Adjustable illumination provides bright light precisely where you want it, and its streamlined suction channel reduces smoke without impacting technique. Plus it’s non-conductive and thermally cool, meaning you can focus less on thermal hazards and more on the surgical task at hand.
Bright and thermally cool illumintation; protects against thermal damage to tissues, surgical drapes, etc
Backed by nearly 100 patents
Volumetric spread provides even lighting across the cavity without washing out tissue color
Microlenses shape light to reduce shadow and glare
Solid core optical-grade polymer reduces light loss and thermal risks
Compatible with a wide variety of light sources, including Stryker's LED and Xenon light sources (ACMI connection)
Adjustable illumination allows precision placement of light along entire retractor length
Helps reduce exposure by capturing smoke – and the potential hazards it carries – directly at the source
Helps maintain clear operative site for better visualization
Eliminates management of separate smoke device
Reduces hands and instruments in field
Preserves surgeon’s natural technique
Compatible with commercially available smoke tubing and suction sources such as the SafeAir Compact Smoke Evacuator and the Neptune System smoke evacuator
Helps fulfill government and clinical guidelines surrounding surgical smoke3,7-10
