Doctors at the German Heart Institute understand the importance of light. When extensive renovation was carried out at the facility, they were looking for a modern, controllable lighting concept that could assist patient recovery. Not only would this make it easier for staff to give treatment, but innovative lighting has been shown to have a positive effect on stress, sleep patterns and hormone release.
Philips HealWell was immediately prescribed. This patient room lighting system has been designed to support natural sleep rhythms by mimicking the natural light patterns outside. When patients enter hospital, they often have trouble sleeping, which can have a negative effect upon their health and mood. Not only does HealWell help to keep their sleep patterns normal, but light hues can be changed at the patient’s command, and the system complies with all hygiene regulations.
In the patient recreation room, additional comfort comes from luminous textiles. They deliver ever-changing ambience that soothes and relaxes, while also softening sound. The new lighting systems are helping the Institute to provide better care for patients, and a better working atmosphere for staff. Just what the doctor ordered.
Each patient is able to control the light in their room via remote control, using preferred colored settings. This gives them a greater sense of control, and an increased sense of wellbeing.
