Noise measurement for open-plan offices and call-centres.
SoundEarV is a little noisemeter that measures the sound level in the area around your desk. When the noise around your desk becomes too loud, a pop-up warning appears on the screen. Attach the noisemeter to the side of the computer screen and connect to the USB-port. Pre-set your own noise limit at which the pop-up warning should appear.
Many hospital patients complain about too much noise. This includes noise from medical equipment, staff and visitors, closing doors etc. Research has shown that noise levels above 50 dB(A) delay recovery and rehabilitation periods, thereby causing patients to stay for an unnecessary, longer period of time due to bad acoustic and sound environments within modern hospitals.
