A  cleverly designed piece of kit can really help people who are visually impaired to deal with the challenges of everyday life.

The high quality smartlux DIGITAL electronic magnifier combines compact style, contemporary design, but also sophisticated functionality, which makes it ideal for a whole variety of vision tasks.

What does it do?

Electronic magnifiers enhancing daily life

The non-reflective 5″ LCD provides the user with an extremely large visual field and together with the high quality colour camera produces a brilliant, full colour image.

It is equipped with an integrated, adjustable stand. When the stand is fully extended, the magnifier is ideal for reading and in the half-extended position, it is ideal for writing. What’s more, its lightweight and ergonomic design ensures comfortable use as an elegant hand-held magnifier.

The brightness of the display can be adjusted to suit the individual requirements of the user. Due to its generous depth of focus, the smartlux DIGITAL always provides pin sharp images even at different viewing distances – and offers 1.7 – 12x magnification, which is adjustable in 4 steps. In addition to a full colour-viewing mode, smartlux DIGITAL also offers four additional modes for contrast enhancement in black/white, white/black, black/yellow and yellow/black.

The LED lighting on the underside of the magnifier can also be switched off for better use on high gloss paper.

In addition, smartlux DIGITAL features a very useful photo function which is extremely versatile: for example, it is ideal for taking a photo of price tags and labels which are difficult to reach in the supermarket or for capturing telephone numbers, addresses and travel times. Up to 20 images can be stored in the internal memory.
