In general, work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) is a common pressing challenge being realised by surgeons in different countries and healthcare settings.

This pertinent issue calls for solutions which improve surgeon safety to be introduced and implemented as soon as possible.

By using KLARO™️ to light up surgical cavities in place of conventional headlights, or by reducing the reliance on these headlights, the risk of MSDs experienced by surgeons can be alleviated.
