Optican produces a wide variety of medical equipment, including test instruments such as eye charts.
MediGel is a topical healing agent produced by Optican. It is advanced enough to heal various kinds of wounds, from blunt trauma to plasma burns. Every pack of MediGel has a five-step instruction sheet on how to apply the gel:
MediGel is similar to UNSC biofoam. They both have healing properties and are used in cases where medics are not available. However, unlike Biofoam, MediGel does not pack or put pressure on the wound. Biofoam is injected or sprayed into wounds, whilst Medigel is rubbed onto a wound, bruise, or burn.
Optican health packs are portable MediGel containers, and can be used to replenish the health of the user in an emergency situation.
First aid stations
First aid stations are fixed terminals with two sockets for health packs. There were many of these stations in the city of New Mombasa during 2552. They promise to give an accurate diagnosis, or refund the customer. UNSC military personnel were able to access the first aid stations without paying any sort of fee. This could be because the Superintendent, New Mombasa's custodial AI, had unlocked all the stations so the soldiers could access them, or perhaps because the stations were designed to automatically dispense for free in case of a state of emergency.
Statenizol is a recently developed, mood-settling drug produced by Optican.
