Green Light for Surgeons Cuts Fatigue

A Danish hospital is experimenting with saturated colour in its operating theatre in a bid to reduce the fatigue of surgeons and nurses and improve visual comfort during critical medical procedures. The keyhole surgery room at the University Hospital in Aarhus features LED panels with both colour-tuning and central downlight consisting of an LED array. Green light is used during keyhole surgery to cut fatigue while cool white light with high colour rendering is used for open surgery.

All scenarios – which are selected using a simple touch panel.
