Infographic: Stereo Microscope Ergonomic Guide


Published on

Using a stereo microscope can be uncomfortable. With this in mind, Olympus’ new ergonomic components for its SZX2 stereo microscope series enable users to remain in an ergonomic position while working, boosting productivity and reducing user fatigue. Designed to help microscope operators stay comfortable even during long work periods, Olympus’ new ergonomic stereo microscope components include:

• Tilting trinocular that can be adjusted between 5 and 45 degrees to keep the user’s neck in a more natural position
• Observation tubes with an optimized convergence angle designed to minimize eye fatigue
• Extendable eyepoint adjuster that can raise or lower the eyepoint within a 120mm range, eliminating the need to hunch over when using the microscope. This accommodates users of different heights and reduces lower back strain.
