June Medical announced today that it launched the Galaxy II LUX self-retaining ring retractor with light for clearer views of surgical sites.
Galaxy II LUX combines June Medical’s Galaxy II retractor with Vivo Surgical’s Klaro light designed for mounting on the retractor via a purpose-designed clip, allowing for better access and a clearer view of the surgical site while eliminating the disadvantages of overhead lighting or personal head torches, according to a news release.
June Medical’s retractor features unique cam locks to allow for single-handed adjustment on the frame, along with multiple frames and hooks for a range of procedures, including ENT, colorectal, orthopedic, gynecological, among others.
The lighting tip offers four settings to match the needs of different operations at a temperature 38 °C. The system includes a 650 mm cable, a 4.6 mm diameter and a flexible structure for effortless positioning during surgery, plus around 340° of illumination inside deep and narrow wounds.
“We are thrilled to be working with Vivo Medical to offer this gamechanger,” June Medical CEO Angela Spang said in the release. “This kit helps to overcome a number of pain points, ensuring uniform site illumination from within an open surgical cavity, reducing the need for light repositioning and eliminating the risk of patient infection from contaminated light handles, as well as improving ergonomics for surgeons. We’re also excited about the opportunities this kit will bring for our charity work in countries where surgical lighting is sometimes a smartphone torch!”
