At Hospital Unit West in Herning, MODOS worked with midwives and researchers in exploring how film, light and sound design could create a more soothing atmosphere for new delivery rooms. By removing stress, oxytocin production is increased and a natural birth is promoted, reducing the amount of medication, surgery, hospital returns, while creating a better overall patient satisfaction.
Creating a more soothing delivery process reduces the number of birth stop, epidoral blockades and decrease the amount of lobby stimulating drops. MODOS are currently researching how the new delivery room affect patients and staff at Herning Birth Center.
To build the new delivery room, MODOS has engineered Ambience, a modular platform that integrates hardware such as projectors, screens, speakers, lights, buttons and more into one seamless experience.
Since May 2015 we have been working with experts in midwife training from the University of Southern Denmark and Northern Jutland University College, as well as with researchers from Aalborg University and Act2Learn Technology at Northern Jutland University College to investigate how a more relaxing delivery room can affect patients. The study is being performed as a randomized survey with 600 women in labor as the basis, with results to be published soon.
During the process, MODOS laid out a number of objectives to accomplish.
We couldn't be happier with the result, which has become a benchmark for creating delivery rooms.
The feedback from users have been favorable.
