The SoundEar II is designed for use in hospitals. Loud noises in this environment can contribute to increased levels of inconvenience and discomfort.
The noise that is reverberating is also from those around the hospital itself. This includes noise from the staff and visitors of the patients, medical equipment and the simple closing of doors etc. Research from around the world has suggested that for noise levels above 50 dB(A) there would be a delay in the rehabilitation periods and the recovery. This thereby, causing patients who are helpless as they are, to stay for an unnecessary, longer period of time due to sound environments that are loud and the bad acoustic within the modern hospital environment.
In the near future the hospitals would be well equipped to a pollution free hospice on lower noise levels. This noiseless environment not only facilitate recovery, it also enhances the patient and staff wellbeing, also regulating and leading to better sleep patterns.
The instrument SoundEar II® ensures that leave and staff sickness absence is nil and also ensuring the patient hospitalization period is reduced and thereby saving on the exorbitant expense for the patient. Reducing immensely the noise levels from where it is mounted on the wall. The noise levels are depicted in an easy format so as to be interpreted with ease and emits a warning when the noise reaches a level, too high than the one that was preset.
