Unica Surgical light by Fabio Rezzonico

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Unica

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Surgical light

INSPIRATION:
UNICA is the upshot of the engineering imagination of a close-knit team of physicists, engineers and surgeons with the aim of shedding light on the surgical field and suppressing all forms of direct and indirect glare.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Aim of the project is to create a lamp which fits surgery needs. Glare-free light creates visual relaxation, reduces fatigue and increases alertness. The quality of artificial lighting is therefore of prime importance for the surgeon and the medical staff. The light must be free of direct and indirect glare, have an excellent shadowless factor and not create coloured-shadow effects. UNICA is characterised by simple and elegant lines which well fit in the aseptic surgery room: there are not redundant elements which can distract the surgeon during operations. The sterilizable handle is equipped with a capacitive system for light adjustment, operated by the surgeon in the sterile area. A longitudinal guide on the handle helps the surgeon identify sensor allocation without losing sight of the work area.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
UNICA is the result of a sophisticated design which combines excellent lighting features with exceptional mechanical characteristics for extra soft movement. The careful choice of materials, featuring high structural value as well as top quality, together with the coded assembly of the different construction phases, ends with meticulous thermal, optical, functional and safety testing to make UNICA totally reliable. The entire aluminium lamp body optimizes the LED thermal management and luminous efficacy, so as to maintain constant illuminance for the whole time the device is on without the aid of electronic processes.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The LED light beams are conveyed into an aspherical lens and projected on the first elliptical segmented mirror, which in turn reflect them onto the second mirror with smooth surface and convey them into the surgical field. The latter reflection passes through the screen made with a roughness index such as to stratify and collimate the light beam. The large light emission area and the circular shape of the interruption-free mirrors produce a shadowless effect. The two continuous double-reflection circular modules light with different focal distances, to optimize the shadowless effect, ensure an ample light depth and maintain constant lighting. The cupola is thin and perfectly balanced to ensure easy and stable adjustment and easy cleaning. In the aluminium cupola and in the protective screen an ergonomic round grip is obtained to hold and move the lamp. In the upper part of the cupola, a courtesy light is fitted; a silicone gasket protects the LED crown which, when lit, creates a soft light effect.
