Printing options

For the documentation of the measuring results a self-adhesive label or a measurement report/screening report can be printed. Following options are available:

The plusoptiX P12 is a wireless, battery-operated thermal printer with infrared interface. It is not included in the scope of delivery and has to be ordered separately. Click here to download the plusoptiX P12 user manual.

After each measurement with the Plusoptix device, any number of labels for documenting the measurement results can be printed out. To do so, simply align the Plusoptix device with the infrared receiver of the printer. The distance between the device and the printer should be approximately 1 m (3,28 ft). As soon as you touch the printer symbol on the screen of the Plusoptix device, the data is transmitted and a label is printed out. To confirm the transmission, a blue control lamp lights up in the infrared receiver. Keep the device directed at the printer until the label has been printed and the blue control lamp turns off.

plusoptiXconnect is a universal printer driver for Windows PCs. With this software the measurement reports / screening reports (PDF files) generated by Plusoptix devices can be printed out on any optional printer connected with your PC. The access to the PDF files stored on an external memory (16: USB, 12C: SD card) takes place over the computer network.

After a completed measurement a measurement report / screening report is saved on the external memory of the Plusoptix device. This measurement report is then received by plusoptiXconnect as a new PDF file and can then:

  • be printed out automatically on a printer connected with your workstation computer
  • be displayed automatically as a PDF file on the Desktop

In order to print out only screening reports with a particular screening result, with plusoptiX S12C and S16 the PDF files can be selected individually according to the screening result.

Connection to your Electronic Medical Record (CSV)

As an alternative to the manual entry of the patient data, Plusoptix devices can also be connected to your Electronic Medical Record (CSV). In this case, patient data is transferred to the device prior to the measurement via your network server. After the measurement has been taken, the measurement result is automatically retransferred via your server to your Electronic Medical Record (CSV).

Parent Information

Since we receive 80% of all information through our eyes, they are the body's most important sensory organ. It’s interesting that newborns have to learn to see just as much as to walk and speak. Every day parents witness progress as their baby learns to move or speak their first words but how and what the child sees remains unknown.
Two healthy eyes are crucial to a child's wellbeing and development. A visual disorder compromises social and scholastic achievements, can be dangerous in traffic and restrict occupational choices later in life.
