Electrical safety and high-quality medical technology now from a single source

Bender now offers operating theatre lights, operating tables and pendants from finnish manufacturer Merivaara in Germany.

The Grünberg-based company Bender, specialising in electrical safety, will in future offer medical technology from the Finnish manufacturer Merivaara. Bender expands its hospital portfolio as Merivaara's exclusive sales partner for Germany in order to be able to offer its customers “everything from a single source”: innovative technology for electrical safety in hospitals as well as high-quality medical technology products for operating theatres and intensive care units that meet the highest standards.

The product range includes the Q-Flow™ series operating theatre lights, which won the Red Dot Award 2017 and Fennia Prize 2017. They stand out not only because of their sophisticated design, but also because of the best colour rendering, dynamic shadow reduction (Dynamic Obstacle Compensation DOC™), as well as a particularly low-turbulence airflow in the operating theatre area. A mobile operating light is offered for use in clinicians' practices, for example. The Merivaara products distributed by Bender include Smarter Practico and Grand Promerix operating tables and a wide range of wall-mounted and ceiling pendants that ensure a safer and more ergonomic working environment in operating theatres, anaesthesia rooms or intensive care units. These pendants can be used for a wide range of applications, whether for monitor mounting or for providing electrical sockets, data outlets or medical gases.

“Bender and Merivaara are a good fit as partners, both offering high-quality products and solutions for hospitals,” says René Bülow, Bender Vice President and Head of the Hospital Solutions Business Unit. “Most importantly, Bender will not only offer its customers innovative technology for electrical safety in hospitals in the future, but also quality products in the field of medical technology that, like Bender safety solutions, meet the highest standards. That's why we're excited about this collaboration and the possibilities for the future.”


Merivaara is an award-winning Finnish medical technology company. It offers high-quality operating theatre lights, operating tables and wall-mounted and ceiling pendants for hospitals. The company was founded in 1901 and today has 70 employees in 4 countries. It is based in Lahti.
