TRUMPF Medizin Systeme GmbH + Co. KG

The First OR Light that Thinks for Itself

TRUMPF Medical Systems will present TruLight 5520 - the world’s first OR light with the unique function “adaptive light control plus” at the MEDICA trade show, November 18 to 21, 2009, in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Optimal lighting intensity
The new TruLight 5520 OR light eases the surgeon’s workload by automatically adapting illumination as situations change during surgery. It provides the perfect lighting for each phase of a surgical procedure. All the surgeon has to do is adjust his or her ideal lighting intensity at the beginning of the operation. Even if the light is moved during the operation, the light maintains the illumination pre-set by the surgeon. Adaptive light control plus thus ensures the best possible lighting conditions during the entire operation without the surgeon or the assistant having to readjust the light settings. This is particularly advantageous during operations in the stomach region, because this area often requires lights to be repositioned or refocused during operations.

Easy patient positioning
An additional trade show highlight from TRUMPF is a new extension unit for the most diverse orthopedic procedures on the lower extremities. The MIS hip set allows nursing staff to comfortably, yet flexibly, position the patient's leg for minimally invasive hip procedures. TRUMPF developed the new extension unit in cooperation with positioning specialists, orthopedists and trauma specialists particularly for the growing number of minimally invasive surgical procedures.

New trade show booth design accents reliability, innovation, efficiency
Reliability, innovation and efficiency are guide words for TRUMPF Medical Systems in its daily business and this year at MEDICA. The TruLight 5520 with adaptive light control plus and the new MIs hip set are examples of the company's new, innovative products. But TRUMPF has much more than these to share at its completely redesigned booth. It will also highlight – among others – forward-looking HD technologies in OR LED cameras and demonstrate as-yet-unpublished findings on OR table cushions and positioning aids. MEDICA not only represents an opportunity to present new products; it is also an outstanding communications platform. The TRUMPF booth will also hold lectures and provide information on hybrid ORs as well as host an open discussion on the company’s prototypes of potential products that can improve hospital efficiency and economy in the future. With its new booth design, TRUMPF also demonstrates a commitment to the trade show.

"The MEDICA trade show in Düsseldorf is an important platform for us to demonstrate our products and also to learn more about the needs of our customers first hand. This allows us to customize our solutions so that they give doctors and nursing staff the reliable support they need to lighten their daily workloads," said Dr. Kordt Griepenkerl, Managing Director of TRUMPF Medical Systems.
