October 8, 2007

October 8, 2007 - Enova Medical Technologies said today it developed new LED technology for cordless surgical headlights reaching light output levels exceeding 200,000 lux at 14 inches.

The company says this new technology provides light intensity comparable to most 300-watt fiber optic xenon headlight systems that are commonly used by “deep cavity” surgeons, such as cardio, colorectal, neuro, orthopedic, thoracic, and vascular surgeons.

The company will introduce its technology during the American College of Surgeons (ACS) 93rd Clinical Congress, Oct. 7-11, at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.

Enova will use its new lighting technology in the IRIS 2X Cordless Surgical Headlight, a new product being designed specifically for deep cavity surgeons. The anticipated commercial release date will be in the first quarter of 2008.

Enova Medical Technologies is engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of proprietary medical devices.
