How Micro-Cosmos helps?

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.

Micro-Cosmos in hospitals

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.

The patient indicates that she is calmer and has fewer headaches. This means we are able to give her less pain medicine.

"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 importance of sleep

The importance of sleep

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.
