Natural lighting strengthens, and accelerates, the process of healing. Being exposed to sunlight improves mood, reduces stress facilitating relaxation in both the patient and the staff involved in the care process. Shorter hospital stays also ensure cost savings for patients and for the national and private health systems.
CoeLux® ’s science and technology innovation totally transform the interiors of hospitals, nursing homes or rehabilitation centres, and bring pieces of sky along with the spectrum quality of a sunny day: for the first time the traumatic experience of a hospital stay turns into a parenthesis of life in the open air for those who can not walk in a park.
The Poli-comfort room of the Breast Radiology Department of Mangiagalli (Milan) is part of a general plan to humanize the hospital, increasingly focused on the users and their daily needs. The theme of women and prevention has been put first.
CoeLux® was chosen in the lighting project by DCUBE Swiss at La Tour Hospital, Geneva, Radio-Oncology service. In the department, several CoeLux systems have been installed: in the waiting room, in the hallways, in a bunker room where special medical treatments are given to the patients. In the latter case CoeLux, supported by other integrated lighting systems, brings several psychophysical benefits to the patient as, for example, the reduction of anxiety.
It’s called CoeLux® the technology that Humanitas has chosen to bring into the Radiosurgery department, promoting maximum patient comfort during treatments. CoeLux® enables the exact reproduction of natural light and the image of the sun and sky within closed environments that light could never reach. With CoeLux®, areas absent of natural light become virtual spaces with an infinite dimension of light. This is how CoeLux® has a positive psychological and physiological effect on patients, reducing the anxiety one feels when closed in; underground or in windowless areas.
