Type of phototherapy:
The MediLED Light offers flexibility in positioning and use.
The MediLED Phototherapy system is an innovative phototherapy light, incorporating a state-of-the-art blue LED light source for the treatment of newborn jaundice.
Most Effective Degradation of Bilirubin1
Meets AAP guidelines for intensive phototherapy2
Blue LEDs emit most of their light in the 450-480 nm spectrum. This range corresponds to the peak absorption wavelength (458 nm) at which bilirubin is broken down1
Blue LEDs do not emit light in the ultraviolet (UV) range - reducing the potential risk of skin damage
Blue LEDs do not emit light in the infrared radiation (IR) range - reducing the potential risk of fluid loss
The MediLED Light can be used with just blue light, a combination of blue and white or just white light.
