Overview

The Giraffe Spot PT Lite Phototherapy System provides intensive phototherapy for infants in incubators, warmers, and bassinets.   

We designed the Giraffe Spot PT Lite to be:   

Effective
It provides high intensity, natural white light with a long-lasting metal halide bulb. These bulbs are cooler than traditional spotlights, which helps reduce the risk of thermal stress on your patients.

Adaptable
You can use it both in the NICU and in the well baby nursery.

Portable
The compact, lightweight box allows you to easily move it from place to place.

Precise
You can position the flexible light pipe to focus the light exactly where you need it.

Benefits

The Giraffe Spot PT Lite meets the 2004 AAP guidelines for high intensity phototherapy and also offers: 

  • Light that can be focused where it’s needed
    • A flexible lightpipe lets you focus the therapeutic light just where it needs to be, which minimizes exposure to infants in neighboring beds.
  • Therapeutic light without excessive heat
    • The bulb is in the box – not near baby – minimizing heat generation around your patient.
  • A clear view
    • The design allows you and your patient’s family an unobstructed view of baby.
  • Soothing white light
    • The white light is more therapeutic for your patient and friendlier for you than traditional blue lights are.
  • Flexibility
    • You can choose from bed-mounted units that help you conserve space in all care areas or roll stand-mounted units that provide added flexibility.
