Intelligent light control from Traxon Technologies

In the radiation therapy center at the University Hospital in Münster, Germany, lighting and acoustics can now be controlled by Lighting Control Engines from OSRAM subsidiary Traxon Technologies. In this way, and as part of the overall concept by NextMove, the high-tech atmosphere in the treatment rooms is lessened by sophisticated interior design and lighting design.

An emphasis was placed on an overall therapy room concept in the treatment rooms of the radiation therapy department of the Münster university hospital – in addition to state-of-the-art therapeutic devices. Thanks to warm wall colors as well as light and media applications, the special-purpose rooms provide a more homely atmosphere and a certain level of distraction during the sometimes longer treatment sessions.

Visual accents through LED video panels in the ceiling

Depending on individual preferences, patients can listen to their favorite music or the radio and select from various color sequences. Visual accents, for example the display of light rays shining through a roof of green leaves or the appearance of sea waves − implemented by means of LED video panels in the ceiling as well as downlights and cove luminaires − create a feeling of well-being and trust for the patient during the treatment. In an emergency though, the lighting automatically switches to a white light scene, providing the requisite 500 lux on the treatment surface.

The room atmosphere is controlled by the Lighting Control Engine and Butler XT2 from e:cue. These enable the selection of various color sequences which can also be acoustically modified. High-tech and a homely ambience thus become an integral part of the Münster University Hospital philosophy for the successful treatment of patients.
