Just last week I was in the middle of a 3 hour something-or-other-otomy when I stepped on the cord powering my high-end surgical headlights. “Never Again!” I shouted to the OR staff, “it’s cordless surgical headlights, or none!” Lucky for me, evova Medical Technologies (yes, the “e” is lower-case) has launched the Iris line of cordless LED surgical headlights…
The IRIS and IRIS Ultra-lite headlights utilize the newest generation of LED illumination technology optimized for the high performance needs of the surgical operating room. Both products utilize a crizal coated front lens and proprietary reflector technology that deliver light output upwards of 100,000 lux (9,200 foot-candles) making the IRIS the brightest, whitest LED surgical headlight available today.
The IRIS headlight can be completely cordless and offers a physicians the flexibility of attaching batteries directly to the headset (weighing 17 oz.) or remove the batteries from the headset and power it by using a belt pack (weighing 11 oz.).
The IRIS Ultra-lite is an even lighter option, weighing less than nine ounces (9 oz,) with a battery powered belt pack. It’s also more aesthetically streamlined as the battery mounts and the crown knob strap have been removed from the headset.
…and in case it’s not obvious, that whole OR story is an engineer’s take on what goes on in the OR.
