First Place: Pare Surgical’s NOVA Surigcal Light Source
The NOVA Surgical Light Source is a disposable hand held surgical light that brings better visualization to the surgical field. Its three LEDs illumination are positioned to provide light virtually eliminating shadows. Gives surgeons the opportunity to see inside the human body when operating through small incisions better than ever before. The company’s three LED lighting system provides light directly onto the surgical site shining uniformly across deep dark incisions. Surgeons say the additional light enables clarity and confidence enhance performance, efficiency and safety and allows them to do surgeries more quickly and effectively. The NOVA also delivers the RF energy from electrosurgical generators, using the cut and coag buttons located on the top of the device. Because the light are powered from self-contained batteries, the device can also be used as a portable light source by the surgeon or scribe nurse to gain even better illumination of the surgical site.
