Light lets us see.
Rays from the sun enter our eyes and light up the world. Flashlights and lamps do the same thing. They let us see what’s in front of us.
Light is important for us. For doctors and surgeons, it’s more than that – it’s vital. It’s why hospitals are so bright. You can’t perform surgery in the dark.
Surgeries involving awkward positions aren’t the easiest things to have proper lighting on. Surgical lights help by letting surgeons specify where exactly to focus the light on. Even that isn’t always enough. Surgeons sometimes require focused lighting in a very small area.
The problem is finding a solution that avoids tissue damage from the light source overheating.
It’s also a problem that surgical lighting company, LumeNXT, hopes to solve.
A New Approach
The company hopes to provide surgeons with a better light source with their product.
Attempts at similar devices have been made in the past. Most have ended in failure. Poor lighting, cumbersome size, and excessive heat generation all prevented such devices from seeing widespread use.
The company’s solution tries to avoid these problems.
The small device – placed near or inside the wound – continuously gives out a high-intensity light. LumeNXT’s design allowing it to produce virtually no heat at all. The use of batteries removes the need for an electrical outlet.
Newly appointed CEO, Marc Beer, believes the importance of the technology will increase as the number of minimally invasive surgeries also increases. He believes that the company has already advanced the field of surgical lighting with their device.
