Integra LifeSciences Features New LED Headlight System at American College of Surgeons Congress
Oct 25, 2011 Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp has announced the launch of its new Integra(TM) LED Headlight System, a surgical headlight system that is designed to deliver the cool brightness and color surgeons need for visibility, along with increased mobility in the operating room. The LED Headlight System has received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and will be featured at the 2011 American College of Surgeons 97th Annual Clinical Congress in San Francisco, California, October 23-27, 2011.
The new Integra(TM) LED Headlight System's vibrant color rendition maximizes visualization of critical anatomy across a broad range of surgical procedures. Its 25,000+ hour lamp life helps limit uncertainty by ensuring a dramatically longer life than more traditional xenon surgical lighting systems, which have a lamp life of approximately 1,000 hours. The LED Headlight System also provides greater mobility with either a lightweight 20-foot power cord that eliminates the clutter of floor stands and fiber optic cables, or a light weight battery option that allows surgeons untethered mobility within the operating room.
"We expect surgeons will welcome the same low cost of ownership, cool output and extremely long life that's helping LEDs become the standard in other markets. In addition, this self-contained headlight doesn't require fiber optic cords, introducing surgeons to a new level of independence, by allowing them to move more freely about the operating room," said Dan Reuvers, President, Instruments.
Integra currently offers an extensive range of surgical illumination products and accessories, including the Integra(TM) Luxtec(R) MLX 300W Xenon system, Integra(TM) Luxtec(R) 9300 XSP 300W Xenon system, Integra(TM) ProXenon(R) 300W Xenon system, as well as Integra(TM)UltraLite(R) Pro and CoolVent(TM) headlight systems.
