"Maya 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 Maya I had no annoyance from this. The product didn't feel scary or claustrophobic when I used it."

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.
Micro-Cosmos develops a dome behind the bed of patients. The Micro-Cosmos dome reduces the external stimuli and gives the patient more privacy and comfort. In this way, sleep and recovery is improved.
Maya gives patients a feeling of security and a safe healing-environment.
Various departments within Isala will be using the new Micro-Cosmos dome in the coming weeks. This makes Isala the second location to start using our dome. The test set-up will start at the braincare and neurology department, after which the departments of geriatrics, internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, occupational therapy and surgery will also participate. This gives us a broad picture of which patients benefit from the possibility of being able to isolate themselves from their environment ...
The new Micro-Cosmos dome is the first to be tested in the intensive care and medium care of the St. Antonius Hospital. Today, we presented the new model and gave instructions to nurses. In the coming month, patients will be asked to use the hood for 2 days and nights. The experiences are collected through questionnaires with patients and nurses. In this way we can monitor the effect of using the dome. We are very curious about the experiences of patients and nurses at the St. Antonius hospit...
With the feedback obtained from the user test in the beginning of the yearg, we designed and built a new model. This new model will be used immediately after the weekend at the St. Antonius hospital in Nieuwegein. The new model is easier to use and easier to clean. In addition, the dome can be closed further and the sides are lower, so that less light and noise reach the patient. More domes of this model will be made to be used at several hospitals and to start the pilot study at Radboudumc...
