As many people age, they develop a common hearing loss condition, called Presbycusis, in which hearing gradually deteriorates and certain sounds become distorted. But it´s not just music that can be painful for older ears, little noises at a hospital environment can also be disturbing for the patients. For hospitals, it´s hard to change little noises that just exist, but a recent study shows that even small changes can make a big impact on hospital noise levels. In the research they also upgraded patient rooms and the central nursing station with smart monitors which helped cut down on unnecessary alarms. Foston Europe is able to integrate those typical nursecall systems where the alert goes to a panel with lights or a buzzer and derive those noisy systems to a DECT phone, smartphone app or screen in a way that the sound is not disturbing any patients.
