Philips Ambient Experience for Healthcare

Ambient Experience Design extends far beyond the design of a product, it is the creation of an entire environment, sensitive to people´s needs and personalized to their requirements. Ambient Experience for Healthcare merges healthcare technology with architectural qualities and people´s senses into an ambient experience with one prime goal: improving the quality of life for the patients and theirs clinical staff.

A medical scan can be a stressful experience. Philips Ambient Experience for Healthcare is a significant step forward in improving the experience: a complete multimedia environment that adapts to suit individual patients and clinical staff. This distracts patients from the claustrophobic effects of the system and makes them feel much more relaxed.
