Dental HALO Light Edi

  • dental operating light Edi

    Optimal lighting
    EDI is a dental light with a state-of-the-art design that perfectly illuminates the oral cavity. It is equipped with accessories and versions that make it a complete lighting system, capable to satisfy the dentist’s requirements. The halogen light source is reflected onto a rear double parabolic glass that guarantees a light without shadows and a well defined luminous spot: 180 x 60 mm.
    Ergonomics and comfort
    EDI has articulated arms that allow an easy light orientation with smooth and precise movements. The first arm of 75 cm (90 cm upon request), with an overlapped coupling and its small arch turned down to prolong the extension, allows wide movements. The light quality is excellent as color temperature, uniformity of the lighted area and intensity. The intensity is adjusted by a cursor placed in the rear part of the headlight. In order to turn it on you should press the switch placed on the headlight or through the proximity sensor. To adjust the temperature of the external parts, EDI is equipped with a silent and effective forced ventilation system. Its design combines ergonomics with easiness of intervention, with smooth and rounded surfaces for an easy cleaning. The selection of materials and components and the attention to details assure a perfect integration with any kind of dental unit. The handles have a quick fixing system for an easy and direct assembly after sterilization.
    Practicality and flexibility
    EDI can be easily positioned in any situation, thanks to its arms with an overlapped coupling. EDI can be mounted on any type of dental unit, on the wall, on the ceiling, on the floor and on a pole, thanks to a complete application line for dental lights created by Faro

  • Cleaning the parabolas

    Clean using cotton wool and ethyl alcohol or Perflex.
    Do not use detergents containing surfactants or water-repellents that could leave marks.
    Slight marks do not compromise the quality of the light.
    Sterilizing the handles

    The handles can sterilized on a standard cycle 121°/134° for a maximum of two hundred (200) sterilizations.
    Other parts of the light

    Clean with a soft cloth.
    It is strictly forbidden to use abrasive substances, detergents with trichloroethylene, benzene, oil of turpentine or similar on any parts of the light
  • Reproducing the natural light

    The human body is designed to live in nature, according to rhythms dictated by the sunlight.
    Due to the natural production of serotonin (during daylight hours) and melatonin (during hours of darkness), our biorhythm makes us more productive during the day and more inclined to sleep at night. Even the seasons affect our biorhythms: in summer the most amount of light makes us more active, while in winter the lack of light makes us more tired and in need of rest. Working life, however, compels us to take a different rhythm, regulated by the requirements of productivity; the result of this “forced” adaptation is a source of considerable stress to our body. The most effective way to minimize this kind of stress is to make sure that the light received by our eyes in the work environment is as similar as possible (in quantity and in quality) to sunlight.

    The overloading of the visual system is also harmful to the health of the eye. It manifests as various symptoms such as burning, tearing, dry eye, a feeling of foreign body, eye pain or discomfort, or even blurred vision or ghosting. These disorders, in the long run, can cause diseases procuring a real lack of concentration, headaches over orbital and temples, redness, burning, or discomfort in the eyes even already in the morning when you wake up. A continuous exposure to a wrong light source can lead one to a set of direct or reflected pathologies. On the contrary, a good quality and flexibility of the vision is a prerequisite for your general welfare.
    The collateral effects of a wrong lighting
    Modification of the biorhytm
    Exposure to a source of
    light which is ineffective 
    nduces a sense of fatigue
    even in the hours usually dedicated to work.

    Stress, tensions, headaches
    Too much light or too much direct light causes
    stress, nervous tensions
    and headaches

    Eye diseases
    The visual weariness, as well
    as generating a risk of serious
    eye diseases, can have an
    indirect effect on mood and perception of good health and emotional well-being.
    The continuous use of a
    wrong light source may
    prompt physicians to assume unnatural postures, causing
    pain and pathologies of the
    musculoskeletal system.

    And the patient?

    The operating light is the element that is constantly in front of the eyes of the patient. A wrong light is a source of stress for him, who can be “blinded” at every movement of the lamp. This stress is inevitably reflected on the perception which he has of the doctor’s cabinet he is in. More relaxed is a patient, more willing to receive treatment and, last but not least, to come back in the dental cabinet.
    Quality of light
    When choosing a dental lamp you must consider some features for the determination of its quality of light. It is essential that artificial light is able to faithfully reproduce the colours of the materials and tissues which may appear different, depending on the colour temperature of the light source and the relative colour rendering. This is of fundamental importance for the success of the job. The colour temperature is measured in Kelvin (K): a lower value corresponds to a warmer colour tone which tends toward red.
    A higher colour temperature means cooler shades (green and blue). The reference “neutral” value of the colour temperature, “the pure white”, corresponds to the midday sun on a beautiful day and is about 5,000 K.

    Even the sunlight affects colour perception: at changing of the seasons or hours of the day we see different colours. Therefore it is important to have a light source that, at any time, is able to give
    accurate informations to the doctor. All FARO lamps offer intensity adjustment so that the visual function can capture the tiny details of the operative field with minimal effort, constantly keeping the colour temperature at 5,000 K.
    How much light?
    The amount of light required to illuminate the operative field depends on several factors. Proper lighting must have characteristics of intensity, distribution and quality appropriate to the visual function of the physician, in order to capture the details of the operative field. Depending on the age of the physician, for example, it will require a higher or lower quantity of light. In addition, the smaller details will be observed, the greater the intensity of light is required. A good source of illumination must be adjustable, without losing its characteristics of colour temperature and illumination uniformity.
    Managing the contrast

    To avoid visual stress should be avoided excessive contrast between the working area and the surrounding environment; the continue need of adaptation to any movement of the eyes leads to an inevitable eye fatigue. It is therefore a good rule that the lighting of the workplace is higher than the one in the room, and, for a more comfortable visual activity, the light source should not be addressed directly to the eye: it must be disposed or behind or side or above the observer.
    The glare
    The glare, not only annoying, is potentially damaging because it can cause serious eye lesions on the retina. These lesions can be determined by a thermal effect (coagulation of proteins in the retina) or by a photochemical effect (chemical reactions, without raising the temperature). Especially children are exposed to this risk, as they are subject to the development of their natural defenses. The reflected light optical project FARO provides a defined spot and does not produce heat to minimize this phenomenon. In the case of patients with diagnosed eye diseases is also possible to obtain an overall screen through.
