Usability issues have been observed in luminaire repositioning, during surgical operations. These difficulties were confirmed to be related to the kinematics of the translational subsystem of the suspension mechanism, specifically the possibility of singularity. Due to which the required force for luminaire repositioning depends on the spatial...

Ergonomic problems of surgical lighting systems have been indicated by surgeons; however, the underlying causes are not clear. The aim of this dissertation is to assess the problems in detail, and subsequently clarify the underlying causes. In the first stage of the research, the observation method was used to quantify the luminaire use during...
