A complete health-promoting lighting solution by Danish company, Chromaviso, has been implemented in a new modern operation building at the Central Hospital in Karlstad, Sweden, from operation room to recovery and intensive care.

To improve the conditions for patients, nurses, and surgeons, all 25 new operation rooms have been installed with the Ergonomic Lighting from Chromaviso. It is a lighting concept that combines the colors green and red and divides the room in different lighting zones depending on the tasks.

Every operation room has nine preprogrammed light settings. The settings are customized to each room to fit the different tasks – both before, during and after procedure.

When the operation is completed, the patient is moved to recovery and intensive care where the Ergonomic Circadian Lighting has been installed to support the natural circadian rhythm of staff and patient – which is often a challenge during hospitalization and night shifts.
