New mobile operating room (OR) lights can be adjusted in height depending on the situation in the OR and the size of the surgeon.

The Polaris 100 and Polaris 200 mobile and height adjustable OR lights can be used (in addition to ceiling-mounted) when the surgeon needs an additional light source for more complicated surgeries. In transport position, the light has a height of approximately 1.85 meters, so that clinical staff can easily push it through standard doors. In its operating position, the physician has a working height of up to 2.17 meters under the light body at the operation site or in the treatment room.

In the case of several adjacent treatment areas, such as in emergency rooms (ERs), the physician can move the Polaris 100 or Polaris 200 between the treatment areas and use it on site as a single light for minor surgeries. The Polaris 100 features 48 light emitting diodes (LEDs) with an output range of 40,000–120,000 lux. The Polaris 200 has an additional 18 LEDs for a total of 66, for a maximum output of 160,000 lux. A built-in battery allows for mains-independent operation for at least three hours at full light intensity. A visual and acoustic warning informs the OR team when the battery charge falls below 25%.

The classic round design includes integrated handles for nonsterile personnel and touch panel controls for easy handling and operation. Sterile personnel can also position the Polaris 100/200 easily by using the central sterile handle. The smooth, seamless casing makes cleaning quick and simple, while its lightweight construction ensures practically effortless positioning. The Polaris 100 and Polaris 200 are products of Dräger (Lübeck, Germany).
