Orascoptic launches its latest innovation: TruColor technology

Orascoptic is proud to announce a breakthrough in loupe illumination. TruColor is Orascoptic’s pioneering technology to achieve high-color rendering index (CRI) illumination. With this development, 90 CRI illumination is available for the first time in a loupe-mounted LED headlight, rendering colors much closer to natural sunlight and unlocking a markedly higher level of color accuracy.

Every loupe LED headlight currently available projects light that contains a relatively limited spectrum of colors, resulting in images that lack the true colors inherent in the viewed object. This can lead to surgical sites and oral surfaces that appear washed out and exhibit poor color accuracy.

TruColor represents a fundamental leap forward in loupe illumination technology. Orascoptic research and development teams have achieved a color rendering index score greater than 90 across Orascoptic’s full range of loupe headlights, yielding more vivid, truer colors. By comparison, all other loupe headlights on the market exhibit CRI values in the low 70s or below. Natural sunlight scores at the maximum 100 in the CRI index.

By combining an enhanced light source with innovative lens design and light beam control, Orascoptic has unlocked this color spectrum without compromising other important lighting performance parameters. Orascoptic’s new TruColor headlights deliver advanced color rendering with no degradation in light output, spot uniformity or battery run time.

Orascoptic loupes have already been demonstrated to deliver industry-leading scores in optical clarity, as measured by resolution and light transmission through the loupe optics, according to the company. With the addition of breakthrough color-rendering illumination, Orascoptic is proud to enable surgeons, dentists, hygienists and other medical professionals to more accurately visualize the work they perform. Clarity is better in TruColor.
