Burton Medical Receives FDA Clearance for its AIM-200 OR Light Source for Surgical Operating Rooms
Newly cleared surgical equipment provides compact, versatile
and high performance medical light.
CHATSWORTH, CA (October 20, 2010) – Burton Medical, Inc., the leader in examination and minor surgery lighting equipment, has received FDA clearance for its AIM-200 OR light for surgical lighting applications in operating rooms for ambulatory surgical centers as well as acute care facilities.
First introduced this past May, the AIM-200 OR has been a preferred choice for minor surgery applications, but now has been cleared as a major surgical device with FDA Class II clearance. This includes applications in ambulatory surgical centers, hospital emergency departments, and demanding applications in dermatology, plastic and reconstructive surgery. Product is available in four mounting options, including floor, wall, single and double ceiling mountings. In addition, the AIM-200 OR features a 360-degree rotation in its flexible, self-balancing arm-and-mounting-system, which provide a maximum reach of 63 inches and a diameter of 10 feet.
Ideal for long hours of use, the AIM-200 OR is equipped with three 35-watt IRC halogen bulbs, which together produce an amazing 90,000 Lux at a distance of one (1) meter. With a color-rendering index (CRI) of 96 and color temperature of 3700K, the AIM-200 OR helps to enhance a physician’s vision during minor and major surgery by providing a clear, crisp, natural light. The unique Y-shaped design helps to minimize the obstruction of light into the surgical field, offering a larger and adjustable light pattern without casting shadows. Additional features include an easily replaceable bulb system and a sterilizable handle. Assembled in the United States, the AIM-200 OR is supported by a five-year limited warranty.
