GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Illinois, March 31, 2008 - Philips’ exciting new LED-based lighting concept, AmbiScene, was recently installed at Kent Hospital in Izmir, Turkey alongside MRI technology from ETS-Lindgren. This patient-focused lighting system enhances the hospital experience by tailoring all aspects of the lights to the patient's preferences. “AmbiScene provides inspiring and meaningful lighting experiences using the elements of color, intensity, direction and contrast to modify the mood of a space over time,” said a source at Philips.
Working with Philips on the month-long project, ETS-Lindgren contributed its shielding expertise to this innovative room through the installation of all the copper shielding, an RF window, and most notably, two MRI RF shielded doors. These lightweight MRDS Doors provide a reliable and economical door solution for MRI facilities. The MRDS door is designed to facilitate access into and out of the suite with its new, ergonomic door handle. For more information, visit www.ets-lindgren.com/MRDS.
