Zenton has delivered an audio beacon that increases accessibility and safety for people with visual impairment in hospitals. The audio beacon solves the challenge of getting from the entrance of Sabbatsberg Hospital to their intended destination. The sound design of the beacon via directional sound leads them safely all the way from the entrance along the 50 meter long and about 5 meter wide corridor where they are met by the next beacon that takes them to the elevators.
The project was commissioned by Locum, which develops and manages healthcare properties and creates “values in healthcare”. They are one of Sweden’s largest property managers with a property portfolio of approximately 2.1 million square meters of premises in Stockholm County.
