How to Use

  1. Fix the screen on top of the mechanical machines.
  2. Plug in the power line and video line into the interface of the base.
  3. Connect the plug; the plug will display green lights. Press the “Power” button of the screen and wait for 3 seconds; the screen will light up.
  4. Apply three drops of oil at the intersection of the ring finger nails and skin. Place the oil-coated finger in the finger hold.
  5. Adjust the coarse handwheel until the screen displays images, then fine-tune using the fine handwheel for clearer pictures. The larger wheel is for coarse adjustments, while the smaller one is for fine adjustments.
  6. Move the platform laterally to find the first line of vessels (capillary tube) and fine-tune the focus to get a clear picture of the vessels. Your fingers should move from left to right on the double loading platform. Adjust the platform lateral movement handwheel to find the first line of vessels and rotate the fine handwheel for clear images.
  7. If there are spots on the screen, rotate the camera right and left to eliminate them.

Nailfold capillaroscopy, powered by advanced capillary microscopes like those offered by MAIKONG, plays a pivotal role in the early diagnosis and monitoring of scleroderma. This non-invasive technique provides healthcare professionals with valuable insights into the disease, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
