Advancements In Medical Technology Is Expected To Boost Growth Of The Global Sur
Posted by Pareesh on March 5th, 2018
Surgical lamp also known as operating light or surgical overheads are medical devices used by surgeons or medical personnel during surgery. They are used to illuminate the area on which surgery is to be performed. It is combination of several lights and accessories, which is together called as surgical light system. The system provides optical illumination during procedures such as neurosurgery, dental surgery, and optical surgery. It provides bright and shadow free light for visualising small and low contrast objects within the body cavities during surgery. Quality of light is measured on the basis of homogeneity, luminous flux (LUX), light field diameter, and battery backup and it can be controlled according to the requirement during surgery. An ideal surgical lamp should be able to eliminate shadows and highlight the small organs or tissues to be examined during surgery. High quality light provides colour rendition, shadow control, and deep cavity illumination, which assists surgeons to work accurately and consistently.
Advancements in medical technology is expected to boost growth of the global surgical lamps market
Surgical lamps market is expected to witness positive shifts, owing to easy use and safety of new developed surgical lamps such as DRE Maxx Luxx LED 160 manufactured by Avante healthcare solution and Sim.LED 250 by Simon medical launched in 2014.DRE Maxx Luxx LED 160 has LED touched screen for easily adjustable output, and adjustable colour temperature for optimising human tissue colours. Sim.LED 250 has seamlessly sealed design meeting the highest hygienic demands. Surgical lamps with light emitting diode (LED) technology such as Astramax HD- LED by Brandon Medical, Sim.LED by Simon Medical offer more advantages such as energy efficiency and long lifetime as compared to other surgical lamps, which are made by halogen or fluorescent light. Azbil Telstar, S.L., Spain-based company has launched new version of automatic surgical lightening system for laminar airflow operating systems in 2017. LED lamps provide shadow free illumination of the work field, bright and high contrast light for better examination and surgery, full spectrum colour rendition, cool light, and long life span. Furthermore, new technologies such as light emitting diode (LED) 560 and florescent lamps are enabling cost effective production of surgical lamps as these lamps have longer lifetime and uses up to 90 % less energy than traditional sources. However, high cost associated with CFL’s and LED’s and the side effects such as migraines and eye strain caused by the exposure to surgical lamps are the factors restraining growth of the surgical lamps market.
North America holds dominant position in surgical lamps market, owing adoption of advanced technology and well established medical infrastructure
North America region dominated the surgical lamps market, owing to better healthcare infrastructure, which is driving the growth of surgical lamps market. According to American Society of Cataract and Refractive Survey (ASCRS) in 2016, around 3.6 million cataract surgeries are performed annually in the U.S., which requires high quality of surgical lamps such as ZEISIS OPMI LUMERA 300 LED light in microscopes. Surgical lamps is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period, owing to various government initiatives to produce and promote energy efficient surgical lamps and reduce mercury and argon gas emission from medical devices. In Asia Pacific region, increasing adoption of advanced healthcare facilities is increasing demand for surgical lamps in order to improve the medical outcomes, which in turn is expected to fuel growth of the market in this region.
Major players operating in surgical lamps market include Stryker Corporation, Skytron, Steris Corporation, General Electric Company, Eaton Corporation Plc, Koninkiljke Philips N.V., Welch Allyn, Brandon Medical, and Simon Medical.
