Have you ever wondered what is so special about surgical lights? Why can’t conventional lights be used for surgery?

To understand what makes surgical lights different than conventional lights, here are a few things you should know:


Surgeons must be able to accurately distinguish contours, colors, and motion.
It can provide a light intensity close to sunlight quality, a light intensity of at least 100,000 illuminance and a surgical shadowless lamp. The brightness of the lamp is as high as 150,000 degrees, and the brightness of the surgical shadowless lamp can be adjusted steplessly.
In case of failure during operation, the backup bulb can automatically switch for 0.3 seconds, so the surgical shadowless light can provide safe surgical lighting.


The reflective surface is formed once by industrial stamping, and the reflectivity is as high as 95%, forming a homogenous light beam. A deep operating area is formed by a beam of light 80cm below the light panel to ensure operation.
When the surgeon’s shoulders, hands and head block part of the light source, the brightness of the light has no shadows and still maintains a very uniform appearance. Surgical shadowless lamps avoid heat generation when the light is bright.


It fits the human eye very well.
That doesn’t mean it has a big impact on the human eye, and it can reduce eye strain caused by high-intensity surgery.


The new filter filters 99.5% of the infrared component to ensure that the light reaching the operating area is cool.
Surgical shadow-free design installation position and high standard sealing handle can effectively control the number of pathogens, and can be detached and sterilized.
