About BFW

BFW, Inc. was founded by Leon Cooper in 1971 in Lexington Kentucky. In 2010 BFW introduces the first major change to lamp technology powering the fibre 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 of LED technology, which BFW adopted, as it retained the intensity yet lowered the heat output. 

In 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.


BFW is dedicated to providing comfort and illumination to the surgeon/physician as well as creating an opportunity to advance teamwork and education by sharing the surgeon’s-eye-view of the procedure. 


Device Technologies is proud to partner with BFW to bring surgical lighting solutions to the Australian and Asian markets.
