Philips Launches A Wall of Light to Lessen the Tension

Electronics launched an LED-based wall of light designed with a holistic approach in order to lessen the tension, anxiety and stress young patients typically feel when entering a hospital environment.

The Imagination Light Canvas is a light wall, 3 metres by 1.5 metres, and is simply operated via a standard PC giving staff the flexibility to select from a menu of interactive and static scenes.

Deliberately positioned opposite the main entrance to the renal unit’s reception area, it is the first thing that visitors see on arrival, thereby creating immediate distraction, interest and curiosity.

“Going into hospital for treatment brings out worry and concern in most people never mind in the young children we deal with,” said Derick Harrison, capital project manager at Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

“Therefore, we wanted to create an environment which is uplifting, far removed from the clinical, sterile atmosphere usually associated with ,” he added.

Children cannot help but be drawn to it engaging with the vibrant, ever changing shapes as they dart and dance across the screen.

Eye-catching for youngsters coming to the unit for the first time, the Light Canvas also offers welcome entertainment for patients have to be kept on the ward for any length of time.

The programme options even include the potential to create simple games so that two or more children can play together.  Kidney disease is incredibly disruptive to daily life and visits to hospital can seem endless, therefore, having the opportunity to play and have fun is a welcome relief for children, and of course their concerned parents.
