Kirlin has been a leader in Medical Lighting for over 50 years. In the 1970s, famed heart surgeon and medical pioneer Dr. Michael DeBakey collaborated with Kirlin to develop the first recessed motorized patient exam light, controlled by the practitioner via a handheld joy-stick. Today, that technology has evolved into the INFRALED® series, a system of wirelessly controlled LED luminaires trusted around the world in Labor & Delivery, ICU, patient rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, and many other critical care departments.

In the 1980, Kirlin leveraged their expertise in all-aluminum construction to develop incandescent lighting for “Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging” applications. As MRI machines became more common, and as they grew in power to 7 Tesla, Kirlin has remained on the forefront of non-ferromagnetic MRI lighting. Today, Kirlin’s SmartLED™ MRI Lighting System is the market-leading turn-key solution in this space, ensuring accurate scans and quality light.

Kirlin’s proven track record in healthcare lighting has not gone unnoticed. As of early 2020, Kirlin products can be found in 19 of the U.S. News & World Report’s top 20 “Honor Roll” hospitals from coast to coast. “We are gratified by the demand for our products from the best of the healthcare community, and we are grateful that our products are instrumental in the advancement of medical care that prevents illness and suffering and saves lives,” said Jana Kirlin Brownell, president and chief executive of Kirlin.

Based in Detroit, MI for the past century, Kirlin has 125 years of experience designing, manufacturing and assembling lighting systems of superior quality and performance. Today, Kirlin is a global leader renowned for specialized lighting systems for all medical applications.
