Original Press Release:
New Versalight® from LumitexMD(TM) Improves Suction, Cable Management and Uniform Illumination
Strongsville, OH, August 2007- Lumitex Medical Devices(TM) has introduced a new generation of its patented VersaLight® single-use surgical device. The VersaLight® is five times brighter, as well as cooler, stronger and less costly, than its chief competitor, the Vital Vue(TM). The new offering features improved suction, a new cable management system, and uniform, cool, shadowless light.
Extra relief holes in the new VersaLight® increase suction effectiveness and allow surgeons to wipe the tissue dry while preventing tissue grab. The surgeon can also choose between more or less suction with a conveniently located finger-controlled aspiration hole.
Using existing OR light sources, the VersaLight® has a more uniform spot light, which improves visualization in deep cavity surgery, helping minimize blood loss and optimize navigation.
VersaLight's new cable management system features spiral wrap-arounds, keeping multiple cables and tubing bundled together with minimal effort. They are easy to apply, remove, and reposition during surgery.
"By listening to our customers, we've made the product easier to use, with better suction and light," commented Peter Broer, President of LumitexMD. "It is simpler and more effective than its predecessor, as well as the competition."
The VersaLight's 4-in-1 design brings suction, irrigation, retraction and light. Ergonomically designed for comfort in any hand position, VersaLight® can be inserted directly into deep cavities, small openings, under flaps, or in lateral margins. It helps to access, visualize, irrigate and clear the surgical site, while saving operative time, space and cost. It attaches easily to existing OR equipment, requires no capital investment, and offers a lower cost-per-use. Its unique combination of features makes it ideal for gynecological, general, colorectal, plastic and other surgical procedures.
VersaLight's horizontally-seamed design enables it to withstand approximately 10 lbs. of retraction force, making it easier to reposition tissue for better access and providing a clearer view. VersaLight® irrigates at the push of a button to provide a controlled fluid stream on demand. It attaches to standard hospital tubing to provide sterile irrigation from a sterile solution bag with a pressurized cuff or any standard infusion pump.
