Wellness and Transformation
Lighting is an amazing resource that can have a truly significant impact on people, especially when it is effectively incorporated into healthcare facilities such as hospitals and healthcare centers.
This integration can make all the difference in the healing environment and play a key role in the well-being of patients, their families and medical specialists alike.
The effects of light
It is very important to know to what extent light can influence our well-being.
Worldwide research has revealed that there is a clear and positive relationship between patients’ exposure to natural light during the day and the adaptation of artificial lighting levels.
Given that we spend so much of our time indoors, optimizing lighting to create a sense of spaciousness and connection to the outside environment can be extremely beneficial for the people present. This is particularly relevant in hospital facilities, such as intensive care wards, where adequate exposure to light can strengthen the biological rhythm of patients, contributing positively to their well-being.
That is why innovative technologies have emerged to support lighting in these areas, such as LED lights, seeking to improve healing spaces and support patient comfort and staff efficiency, adapting to individual needs seamlessly.
At Actilum we create and develop tailor-made products and applications to suit the need of each project.
We offer our lighting laboratory to create the most appropriate light according to each client’s requirements.
LED lighting at the service of patients and medical staff
The use of LED technology in soft and adjustable tones in hospital lighting contributes to establishing a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. This approach not only helps the patient’s condition, but also benefits medical professionals.
Creating relaxing spaces with good lighting
Incorporating detailed images and good lighting, which provide a sense of calm in medical examination rooms, can help divert the patient’s attention away from distress and anxiety. For a sense of calm, we can incorporate a wide range of natural concepts such as landscapes, warm colours, animals, the sea and mountains.
When image and light are perfectly combined
Sometimes, certain medical examinations are carried out in enclosed spaces that lack natural light, such as MRI rooms, which are often cold and lacking in decoration.
Visual stimuli from different light sources can be of great help in alleviating the feeling of restlessness and confinement. The distracting effect can help patients to experience the transition to a medical examination in a more relaxed way.
LED ceiling lights
LED ceiling lights with relaxing backlit images create a “window” effect and provide a great lighting solution to accompany this experience with great results.
The use of distraction methods, such as LED lighting and decoration, in health and wellness environments, such as hospital wards, is increasing. They are implemented in different environments as they play a key role in the physical and mental state of the people involved.
In addition, many lighting modules offer high light levels, providing optimal conditions for medical professionals to assess patients. Intelligent control systems are employed that allow automatic management of the lighting, adapting to the dynamic light rhythm.
These technologies represent a real and effective solution for patient rooms, corridors, common areas of hospitals, waiting rooms, facilities with MRI equipment, chemotherapy and radiotherapy rooms with medical equipment, psychiatric areas with long periods of treatment, and spaces where family and staff gather.
At Actilum we offer personalised advice. Our research and development (R&D) team is always ready to work with each project.
The right lighting is not only light; it is well-being, comfort and recovery.
