KLARO

In Vivo Surgical Lighting

 

A co-development initiative between Vivo Surgical & Panasonic Lighting Europe GmbH.

Made in Singapore. Engineered in Germany. Designed for safety and quality.

INTRODUCING KLARO™

Appropriate lighting is crucial to the successful outcome of any surgery.

Whilst operating theatres are equipped with overhead lighting, surgeons still find it challenging to achieve optimal vision especially for deep cavity open surgery procedures. Shadow effects caused by operators and objects, which increase with depth of surgery, and the use of headlamps, often perceived as being cumbersome and restrictive, contribute to the problem. 

Presenting KLARO™ - the only way for surgeons to achieve uniform flood-lighting from within surgical cavities.

KLARO™ comprises a fully-flexible 4.6mm diameter LED light strip, which is freely bendable and can be safely placed deep inside the open surgical cavity, as well as a clip-like driver unit that fastens onto surgical drapes during use. The entire device is a single-use disposable, maintaining a working temperature of below 38°C* over a 4-hour lifespan, making it appropriate for most open surgery applications. 

*measured at an ambient room temperature of 25°C

Patent granted. FDA accreditation and CE Mark expected in Q4 2019.

 

KEY PRODUCT FEATURES

 

Adjustable Long-Lasting Illumination


KLARO™ maintains a safe working temperature of below 38°C and has 4 adjustable light intensities.

It's 4 -hour battery life means one device is sufficient to last for the entire duration of most open surgery procedures.


Flexible Lighting

KLARO™ can be bent freely to provide variable angles of uniform illumination of over 180°.

Self-Retaining


KLARO™ can retain its position hands-free as its driver unit enables it to be clipped onto various surfaces, e.g. the surgical drapes covering the patient.

 


Sterile and Single-Use Disposable


The device comes sterilized for convenience and is intended for single-use only to prevent cross-contamination.

SMALL FORM FACTOR


Designed to be unobtrusive and compact, KLARO™ is equipped with a  4.6mm diameter light strip powered by a smartly built housing of the appropriate size to suit any user.
