered loupe that features a built-in headlight.

Dragonfly powered loupes

Dragonfly by Orascoptic is a loupe with fully integrated battery power and circuitry to operate a built-in headlight.

A true triumph of optical engineering, Dragonfly seamlessly combines Orascoptic’s industry-leading optics and award-winning headlight into a single, lightweight product.

All electronics and batteries are completely contained within the custom-built frame, so there are no visible wires or cables. An innovative counter-balance design provides all-day comfort by minimising pressure on the wearer’s nose bridge. Dragonfly offers...

  • Untethered freedom of movement.
  • Magnification and illumination working in harmony.
  • Balanced ergonomic comfort. Reduce the weight on your nose by as much as 30% compared to traditional loupes.

With HDL Ergo and Dragonfly, you get the best of both worlds - enhanced ergonomics together with outstanding illumination, all with the exceptional quality you know and love from Orascoptic.
