Prevention of infections in Ophthalmology.

TOUL horizontal laminar flow creates a strictly aseptic space and removes 99.9% of airborne bacteria and micro-organisms, including Coronavirus.

TOUL creates a horizontal air flow that removes obstacles and works directly on the surgical site and instruments, by reducing the bacterial count in critical areas up to 95%, and by creating a strictly aseptic environment, even in an outpatient setting.

Performing intravitreal injections and small procedures in outpatient settings.

Patients suffering from maculopathies, such as age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) or diabetic macular oedema, currently have to wait a long time before having access to treatment, thus losing the benefits of previous treatments, and causing a resurgence (sometimes irreversible) of the illness.

TOUL Operio allows transferring IVT and small procedures in standard outpatient settings, in extremely safe conditions for doctors and patients.

This solution has already been adopted by many public and private Hospitals throughout the Country.

A horizontal laminar flow equipped with Hepa 14 filter is mentioned in the SOI Guidelines (April 2020) and AIMO Recommendations (August 2020) concerning the IVT.

The introduction of the TOUL technology helps to significantly reduce waiting times, in relatively short periods and with very limited investments.

The mobile sterile air production unit requires only a standard power socket; in addition, the unit is trolley-mounted and the back handle allows moving it quickly between different environments.

Benefits for the facility:

  • very high level of asepsis (Standard ISO 5)
  • lower management costs and less staff required during the IVT session
  • higher productivity and shorter waiting times: possibility to carry out also small procedures, such as chalazion, stitches, etc.
  • tracking systems for defensive medicine
  • possibility of increasing the number of procedures per session
  • possibility of reserving operating rooms for major surgeries

The ophthalmology OR

The air filtered through traditional ventilation systems is pushed inside the Operating Room from the vents on the ceiling toward the floor. However, instruments are almost always prepared outside the sterile area, since the air vents are not sufficient to cover the entire table, and even the operating field is often not located underneath the sterile air vent.

Removing obstacles for a direct flow

TOUL creates a direct horizontal air flow on the instruments and surgical wound, thus maximizing their effectiveness and preserving the asepsis of the critical area (instruments and operating field).

An old operating theatre can be transformed in a completely aseptic operating area in just a few minutes.
