Seeing the Light—Sort of

It’s not uncommon for high-density spaces, such as hospitals and high schools, to be constituted of many windowless areas—places, clearly, where shortages of natural light don’t facilitate the sense of well-being many institutions wish to enact. To address this issue, CoeLux, a company that offers technology that artificially mimics daylight, has experimented with the tech in a number of healthcare spaces, and is reporting some early feedback.

At La Tour Hospital in Geneva, several CoeLux systems have been installed throughout the ward, including a CoeLux 60 HC in the waiting room, and nine CoeLux ST Ibla, in one of the “bunker” rooms where patients undergo treatments.

At the Neonatal Intensive Care Ward at the Mangiagalli Clinic in Milan, Prof. Fabio Mosca, neonatologist and director of this ward, reports staff and family are highly appreciative of the new lighting.
