The exciplex laser we designed is used to correct vision. It comes with a whole variety of technological innovation. For instance, the electrically powered laser arm can be swivelled by 90°, which is a particularly useful feature when preparing to operate on patients.
Amaris won with the coveted Industry Award 2008 in the medical engineering section, organised by Initiative Mittelstand, a non-profit organisation that promotes the interests of small to medium-sized enterprises.
The jury made particular mention of the laser's outstanding design, also its innovative technology that enables physicians to perform operations on the eye with far greater precision and in less time.
