Wavien Inc. of Valencia has introduced a LED based medical illumination platform based on its proprietary Recycling Light Technology. RLT technology, which is implemented using a single RLT reflector, significantly increases the brightness available to fiber optic bundles used frequently in surgical operating systems. Wavien is actively looking to license this enabling technology for medical illumination applications.
Impressive improvements in brightness have been achieved for both commonly used 5.0 mm and 3.5 mm fiber bundles using the RLT reflectors with gains of 40% for the 5.0 mm and 60% for the 3.5mm fiber bundles. The RLT technology will provide even higher improvements for smaller fiber bundle system, e.g. arthroscopes with 1.0 mm fiber bundles. The RLT technology is very flexible and can be optimized for all types of devices and fiber bundle sizes fitting all existing and new illumination systems.
“Wavien’s RLT technology increases light output over 2 times for many applications with a compact, low-cost RLT reflector. The system recycles high angle light generated by LEDs, which would otherwise be wasted in conventional illumination systems, and converts it into useable output as a brighter beam. The usable LED light output is significantly boosted by the RLT reflector with no additional LED input power required and no change in LED lifetime,” stated Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien Inc., who is also the inventor of the RLT technology. “With the ability to improve outputs using smaller fiber bundles, an entire new line of micro instruments is now made possible with RLT technology.”
