Maquet PowerLED II Smart Surgical Lights Coming to America


Getinge has announced that its Maquet PowerLED II surgical lights are now available for purchase in the United States. The devices are applicable to general, as well as hybrid operating rooms, offering features that help illuminate all sorts of procedures.

The lights are powered by high-end LEDs, which can be tuned to deliver light of different colors, something that’s often useful in minimally invasive procedures. White light itself can be delivered at a preferred color temperature, helping to alleviate fatigue among the clinicians.

The Maquet PowerLED IIs have lasers built-in that are used to help align the lights onto the surgical scene, particularly beneficial when placing the adjustable light patch onto the target area.

The system is able to detect when a clinician obscures the lights, and automatically compensates by increasing brightness on the other LEDs to make sure the scene is well lit.
