Congratulations to Dr. Shanthaiah. Medical equipment companies are charging ridiculously huge amount for their LED head lights. LEDs don’t cost much. It can be mass produced at a much lower price, and has the potential to replace conventional or fiber optic head lights. Since LEDs are lighter, brighter, cooler, energy efficient and probably, cheaper, I hope, some company will come out with some cool ENT gadgets soon! Thanks a lot to Dr. Shanthaiah and his team for making an effort and letting us know about their LED head light.

Good effort but not particularly impressive considering the fact that LEd does not require external supply and its been made bulkier.using a single super brigth bulb of 2500 mcd the whole thing can be made in much more compact and cheaper way. i am using one led headlight which i picked up for 7 dollars (rs 350)
Will show u that theres whole range of cheap leds available. i am using one such for septo, tonsils, trachy and everything possible.
what would make a difference is to make hand held led fibroptic light source with strobe function. we are testing one such make and it is cheaper than rs 1000.
