The Micro-Cosmos dome is easily placed behind the bed of patients in hospitals or clients in nursings homes. The dome reduces light and sound, which creates a soothing environment and provides privacy. In this way, patients can sleep better and recover faster.
We do not only help patients wellbeing, but also reduce the workload of nurses by reducing the calls during the night.
As a patient in the hospital you stay in a busy environment. Light and noise from equipment, healthcare staff and roommates cause more than half of patients to sleep poorly. On average, patients sleep an hour and a half less than at home. While sleep is extremely important for recovery!
The use of the Micro-Cosmos dome improves sleep quality in 2 out of 3 patients. In addition, it offers more privacy and security.
Dementia has a major influence on the ability and way in which a person processes stimuli. It is important to take this into account, because disturbance in the stimulus processing sometimes leads to problematic behaviour, such as muscle tension, shouting and wandering.
Clients become calmer due to the safe, low-stimulus environment of the Micro-Cosmos dome. This reduces calling and wandering behaviour. Clients also slept better.
With the Micro-Cosmos dome, we can actively use the environment as a tool for recovery.
The dome worked really well to make me sleep better.
Great idea! The patient felt safe and slept well.
The patient indicates that she is calmer and has fewer headaches. This means we are able to give her less pain medicine.
"The Micro-Cosmos was easy to install. The patient felt safe and slept well. Super idea!"
"If my roommate had to be inspected by the nursing staff and the nurses turned on the lamp for this, due to the Micro-Cosmos I had no annoyance from this. The product didn't feel scary or claustrophobic when I used it."

The sleep quality of patients inside the hospital is very poor. More than half of the patients sleep poorly in the hospital. On average patients sleep 1.5 hours less than at home. While sleep is important for both physical and mental health and recovery. A patient that is able to rest more will recover faster and has less experience of pain.
We have gained a lot of experience with the Micro-Cosmos dome in various clinical departments, such as neurology, geriatrics, internal medicine, oncology and ICU. Through surveys with 100+ patients, we know that: 2 out of 3 patients sleep better with the bed cap. More than 70% of patients are less bothered by light and noise. More than 90% of nurses are positive about its use. In addition, we have measured that the dome reduces noise by an average of 3 dB(A) and reduces 40% of noi...
We will attend the MEDICA 2022 in Düsseldorf, where we will showcase our product to anyone who is interested in improving the sleep quality of patients by creating a secure and private environment. You can visit us from 14-17 November at the NL Pavilion, Hall 15/E22 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. ...
The 4 pilot models will be converted this week with new segments. The inside of these segments are stickered with 4 different decors: Forest, Northern Lights, Pastel Sky and Beach. The transistion of one pilot model can be viewed here. All 4 decors have been selected for their scientifically proven positive effects on people's rest and well-being. In the coming months, the sets will be tested on patients in various hospitals. We are very curious about the reactions and experiences. ...
