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).
The relay, that when used together with SoundEarII,can be used to control any hi-fi systems, lights etc. connected to it. SoundBuster can either disconnect or connect the powersupply when the preset noise limit on the SoundEar IIis exceeded.
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.
