HD-LED® is a brand new breakthrough technology with substantially better performance than standard LED, offering near perfect colour rendition and reducing energy consumption by two-thirds over conventional lights. HD-LED® technology has been applied by Brandon Medical to new ranges of operating lights and minor surgical lamps, making them vastly improved and better performing than any existing lighting products on the market.
The Second award for ‘Collaborative Innovation’ celebrated the achievements of Brandon Medical’s work with world class technology partners which has resulted in the development of pioneering and innovative products.
