The general practitioner is the first point of contact for a number of symptoms of diseases. In some health care systems of this world, he is the one, who detects and analyses all diseases and if need be, transfers the patient to a specialist. The special challenge here is, to quickly detect and accurately diagnose illnesses of various medical disciplines.
The anamnesis is a very important basis for making a diagnosis. In addition, the health care professional needs high-performance, medical devices which support him in the best way when making a diagnosis. HEINE Optotechnik is looking back on many years of experience in developing and producing medical devices and offers a wide range of high-quality primary diagnostic instruments.

The fundus provides information on diabetes, hypertension and a plethora of other diseases. Therefore, the examination of the eye with the help of an ophthalmoscope may also be useful for the general practitioner in the frame of a medical check-up.
In order to ensure the safe use of light sources, we develop and test our products in accordance to the requirements of the corresponding standards. Meeting photobiological safety standards is an essential part of our quality politics.
Product Line Sphygmomanometers and Stethoscopes
Measuring blood pressure is a simple examination method, but is of great importance for the early diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases and for monitoring a therapy with medications. The stethoscope is just as important. The results of the auscultation give indications about the health status of the patient.
The GAMMA G series of the HEINE Sphygmomanometers is shock resistant and provides precise measurement results. HEINE Stethoscopes offer excellent sound transmission. They are available in different sizes and with different membranes.
Product Line Illumination
A good light source is indispensable for the work of a doctor. The user can chose from universal and flexible examination lamps. Compact pocket lights and tongue-blade holders support, for example ,the diagnosis of the mouth and pharynx. Headlights are particularly well suited, if you have to work very precisely. They provide shadow-free illumination and maximum mobility. In combination with binocular loupes they can be perfectly used for surgical procedures in a practice.
Beside the classic Xenon Halogen bulbs, LED illumination is increasingly used due to its durability and efficiency. For HEINE it is of great importance, to also fully fulfil the diagnostic requirements with LED technology. The authentic colour rendering of LED illumination ensures that tissue colour and the colour of body fluids can be exactly interpreted and therefore guarantees a reliable diagnosis.
