Research in healthcare settings has shown that good acoustics contribute to lower blood pressure, less need for pain medication and the well-being of patients and residents. In hospitals, acoustics play an indispensable role in the healing process. A good, uninterrupted night's sleep is crucial in the recovery of patients. However, noise can be a major sleep disruptor. Other patients, nurses, as well as the sounds of typical hospital noises such as ringing telephones, heart monitor beeps and respirators can keep a patient awake from sleep. In addition, floors and walls in hospitals are often hard and smooth from a hygiene point of view, and thus amplify all these sound impulses.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that for optimal recovery, the background noise level in a patient room may not exceed 35 decibels. This standard is achieved in only a few hospitals. ATIS international can think along with you for the best possible solution, also with our hygienic insulation products.
