  • Patent number: 11506365
    Abstract: An illuminator enables the selection of different color temperatures for different medical, dental or surgical procedures. A first circuit board is moveable with respect to the housing and a second circuit board is fixed within the housing. A plurality of LEDs are mounted on the first circuit board, which receives power from electrical contacts between the two boards. A user control enables a user to move the first circuit board between different positions, wherein, in each position, different LEDs or combinations of the LEDs emit light through the light-transmission window. Movement of the user control may cause the first circuit board to rotate or slide relative the second circuit board. The source of electrical power may be remote or integrated batteries. The rear portion of the housing may include a mount for attaching the illuminator to eyeglass frames, a headband, or other head-mounting apparatus.
