Telstar provides double light beam to ops theatre lighting system

Published: 8-Mar-2017

FlexInLight, which replaces conventional surgical lamps, eliminates any obstacles, whilst assuring a greater level of asepsis in the critical zone around the patient

A new version of the automatic surgical lighting system integrating a double light beam technology has been developed by Telstar.

Designed to be embedded into the laminar flow ceilings in operating theatres, FlexInLight Double Spot Light allows the projection of double light beam onto working surgical space and provides lighting precision to two points at once allowing the surgeon to operate simultaneously in two different zones.

Incorporating motorised spot lights integrated into laminar flow ceilings, the new spot-light system provides a double light source to any point on command of the user in a precise manner within a surgical working open space, without physical obstructions.

Using a pointing device as a remote control, the surgeon can decide and act directly to determine the exact position where the light beam must be projected at all times, a process that is significantly quicker and more accurate than that available from conventional lighting systems.

Embedded into the laminar flow ceilings, this sophisticated system replaces conventional surgical lamps to provide an open space within the working area, removing obstructions in the laminar flow ventilation process, which is one of the main drawbacks caused by the presence of traditional lamps. This is a main feature that contributes to reduce the prevalence of surgery infections and to provide an environment with low level of turbulence and minimum level of contamination.

Designed particularly for operating theatres that require a high level of bacteriological safety, such as major surgery operating theatres, this new lighting system ensures the asepsis within the working area, offering the maximum degree of protection against possible post-surgical infections produced by microorganisms in the air inside the operating theatres, caused or generated by exposed instruments, equipment and lamps in the air flow.
