Capacitive Sensor Ensures Optimum Images for Surgical Microscopes

Surgical procedures require a perfect view of the operating area. Surgeons often use surgical microscopes for support. A high-precision capacitive sensor is used to stabilise the microscope's field of view. The lenses of a surgical microscope are attached to long tripod arms. These enable the surgeon to accurately position the microscope and provide the surgical team with more space to manouvre....
