Importance of illumination in the medical environment

Researchers worldwide have for several years been attempting to quantify the benefits of lighting when it comes to the medical environment. A report for the European Commission has identified a range of potential human-health issues arising from LED lighting. The relationship between light and the levels of wellbeing of the users was expanded when a third photoreceptor, in addition to rods and cones, was identified in the human eye, early in the new century. These additional light-sensitive photoreceptors in the retinal ganglion cell layer are directly sensitive to light and primarily responsible for mediating these responses.

Here in FiberOpticalAssembly we care about all that such as:

Luminous Efficacy

Luminous efficacy refers to the capacity of the source to produce visible light output efficiently and is measured in lumens per watt.

Colour Rendition

This refers to the ability of the source to illuminate surfaces such that their colours appear as natural as possible. 

Clinical Lighting Practice

The lighting of hospitals and other healthcare facilities is guided by the standards or codes of practice adopted for use in different countries. These are selected as the main focus for this discussion since they represent the distilled wisdom of groups of expert practitioners in the countries concerned.

Mixed LED Lighting

We have investigated white-light mixtures using a range of seven colored-LED sources. The mixtures will use four LEDs at a time. Fewer than 4 lead to inferior color properties, while more than 4 are assessed as too cumbersome for effective control.
