Shop lighting for your office or procedure room here. Lighting is one of the most important pieces of equipment when it comes to examining and operating on patients. Poor lighting as well as too bright lighting may lower the performance of medical personnel and cause errors. Did you know? Until the late 19th century, hospitals relied mostly on the natural light. Rooms were planned with windows facing the southeast. Naturally, this made examinations and operations limited. Electric light entered medical facilities in the 1880s and it has been evolving ever since. Types of lighting include ceiling-mounted, wall-mounted, and on floor stand. There are three main types of lights used in medical facilities: Incandescent lamps, Fluorescent lamps, and Light emitting diodes (LED). Find exam lights, headlights, loupes, and penlights to help with getting a better view. Find bulbs for your scopes. Browse through bigger sets of lighting as well.
