In January 2021,New Center for Treatment
& Care at Chiba University Hospital has been put into use.Based on the
human-centered philosophy, more attention is paid to patients’ psychological
needs and their sensory experiences. Chiba University Hospital used LTECH’s
professional version of decoders to create a safe, quiet and comfortable public
space.Also RGB ambient illumination was applied to divide different spaces,
making the hospital into a more relaxing environment.
The predecessor of Chiba University
Hospital was Kyoritsu Hospital, which was founded in 1874 and was renamed
Nanjing University in 1949 after schools being merged.The hospital is
equivalent to a first-class hospital at Grade 3 in China, Its diagnosis and treatment,and
clinical research are widely recognized.
At Chiba University Hospital in Japan,
different light colors represent different department areas.By distinguishing
the light colors，patients can find the department
exactly they want to go. And the combination of the bright orange color and
high brightness light makes it easy to know where IVR reception it is at first
glance. The lemon yellow bright lights illuminate CT reception and make it
rather obvious and noticeable among the green light emitted, which let you
hardly ignore the reception.
Apart from dividing spaces, lighting is
capable of creating a bright and comfortable environment to relieve patients’
negative emotions , which is helpful for medical workers to complete various
tasks efficiently and quickly.professional version of decoders can
control multiple lights in different areas simultaneously and deliver
flicker-free dimming at low brightness level, which meet the needs of accent
lighting and local lighting. What’s more, gradient cool lighting effects can be
achieved which can not only enrich the hierarchy of the space at the same time,
but also divide the spaces and present the prominent lighting effects of the
Picture of lighting effects in multiple
The hospital set up the dynamic lighting
effect from pink to orange in the corridor of the MRI Room and Nuclear Medicine
Room. Pink and orange are warm colors, which can make people feel warm and
intimate. The dynamic effect can effectively attract patients’ attention and
relieve their anxiety while waiting to see their doctors.
Dynamic lighting effects
In the corridors leading to all areas of
the hospital, due to a large floating population, corridor lights are mainly
used to provide bright illumination and distribute light evenly. Color
temperature can also be adjusted to create a comfortable atmosphere.
The safety of hospital lighting should not
be ignored. Professional version of decoders has passed UL and TUV
certification and the design of short circuit, overload and overheat protection
make it safer and more reliable. Based on safety, hospital lighting not only
requires ideal lighting brightness and color temperature level, but also takes
the comfort of medical staff and patients into account. There will be many
challenges that occur in the process of the application.
