FS 5-33

The FS 5-33 stand is a support unit for surgical microscopes, to for example move them to the application site for neurosurgical operations and to position them there in a stable manner. The microscope is fixed at the end of the arm and can be moved without the need to use force. To enable this, electromagnetic brakes are released by pressing the orange buttons on the stand or microscope and automatically fixed again after positioning. This allows the microscope to be positioned extremely sensitively and precisely.

The design is based on the corporate product design defined by Held+Team.
