BFW Surgical Headlights and Video Camera Systems Address Real Problems in Your Practice. BFW surgical headlights have consistent illumination and brightness across the entire field of view. Reducing or eliminating eye strain during long procedures. The BFW product line is built with easy to clean materials, and most parts can be repaired in-house. This reduces maintenance issues for nurses and biomed engineers, and cuts downtime for headlights in repair. Interchangeable color coded headbands help keep your departments organized. The convenient Sol Wall system stores, protects and charges your portable BFW headlamps (coming soon). BFW offers the industry’s first true coaxial HD 1080p/60 FPS headlight/video camera system.

BFW, Inc. was founded by Leon Cooper in 1971 in Lexington Kentucky
Leon’s daughter, Lynn, joins the company in 1990. Her main goal was to learn the business and to increase international distribution. In 1990 BFW had 3 international distributors; this sales arm has now grown to over 20. Through word of mouth and product quality, the market grew globally.
In 2010 BFW introduces the first major change to lamp technology powering the fiber optic light source in over 20 years with the ChromaLUME, utilizing plasma lamp technology. With technology strongly in the xenon-powered light sources, BFW saw the need to increase lamp life without affecting brightness. This was the stepping stone to the introduction to LED technology, which BFW adopted as it retained the intensity, yet lowered the heat output.
2014 BFW partners with supplier Long Island Technology Group to introduce the Lighthouse Series to the market. BFW’s line of portable and tethered headlights and light sources are now solely powered by LED technology. Robust quality and comfort along with clarity of illumination have been achieved with this line. Also introduced is the Pharos HD Coaxial Headlight/Camera System; improving upon past generations of quality headlight/video systems BFW has offered. Pharos provides a surgeon’s-eye view of the procedure; excellent for teaching and an invaluable aid to the OR team.
Coming in 2019 – the Bay Port Storage Solution – an attractive, functional solution to store headlights and charge multiple batteries in configurations to suit most needs.
