The design of
our lighting

helps to improve patients’ sense of well-being and trust during examinations. It makes the medical environment seem less intimidating, which in turn makes the patients feel calmer and more relaxed."

The right lighting


Philips AmbiCare lighting is providing welcome relief in the hospital. This unique system was installed in the examination rooms, helping to create a reassuring environment and give patients something to focus on during examinations. The system utilises iColor Cove, Savio and Fugato lights, which provide flexible, dynamic ambience with a range of hues.

Research shows that color and light significantly affects how people feel, and this is something that that pioneers like DiVoCare are beginning to take advantage of. The Philips AmbiCare system is unique because it can be controlled by the patient, so they can create an ambience which suits their personal preferences. By introducing feelings of individual control, DiVoCare reassures the patient, which means fewer examinations have to be repeated. Finally, the combination of room design and flexible light enhances the modern image of the practice.

"If patients are given the chance to express their individuality, this makes them feel they have some control over their environment. This feeling of control helps them feel more relaxed."
