Enova Illumination Launches New LED Light for Loupes and Face Shields

November 30, 2020

First wearable neckband battery pairs wirelessly with clip-on LED light for convenient, long-lasting illumination and comfort for dental staff.

The new AxisTM LED Light with ActivTM Battery System from Enova Illumination is described as the first LED light solution to pair a clip-on magnetic light with a wearable neckband battery for improved comfort and visualization during dental, oral and maxillofacial, and cosmetic facial procedures.

The Axis clip-on magnetic LED light offers 30,000 lux illuminance for more than 5 hours of working time. The Axis light delivers bright, uniform illuminance filling the entire viewing field without shadowing or glare. When used with 2.5x magnification at a working distance of 14 inches, the Axis light illuminates a uniform four-inch spot field. Made of lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum, the LED light is built for durability, withstanding frequent cleaning and disinfecting procedures.

Scott Green, Executive Vice President, Enova Illumination, says ergonomics was the primary driving force behind the company’s new light and battery system. The design gives clinicians a reliable, long-lasting LED lighting option without the strain of added head weight or the hassle of cables and belt packs.

The Activ battery integrates Enova's long-life battery technology into a comfortable, wearable design that rests around the neck, eliminating head weight and strain. This neckband battery is equipped with touch technology that allows the user to easily control three brightness settings.

This lightweight and modern solution is ideal for current PPE recommendations. Practitioners can adjust the light underneath a disposable gown and without removing disposable gloves. A lightweight capacitive touch button activates the light and adjusts the brightness. The magnetic attachment is designed to be affixed on most face shields and can be directly mounted to most loupes. Attaching the magnet coaxially, down between the eyes, on face shields minimizes shadows and allows for better viewing of the procedure area.

The Axis LED Light with Activ Battery System is available in four color-coordinated options: blue, pink, green, silver and black.
