Halio Glass: Natural light supports patient health

Natural light contributes to patient well-being and health. Research shows that access to natural daylight reduces stress in patients to such an extent that it lessens the need for analgesic medication by 22 percent. Moreover, natural light also decreases the average length of a hospital stay by four days.

More generally, seeing daylight reduces the risk of depression3, a condition which definitely must not be added to the health issues a patient or resident is already going through. Invasive shading devices that block the view often make patients feel like they are in a prison. Moreover, 92 percent of curtains show contamination within one week4, increasing the risk of nosocomial infections.

Halio is an all-in-one solution for keeping out the sun’s glare and heat, but without blocking incoming daylight or the view.

It gradually and evenly transitions from the most transparent to the darkest state in less than three minutes.
