Philips to showcase patient room lighting solution
Dubai, May 29, 2012
Royal Philips Electronics will showcase its innovative HealWell patient-room lighting solution at the 2012 Hospital Build & Infrastructure Middle East Conference (HBME), set to take place from June 4 to 6 in Dubai.
The event will be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre in Sheikh Rashid Hall.
Philips’ HealWell is a lighting solution for hospitals designed to help care providers enhance the healing environment in patient rooms.
As a global leader in lighting, the company combines its expertise with knowledge of lighting’s impact on health, to provide the benefits of natural daylight in the patient’s room, a statement from Philips said.
Healwell is designed to automatically manage a daily rhythm of light, similar to the course of light on a sunny day, promoting the sleep-wake rhythm. In the afternoon and evening, the light levels decrease gradually, enabling patients to relax and prepare for sleep, elevating wellness and patient recovery, the statement said.
“The Hospital Build & Infrastructure Conference is an important platform to Philips, as it offers us a fantastic opportunity to directly showcase our healthcare lighting solutions to those who are directly involved in developing and managing healthcare facilities,” said Paolo Cervini, general manager, Philips Lighting Middle East & Turkey.
In addition, Philips will also lead an educational workshop on ‘Sustainable Lighting Solutions for a Healing Environment’, as well as work with HBME to reduce the event’s carbon footprint, as part of its commitment to sustainability. – TradeArabia News Service
