PULSE - HANDLES THE CIRCADIAN RHYTHM

OPI PROJECT - NATIONAL HOSPITAL GLOSTRUP - PLH ARCHITECTS

The PULSE fixture is the outcome of a Public/Private co-operation between Glostrup National Hospital, PLH Architects/Henning Solfeldt and Lightcare.

In the autumn of 2013, the Service Centre at the National Hospital – Glostrup, took the initiative to develop a bedside lamp with circadian light and inspection light. Region H funds were available to cover part of the development work and the purchase of 25 bed- and table lamps for department N35. The remaining funds would come from the relevant private partners through partial self-financing of own time and other development costs.

Today, the parties have a product that is designed for users and installed at the National Hospital, Glostrup. The lamp has a unique functionality and can be set on circadian light for stimulating the patients’ circadian rhythm or on venflon- or inspection light for the staff.

The product has international potential and with wide application also caters for among others elder care and office environments.

The bed lamp was after introduction on “Lysets dag”, mentioned in the new programme New Science. Watch an extract of the programme here (Danish only).
