MAQUET Medical Systems USA Receives 510(k) Clearance for VOLISTA(TM) Surgical Lighting SystemNew offering complements MAQUET’s portfolio of innovative hospital lighting and will be available for sale in the U.S.
WAYNE, N.J.--(Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network)--MAQUET Medical Systems USA, a leading supplier of medical equipment for operating, hybrid and induction rooms, intensive care units and patient transport, today announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted 510(k) clearance for the VOLISTA Surgical Lighting System. VOLISTA, an extension of the TRIOP™ light assembly, is the first lighting system that allows surgeons the flexibility to easily configure the equipment to meet the needs of the procedure, instead of working within the confines of a static operating room.
“The VOLISTA system is another addition to our portfolio of hospital lighting that enables surgeons to configure the operating room in the way they find most useful and productive, based on the procedure that they are conducting,” said Raoul Quintero, President of MAQUET Medical Systems USA. “Furthermore, the VOLISTA system allows operating rooms to become more versatile and used for a wide variety of procedures, ultimately helping to ensure that each operating room in the hospital is being maximized.”
VOLISTA surgical lighting system incorporates MAQUET’s innovative Luminance Management Device (LMD) technology, providing surgeons a clear and accurate view of anatomical structures during surgery, minimal peripheral reflections and assurance of equivalent light levels. The VOLISTA system also offers the choice of three color temperatures (3900, 4500 or 5100°K) to adapt the illumination based on the surgery being performed.
