Acoustic solutions for healthcare

There are three factors you need to consider in order to achieve a good sound environment in healthcare premises:

Activity Based Acoustic Design

The activity in a treatment room is different from that in a shared space, a corridor or a waiting area. Therefore every space within healtchare premises needs to be designed based on:

  • the activity taking place
  • the people involved and
  • the qualities of the space itself

This is what we at Ecophon call Activity Based Acoustic Design

1Make room for recovery – keep the sound levels down

2Secure that the rooms support communication – focus on speech clarity

3Make sure that the acoustic products fulfill the hygienic demands

If you achieve this, there will be many benefits for both patients and staff:

  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Reduced intake of pain medication
  • Improved communication
  • Lowered stress levels
  • Improved patient safety
  • Enhanced staff wellbeing, performance and job satisfaction
