A complete and user friendly desktop solution: excellent functionality, adjustable settings to suit the individual and an ergonomic design combined in one device! During the development of the i-See we have taken into account the various needs of a wide range of users and how the device should fulfill those needs.
The i-See is able to work with all current TFT-screens between 17 inch and 22 inch. The i-See can be fully adjusted to the personal needs of the end user.
How does a CCTV work?
Place your viewing material on the tableau - this can be a piece of text (both handwriting and print can be viewed) or a photograph. This material will be enlarged on the screen.
CCTV's have multiple modes in which the device can be used, such as multiple high contrast modes that are ideal for reading texts. These high contrast modes increase the contrast to incredibly high levels, making the letters clearly legible. It's also possible to choose different colours for the text and/or background while reading. Apart from the high contrast modes, CCTV's also contain a so-called photograph mode with which you can view photographs and images in bright colours.
Focussing the image
The i-See uses a fast, silent autofocus system. This means you will always have a clear and crisp image on your screen. Even the thickest phone book, medicine packages with small text and photographs are displayed crystal clear. You will always have the option of continuous autofocus (automatic autofocus) or single use autofocus (manual autofocus).
Bright LED lighting
The i-See is equipped with custom bright lighting. This light is softer for your eyes, drastically reducing the so-called blinding effect. Because of this you can comfortably use the i-See both day and night.
When do I qualify for a CCTV?
You qualify for a CCTV when a significant loss of sight (low vision) is ascertained, making reading without a CCTV not possible or nearly impossible.
Where can I use a CCTV?
A CCTV can be used at home, work or at school.
Will my insurance cover the costs?
The costs of acquiring a CCTV will be completely covered by your insurance, unless stated otherwise. In order to qualify for a CCTV, it must be prescribed by a low vision expert that is approved of by your insurance agency.
All health insurance agencies cover the costs of a CCTV by Van Lent Systems.
Usually your GP will direct you to an eye doctor or similar expert. In the Netherlands there are several regional low vision centers where you can go for all your low vision needs. These low vision centers have i-See's which you can try out. Please contact us to find out where the nearest low vision center is for you.
Who uses an i-See?
People who find that their glasses or hand magnifying glasses are no longer sufficient to aid them in reading or writing. i-See devices are being used to great effect by people with the following conditions: Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Diabetic Retinopathy, Glaucoma and Cataracts.
