Luminance Integrated Technologies™ is a medical device development, manufacturing and sales company innovating surgical illumination products for the surgical market. Through the application of protected platform technology, LIT™ has launched its first innovation, the ONE HeadLIghT™ system to improve the efficiency and outcome of surgical procedures.
The ONE HeadLIghT device is a custom, high-intensity, head-mounted illumination system. It provides a superior light quality with an unprecedented level of comfort and freedom of movement. The surgical headlight technology is a disruptive, market-expanding product designed to meet both current and future surgical market demand, for untethered headlight systems.
LIghT Surgical Company Background
LIT was originally a regional surgical device distributor that filed for its first illumination patent in 2006. In 2007, with a business plan and well devised “back of the napkin” concept (backed by some new science) LIT converted to a corporation upon the close of its first funding, which took the form of convertible notes. The proceeds from LIT‘s first funding activities were principally used to develop proof of concept for a new way of delivering light to a surgical field. LIghT Surgical™ subsequently raised additional funds through the issuance of Series A Preferred Stock, the proceeds of which were principally used to move prototype to commercial product. In early 2009, “The ONE HeadLIghT ” system was launched domestically.
Although LIT primarily serves the medical/surgical field, our product platform is certainly not limited to those settings. Our technology also has applications in numerous other industries where our head-mounted illumination systems can provide the user with unparalleled mobility and wider visual spectrum possibilities.
LIT delivers a proprietary, patent-protected, head-mounted illumination system that surpasses the current industry standard to meet the critical needs of surgeons throughout the world.
LIghT Surgical addresses the market with an extensive IP portfolio and standards-breaking innovations. Our success comes from within. Our management philosophy is based on trust, optimism, and respect for all stakeholders. An optimal working environment depends on these cornerstones: vision, ethics and realism.
LIghT Surgical aims to be the true world leader in providing high-intensity combined-light illumination. We set standards of excellence for others to follow.
Trusting and respecting people and their ability to grow is the basis for the ethical standards of LIghT Surgical.
LIghT Surgical fosters an environment that allows all employees to excel at their jobs. We must fully understand our business, market, products and competition, as well as our own organization and business processes. Management must have a broad perspective, remain aware of detail, and strive to increase value for all stakeholders.
Luminance Integrated Technologies or “LIT ” (pronounced ‘LIghT‘) was founded to address several problems that existed with the illumination technology used in operating rooms.
With other headlamp technologies, critical needs – such as mobility, weight, comfort, heat dissipation, light intensity, reliability, and sterility – were not being addressed.
After assessing the feasibility of several solutions, LIghT Surgical collaborated with some of the world’s top optical scientists, design engineers and surgeons to develop the technology platform that is reflected in our product today.
The LIghT Surgical crew continues to be actively involved in the development and progress of its innovative headlight system. From expanded surgical uses to emerging marketplaces, the LIghT Surgical team is dedicated to providing the best illumination solutions for a variety of applications around the globe.
