How Living Skies boost patient wellbeing
Living Skies bring the outdoor experience inside. As realistic windows that brighten dark spaces, they help the viewer relax and reconnect with nature.
Designed by Sky Inside UK, they’re ideal for spaces with little access to natural light. They can be placed on any wall, ceiling or surface in a room, and feature clear digital imagery with bespoke designs – from wispy cloud scenes to sparkling night skies.
The impact Living Skies have on health and wellbeing is astounding. The specific lighting balance instantly starts the production of the hormone melatonin in the brain. Melatonin is then released and carried through the bloodstream to all areas of the body. It helps to regulate the body’s circadian cycle, promoting better sleep quality. The body is encouraged to relax and feelings of stress and anxiety are eased.
Living Skies are suitable for hospitals, dental practices and other spaces where patients need help relaxing. Due to captivating lifelike and therapeutic visuals, treatments become easier experiences. They bring benefits to visitor and staff morale, too.
The windows also feature unique Circadian Rhythm® programming. This allows patients to maintain healthy sleeping patterns. It helps speed up recovery time – especially for those suffering from the effects of delirium.
