MAQUET Medical Systems USA Launches LED Concealed Lighting System For Labor, Delivery And Recovery Room

WAYNE, N.J., June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Medical Systems USA, a leading provider of surgical and hospital lighting, today announced the launch of its LED (light emitting diodes) Concealed Lighting System for the Labor, Delivery and Recovery (LDR) room. The retractable light sets a new standard in illumination quality, comfort and operational efficiency during the birthing process.

"As a pioneer in concealed lighting systems, we are constantly striving to offer innovative lighting products that will improve physician workflow and patient care," said Raoul Quintero , President and Chief Executive Officer of MAQUET Medical Systems. "This is especially true for the obstetrics market, where hospitals continue to invest in remodeling and building high-tech modern labor delivery recovery facilities. We believe that our LED Concealed Lighting System will allow physicians to more easily perform patient exams in the fast-paced labor and delivery environment, while supporting the comfort and care of the mother and newborn."

About the LED Concealed Lighting System

The retractable LED Concealed Lighting System is designed to provide high-quality lighting and reduce clutter in the labor, delivery and recovery room. The System offers a lighthead that can be effortlessly accessed from the ceiling, easily maneuvered and set in an optimized position for patient exams. Furthermore, the unique lighting technology provides shadow-free, quality illumination, cool color temperature for accurate tissue rendering, and minimal heat output for physician comfort. The System has an aesthetically pleasing back panel comfort light to help create a warm and nurturing environment in the hospital setting and offers a safety mechanism that prevents the ceiling light door from closing if obstructed. 

About Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDR/LDRP) Rooms

Labor, Delivery, Recovery and Postpartum (LDR/LDRP) rooms provide a family-centric, relaxed atmosphere during the birthing process while offering the highest standard of care for mothers and newborns. Research has shown that combined LDR/LDRP units may work well in high-volume obstetrical services and potentially offer diverse clinical expertise to patients and increased flexibility to hospital administrators in managing costs.[*]   

The U.S. Census Bureau anticipates that after a long decline, U.S. birth rates will climb significantly over the next 15 years. To meet this demand and compete in the marketplace, hospitals have committed millions of dollars to the development of LDR/LDRP rooms, as they are believed to help hospitals build market share, increase efficiency and attract a better payer mix and staff.


MAQUET, a trusted partner for hospitals and physicians for over 175 years, is the global leader in providing medical systems that meet the needs of the most medically challenging patients, while exceeding the expectations of the hospital teams that care for them. MAQUET designs, develops and distributes innovative therapy solutions and infrastructure capabilities for high-acuity areas within the hospital including the operating room (OR), hybrid OR/cath lab and intensive care unit (ICU) as well as intra and inter hospital patient transport.

Headquartered in Rastatt, Germany, MAQUET is the largest subsidiary of the publicly listed Getinge Group AB of Sweden. MAQUET generated nearly 1.4 billion Euros in 2011, representing more than half of the Getinge Group's annual revenue of 2.4 billion Euros. MAQUET has 6,000 employees in 50 international sales and service organizations, as well as a network of more than 280 sales representatives. For more information please visit
