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.
Hospitals of the future focus on lower noise levels. Not only does a good auditive envi- ronment facilitate recovery, it also leads to better sleep patterns and higher levels of patient and staff well-being.
Let SoundEar II® help you save money by reducing patient hospitalisation periods and staff sickness absence.
SoundEar II® is mounted onto a wall, showing the noise level in an easy to understand manner, and it omits a warning whenever the noise level gets too high. SoundEar II® is a good system to utilise in particularly sensitive hospitals areas:
rooms with several beds
SoundEar II® has been specifically developed for use in hospitals and is approved in accordance with IEC 60601-1 (medical electrical equipment).
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.
SoundEar® measures sound and Log II stores the information. Using the software that comes with Log II, you can see measurements carried out over a period of up to four weeks at a time on a ready-to-print graph.
