Since 1915, Welch Allyn has been continuously applying innovative strategies to professional health care settings to optimize the time and skill of practitioners as they provide comprehensive patient care. Founded by Dr. Francis Welch and William Noah Allyn, today the fourth generation of family members run the organization with corporate headquarters less than ten miles from where it was founded in Skaneateles Falls, New York. A leading global manufacturer of medical diagnostic equipment, Welch Allyn specializes in solutions for physical assessment, vital signs monitoring, cardiopulmonary diagnostic processes, and thermometry as well as a variety of software solutions and services.
Welch Allyn Ophthalmoscopes, nasal illuminators and otoscopes combine halogen light with multiple aperture options for optimal performance in general exams. With comfort features such as rubber brow rests, ergonomic grips and retractable lenses, these devices are compatible with all Welch Allyn power sources offering maximum versatility in diagnostic equipment. However, Welch Allyn goes far beyond basic diagnostic equipment. The Macroview Otoscope allows for 30 percent greater magnification and twice the field of vision of standard otoscopes, allowing practitioners to more accurately assess their patients.
In a study published in the Journal of Healthcare Information Management, it was found that automated vital signs documentation saved time compared to manual documentation and reduced errors by 75 percent. This is why Welch Allyn EKG/ECG systems offer a range of connectivity issues for every hospital data collection and monitoring system. With the simplicity of use and a seven-inch touch screen interface, advanced filters and optional MEANS ECG allows for increased patient accuracy without sacrificing efficiency in a clinical environment. Battery operation and internal memory allow for portability and data collection and comparison that can easily be transferred to a USB device. Many models are also equipped with 12-lead and spirometry features that allow for pre- and post-BD testing with automatic interpretation.
Complete diagnostic sets featuring blood pressure monitors, examination tools, and monitors are available for the complete equipment of medical settings of all sizes and budgets.
