Brandon Medical Optica 488
The Optica 488 applies ergonomic perfection to support highly demanding visual tasks. With the latest LED’s innovative arm technology and a visual field designed for optimum performance, the Optica 488 illuminated magnifier combines high efficiency with ergonomic design.
Excellent colour reproduction that corresponds to Ra = 90 provides impressive colour rendition and highlights colour differences. The 3.5 dioptre magnifier doubles the size of even the smallest detail. For rasks requiring extra precision, an 8-dioptre accessory lens provides a total magnification of 11.5 dioptres.
To allow precise visual operation, Optica has a digital dimming function from 10% to 100%. This integrated visualizer function incorporates three separately switchable light segments. This allows different scenarios to be created emphasizing the surface structure and provides excellent depth perception.
Long reach, high maneuverability
The highly flexible head joint enables a wide range of positioning and working options. For maximum operating flexibility, the Optica 488 stylish and slim line arm has a long reach of 1 metre.
Innovative balanced-arm technology allows easy adjustment and precise positioning via six independent swivel joints. The Optica 488 arm has a minimum of 20,000 movement cycles.
Quality Built to Last
Optica 488 is a high quality and low maintenance magnifier luminaire. Optica 488 is 40% more efficient than conventional magnifiers, whilst maintaining high levels of illuminance using an LED light source. The illumination of 6,000 Lux consumes only 14 watts of power.
The long LED life of to up 50,000 + hours saves on maintenance and downtime costs. This makes Optica highly economical to operate and is built to last for over 20 years of normal use.
Cableflow Medical Equipment Rail
The Cableflow Medical Equipment Rail provides a universal mounting system for the temporary mounting and support of any patient care equipment required at many different locations within a healthcare environment.
This Medical rail is manufactured from anodised extruded aluminium and is fitted with a proprietary push-in infill strip to conceal fixings and maintain a screw-free easy to clean surface. This rail system has been designed to comply with, and in many cases exceed the essential design and performance requirements of the European standard: ISO 19054 – Rail systems for supporting medical equipment.
Where called for we integrate our rail onto our product systems in strict compliance with ISO 19054, ISO 11197 & HTM 08-03. However, CABLEFLOW Rail can be purchased separately for use in other wall mounted applications throughout a project in order to maintain consistency between product mounted and wall mounted rail.
Provita Wall Rail
The Provita medical rail is easily fixed to the wall by rotatable pre-drilled fixings. Rails longer than 3.000mm will be connected using connectors, which are pre-assembled at the factory. The type of mounting may vary and would need to be evaluated on site. Synergy Medical will evaluate your needs and advise accordingly.

Potential Equalisation Socket WM Series
The publication of BS 7671 (17th Edition of the Wiring Regulations) Amendment 3 defines that it is now a mandated requirement in accordance with Section 710 to provide supplementary equipotential bonding in a UK healthcare facility at every Group 1 and Group 2 medical location. The same requirement applies globally within HD 60 364-7-710.
In all such medical locations this earthing facility must be provided whether bedhead services are supplied within trunking systems (medical supply units) or by wall mounted outlets.
The POAG-PES-WM solution is a fully compliant off-the-shelf quick fix solution to meeting this requirement and is available in either 1, 2 or 4 gang versions and in each case fitted to a single BS 4662 size accessory plate. A 47mm deep back box is required to ensure ease of fitment and connection.
A polyester powder coated steel facia plate as required by HTM 06-01 in the patient environment is supplied complete with fixings screws to secure into the wall box, a supplementary earth lead and potential equalisation socket (1, 2 or 4 as required by the facia plate piercing) as a complete ready-to-go assembly.
Earth Bonding Accessories
Earth Leads & Earth Reference Bars
The equipotential bonding lead is needed to prevent significant touch voltages within the medical environment. In order to bond all equipment and devices safely within the medical environment equipotential leads that are highly flexible and highly conductive are needed.
Earth Reference Bars:
Synergy Medical supply a new range of Medipower Earth Reference Bars (ERB) to supply all Group 1 and Group 2 medical locations. The ERB’s adhere to the International Standard HD 60364-7-710, protecting both patients and clinicians in healthcare environments.
