May 22, 2007 - Enova Medical Technologies recently announced the debut of its Iris, Iris Ultra-lite and HELIOS fiber-optic headlights optimized for the high performance needs of the surgical operating room.
The IRIS headlight can be completely cordless and reportedly offers physicians the flexibility of attaching batteries directly to the headset (weighing 17 ounces) or remove the batteries from the headset and power it by using a belt pack (weighing 11 ounces).
The IRIS Ultra-lite is a lighter option, weighing less than nine ounces with a battery powered belt pack. It is also more aesthetically streamlined as the battery mounts and the crown knob strap have been removed from the headset.
The HELIOS is a 300-watt xenon fiber optic light system that provides the 6000 Kelvin light. It has a variable light intensity control that allows 0-100 percent illumination. The HELIOS provides 600–1,000 hours of lamp life, a rotary turret that is designed to accept multiple type fiber optic light cables and a storage compartment for headlights, loupes and cables.
