Quasar® eLite, the innovative new operating light from member company Brandon Medical, has received rave reviews since its roll out earlier this year.
Orders have been coming in thick and fast for the OR light and end users have commented how the array of features have vastly improved their operating theatre experience.
Brandon Medical has completed instillations at Bradford Royal Infirmary and London’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital. With many further installations in the pipeline, Brandon Medical are hopeful that the Quasar® eLite will continue to shine and impress surgeons up and down the country. Theatre staff at QEH are said to have commented how easy the light heads are to manoeuvre, a direct result of the bespoke spring arm system used in the Quasar® eLite.
Staff also commented on the ease of focusing the light and how this has helped them cut procedure time down. The ease of focusing is helped by Fat Beam Illumination, a feature which ensures a high intensity of light is maintained across the full width of the light beam. Sandra Martin, Operational Manager at QEH commented “The only complaint I have is why do we not have these (Quasar® eLite) in all the theatres?”.
To compliment the excellent lighting characteristics, Quasar® eLite packs a number of world class features into its slim, low-weight chassis. It is the first OR light to feature an HD-SDI camera fully embedded into the light head. The camera is full HD, equipped with zoom controls and allows for outstanding picture quality on even the largest monitors. Further to providing a platform for tele-medicine systems, mounting the camera inside the lamp head has more practical benefits in obviating the need for excessively large handles usually found when encasing the camera inside the light’s main handle.
Staff are also said to have commented on how easy the lights are to clean. Infection control has been at the forefront since Quasar® eLite’s conception. All surfaces of the light-head are smooth and easy to clean, have anti-microbial coatings and are sealed to prevent the ingress of dirt or bacteria. Quasar® eLite can also be specified with remote controls which enable the control from outside of the sterilised field to further reduce the infection risk.
