Carelite LED - New generation
Design: Aleksander Borgenhov
The new Carelite is a natural development of our original patients bed head luminaire, which can be found in hospital wards and patient rooms all over the world.
It is the use of modern LED light sources that has made it possible to reduce the size of the new lamp head, compared with the original. Still, the integrated ergonomic handle remains an important feature, enabling the patient to direct the light exactly where he or she wants it, with minimal effort. The switch is positioned exactly where the thumb will find it when the hand grabs the handle. This makes operation easy even for patients with disabilities. Carelite is fully dimmable.
Integrated night light
Carelite is equipped with a night light, just enough for the nurse to check on the patient.
Carelite has a covered spring balanced arm for easy cleaning and safe and easy positioning. The flexibility and precision of the spring balanced arm means that Carelite can be positioned exactly where the light is required. The light sources are positioned well inside the lamp head, in order to avoid glare. This is particularly important in multi-bed wards, as it allows one patient to have his or her reading light on without disturbing other patients in the ward.
Carelite is made of powder-coated metal, such as aluminium and steel.
Protected by SteriTouch®
Carelite is painted with SteriTouch® antimicrobial powder coating, which prevents the growth of bacteria, biofilm and mould. Based on ionic silver technology, the antimicrobial performance remains continuously effective throughout the product's lifetime.
The new Carelite features the same arm construction and spigot as the traditional version. This means that all brackets and clamps can be reused with this new version.
LED – light source of the future
Light emitting diodes are not only small and robust. Carelites LEDs are extremely energy efficient, and have an incredible life span of 50 000 hours or more. The powerful LED module has an excellent light output giving approximately 2000 lux @ 0.6 metres.
