Surgeons oversee procedures using Symposia® Telemedicine system

Brandon Medical’s Symposia® Telemedicine System is an audio-visual communications platform connecting medical professionals to a range of AV resources which can be accessed immediately from any location.

“Telemedicine” refers to the use of telecommunications and information technologies to provide healthcare from a distance. Telemedicine eliminates distance barriers and has transformed medical procedures, teaching and training. The Symposia® telemedicine system, offers medical professionals live interaction with surgeons during procedures. The technology provides a tool for knowledge sharing, including surgical skills best practice, tele-monitoring, medical lectures and communications between multi-disciplinary teams. This provides an efficient system for consultation of live procedures saving clinician’s time and hospital resources.

Professor Griffiths of Coventry & Warwickshire Teaching Hospital’s commented:

Here at UHCW we have benefited from smarter, rapid, and easy working by interlinking users. Symposia® has become a platform for communication between the University and hospital. The uses for training alone include tele-mentoring, tele-monitoring trainees during live surgery, medical lectures, seminars and training rooms, all of which are essential in improving the quality of teaching.”

Brandon Medical’s new Quasar eLite operating theatre light features fully integrated HD-SDI video cameras as part of the Symposia® AV system. Forming the heart of the modern digital operating room, Brandon Medical has paid particular attention to video integration in the design of the new light.  Quasar® eLite is the first OR light which incorporates HD cameras and zoom controls embedded within the slim lamp head. This obviates the need for excessively large handles whilst retaining the camera position directly above the patient. This gives clinicians viewing live procedures or students studying video footage an accurate view of what is happening at the operating table. Quasar® eLite provides a stunningly accurate view of procedures and offers full camera recording capabilities as standard.

Brandon Medical offer a full portfolio of products for the operating theatre and critical care areas including pendant systems, Ultra Clean Ventilation systems, control and power products including IPS and UPS systems and world-class surgical and examination lighting.