Brandon’s ERBs are available in flush or surface mounting options. They are simple to install with easily removable links in order to fulfill recognised test procedures. The coloured labeling system allows for ease of identification of all the system earths connected to the ERB.
Uninterruptible Power Supplies
Disruption to the electrical supply of critical care medical equipment used in operating theatres and intensive care units can put patients’ lives at risk. By installing a UPS system, the impact of spurious power failures can be minimised.
A UPS system will continue to supply power in the event of mains failure for a period of typically 15 minutes to 3 hours depending upon the size of the batteries. As the switch over from mains supply to UPS supply is seamless, an integrated IPS/UPS system from Synergy Medical is an ideal solution for critical medical equipment.
- Low power consumption
- Simple to install
- Maximum reliability & efficiency
- High level battery reliability
- Sensitive supply compatible
- advanced communication – multi platform communication for all networks and operating systems.
Isolated Power Supplies
Also known as a medical IT system, an IPS system provides safe delivery of electrical power. We work in partnership with ESA Grimma to produce system solutions that ensure safe energy distribution.
The International Standard HD60364-7-710 and the Institution of Electrical Engineers (Guidance note 7, Chapter 10) define medical location into groups 0, 1 & 2. Group 2 locations include operating theatres, intensive care units and special care baby units.
The IPS system provides continuity of supply in the instance of the first insulation fault. IPS also offers additional protection from electrical leakage currents, for group 2 locations or HTM06-01 for clinical risk category 5 areas.
IPS units can be provided in a number of KVA sizes and in single through to triple variants in one enclosure.
Automatic Electrical Supply
The standards state that Group 2 Medical Locations shall have an automatic electrical supply available within 0.5 seconds of power failure. In the UK, it is common place to support the IPS system with an upstream Uniterruptible Power Supply (UPS) in order to meet the 0.5 second requirement. In other parts of the world, this may be by switching to an alternative source of supply.
The Astralite HD-LED by Brandon Medical has the following features:
Clear and simple wipe clean controls provide adjustments of intensity and colour, whilst the field size can be adjusted to suit the surgical site using the ergonomic handle.
“Auto On” Feature
The Astralite® “Auto On” feature turns the light on as soon as the user touches any control.
Astralite® provides up to 100,000 lux of intense bright light at 1m providing ample light for even the most demanding procedure
Larger Illuminated Area
A large illuminated area of 180 mm diameter makes it easy to illuminate large areas of tissue and to target the light on to the wound.
Deeper Cavity Illumination
The beams of light from Astralite® have a focus depth of 600mm to penetrate into deep cavities.
Higher Colour Rendition
Astralite® reproduces all of the visible colours naturally and accurately. The high Ra>95 describes the exceptionally high quality of white light whilst the high R9>95 measurement describes how it accurately.
Astramax HD-LED is a state of the art operating theatre light from Brandon Medical.
Astramax bridges the gap between the biggest operating theatre lights and smaller minor operating lights. Astramax carries all of the advantages of HD-LED technology including:
- Full Spectrum Colour Rendition
- The first LED lighting with near perfect colour rendition across the full visible spectrum. This reduces eye strain and enables small differences in tissue to be distinguished easily.
Fat Beam Illumination.
- More light flux provides the biggest beams of light in the business, bigger illuminated fields and more light across the full width of the illuminated area.
Red Balance Control
- The highest R9 red colour rendition of any product provides the optimum visualisation of red tissues. Red balance enhancement compensates for our natural weakness in distinguishing shades of red.
Staff Attack Systems
SecurWATCH IP provides security for staff in potentially dangerous workplaces, and is therefore ideal for use in psychiatric facilities, prisons and other lone worker locations.
The emergency call function allows the wearer to quickly summon assistance in challenging situations. The wearer simply needs to press the red alarm button on the transponder wristband.
An alert is triggered and the precise location of the staff member displayed either on stand alone displays, as part of an IP nurse call system or forwarded to Dect Telephones, pagers, smart phones etc
For especially hazardous locations a “Man Down” transponder can be used. The system responds immediately if a person falls and is unable to get up by him- or herself. In this case, assistance is automatically requested.
