Specifically designed for minimally invasive surgeries & deep cavity visualization, the bifurcated design eliminates troublesome shadowing and illuminates the cavity for better access and better vision. Flexible fiber optics deliver bright yet diffuse light to reduce glare.
LUX Connect is designed to be used together with award winning Galaxy II LUX, but can also be used on its own; the leads will bend to your desired position and stay there until you decide to move them as your surgery progresses.

Did you know?
Every 7.5 minutes there’s a pause in surgery to reposition the overhead light¹…
That means that in 1 hour of surgery repositioning will occur 8 times.
1 hour of surgery costs approximately £1200 ². 1 hour (60 minutes)= £1200 >> 1 minute= £208x £20 = £160
If it takes around 1 minute to reposition each time, the total cost of repositioning during that 1 hour of surgery will be £160.
LUX Connect will pay for itself by reducing OR time in addition to making surgery safer.
