In order to create a space where people can perform a certain activity to the best of their ability, Ecophon has developed Activity Based Acoustic Design.
Activity Based Acoustic Design is a method for acoustically designing indoor environments.
Practically this means defining the needs from three perspectives – activity, people and space.
The solutions are then achieved using a combination of high-quality acoustic elements.
Healthcare facilities (hospitals, elderly care premises, outpatient clinics, mental health premises) are a lot different than say an office building. The reason is that there are two main groups of people in healthcare: care givers and care recipients. These two groups have different activities to perform that require different acoustic solutions. They also have really different reasons to be in the buildings – one group is in their comfort zone (being at work) and the other one can be in a crisis situation (being sick away from home).
To help you create the best possible sound environment within healthcare, we have put together a list of questions regarding activity, people and space. Once you have considered these, you are ready to choose an acoustic solution that will suit your specific acoustic needs.
