Trumpf Receives

The TRUMPF iLED surgical and procedure light from TRUMPF Medical Systems won the “Best in Show” and the “Architect’s Choice” awards in the Annual Symposium Distinction Awards competition, which honors design teams and individuals who have made a profound contribution to the healthcare design industry. In addition, it recognizes products exhibited at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo.

The iLED has applications in the OR, ER and ICU. The iLED 5 surgical light uses 184 white and color LEDs to produce 160,000 Lux of low heat, virtually shadow-free illumination. Since each LED in the iLED has its own convergence lens, overlapping fields of light are produced which virtually eliminate shadows cast over the surgical site by equipment and the movement of the surgical team. In addition to shadows, heat is also noticeably absent when using the iLED. Its 160,000 Lux of illumination is produced without the expected heat emission, thanks to the “cold” IR-free light of the LEDs. Even directly under the light, practically no heat can be felt, with the total heat increase at the surgeon’s head measuring less than 1 degree Celcius. This improves the comfort of the surgeon and the surgical team, thereby enhancing their ability to perform.
