Medical & Surgical Lighting Pty Ltd

Comments Off on Medical & Surgical Lighting Pty Ltd

In the mid-1850s, operating rooms were built towards the southeast with windows in the ceiling to benefit from natural sunlight as much as possible.

The biggest problem was the dependence of lighting and whether a procedure could be done on the time of day and weather conditions. Furthermore, a doctor, nurse or medical equipment easily blocked the light. The use of mirrors on the four corners of the ceiling to reflect sunlight towards the operating table only slightly alleviated these problems.

We have come a long way since these dark days. MSL has the perfect solution to deliver the correct lighting requirements, whether it be for examination, procedure or surgical operations.
