Brandon Medical programme of events
European Healthcare Design 14-18 September 2020
Smart Operating Theatres
Conventional Becomes Smart: The conventional operating theatre has changed already. More flexibility is required, alongside with integration of various surgical equipment which has been driven from the clinical needs of the modern hospital.
The operating theatre has been dramatically changed: Minimally invasive surgery means that more equipment has to be integrated and controlled than before, with complex audio-video solutions required, additional to Medical IT, UPS, gases, specialised carts etc.
Health Estates Managers and Engineers are facing challenges in integrating the new technologies whilst having to build in the project efficiencies such as flexible use of operating theatres, instead of fixed, dedicated specialisms, all the while having to implement compliance such as HTM 06-01 in the UK and other current regulatory and recommendatory requirements, which continuously and rapidly change. The sheer number of variables increases the risk associated with any operating theatre project.
SESSION 17 Designing for critical care and surgery

For over 70 years, Brandon Medical has provided healthcare professionals with reliable, high-quality, and affordable medical equipment packages for operating theatres and critical care. Continuous investment in our products allows us to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers, the healthcare industry and the patients it serves.
We are acknowledged experts in medical lighting, medical power & control systems, medical video, and medical AV systems with unique expertise in providing integrated solutions.
We are one of the leading manufacturers of high tech medical lighting, and our equipment can be found in surgeries, clinics, and hospitals throughout the world supported by an extensive distributor network.
Our UK manufactured operating theatre lamps have near-perfect colour rendition, balanced arm systems for ease of movement, and use HD-LED technology which emits a brilliant cold light to reduce heat generation. We also have a range of mobile operating theatre lights. Specialist surgical and examination lighting systems are available, with unique features designed to suit the field.
In addition to healthcare and hospital lighting technology, we also manufacture operating theatre control panels and design solutions for medical AV systems, medical supply pendants, as well as isolated power systems and uninterruptible power systems.
A ‘SMART’ Move for Healthcare Settings Everywhere
Introducing SMART technology into healthcare settings will increase efficiency and streamline operations. Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) are becoming a prominent feature in hospitals and other built settings, with built-in sensors, data processing, and communication capabilities working together to create a SMART ecosystem that can outsmart traditional digital systems used in operating theatres and other areas of the healthcare estate. Traditional systems have digital components that exist as individual entities, with limited communication for interlocks or basic control. On the other hand, the SMART healthcare platform and SMART-enabled devices create a communication network that allows connected devices to share data locally and with external platforms for analysis, reporting, data logging, and maintenance.Read more
