Health & Well-being 

Experts in acoustic absorption and reverberation 
Many studies have been carried out and studies find that noise within a typical ward can be a threat to public health and well-being and excessive noise can have a negative impact on not only the patients but the health care staff also. In more recent years the improvement of acoustics in hospitals are being considered and positively changes for the better particularly with alzheimer's wards, mental health units and operating theatres.
