Light-Op is a surgical overhead light designed to bridge the current surgical and emergency lighting gap in limited resource hospitals. It includes a flashlight add-on to enable essential medical care outside the operating room. The main light is a high-quality, shadow-eliminating surgical light that uses high efficiency, low power LEDs. It is powered by a car battery that can be connected to solar power or mains, providing up to 35 hours of light independent of the electrical grid. The flashlight is powered for up to 9 hours by rechargeable batteries.
I am a Product Designer aiming to improve access to healthcare and medical devices in limited-resource settings. Having completed my studies at the University of Leeds, I'm looking for a career in the design and humanitarian field with a focus on healthcare and International Development.more
