As the exam room shifts to an encounter room, the use also shifts to include a diverse range of uses. The encounter room is now being utilized not only for the examination but for waiting and consultations as well. Currently, exam rooms provide one light setting and do not accommodate for the needs of these multiple settings that are becoming more prominent.
HeaLit is a lighting system that automatically adjusts the lights in an encounter/exam room to the appropriate settings based on the comfort needs of the patient and the task performed by the clinician. Clinicians and patients can easily adjust the lights with the press of a button or the turn of a knob.
