collaboration outfits Wellstar Health
System facilities with 16 Wellness Rooms
serving up immersive soundscapes for
frontline workers
By Amala Reddie
AUDIO IS CERTAINLY
becoming a key element
of wellness solutions. This
project by integration firm
Applied Global Technologies
(AGT) was part of a
larger job for Atlanta-based
Wellstar Health System, in
partnership with Spatial Inc.
and HealthTunes, to install
16 Wellness Rooms across
Wellstar's local-area hospitals
and health parks with
funding of $1.5 million from
Catalyst by Wellstar.
The partnership focused
on designing private spaces
that featured immersive
sound environments to
provide a respite for frontline
healthcare workers in
the hospital setting, with
the purpose of helping
reduce the stress and
anxiety brought on by the
overwhelming COVID-19
health crisis.
Working with HealthTunes
to develop custom

soundscapes for its Wellness
Room projects, the partners
selected Spatial to manage
and deploy the fully immersive
experiences because
of its ease of use to create
360-degree soundscapes
and then deploy with physics-based
tuning to easily fit
any room's dimensions, and
for its hardware-agnostic
capability to work with an
integrator's preference on
equipment.
The installation at Wellstar
Kennestone Hospital
in Marietta, Ga., included a
mix of 32 loudspeakers and
subwoofers from Sonance
across a primary shared wellness
room and three private
wellness rooms to provide
hospital employees with
various soothing AI-driven,
non-looping environmental
soundscapes they could
choose from via a touchscreen
interface to help
them escape, relax, destress
AGT and Spatial designed 360-degree soundscape 'MedicineMusic'
coverage using a variety of Sonance in-wall and
pendant speakers and subwoofers.
and even process difficult
experiences such as losing a
patient.
Wellstar contracted AGT
to help implement the
wellness rooms - in parallel
with conversation to
be the first hospital group
to design and develop the
wellness rooms with Spatial.
AGT specializes in hospital
projects as part of its expertise
in managing large-scale
contracts for commercial,
government and education
clients nationwide.
Spatial's immersive
audio platform combined
with HealthTunes' evidence-based
'MusicMedicine'
allows nurses, doctors
and other healthcare
professionals to choose
a soundscape. This could
be a forest or a deep-sea
dive with singing whales,
where they feel like they are
transported away from the
pressure of the hospital.
The soundscapes are enhanced
with the option of
Auditory Beat Stimulation,
a research-based approach
that uses low-frequency
pulses to entrain relaxed
brain states and relax the
parasympathetic nervous
system.
Studies show that physically
moving away from a
hectic environment, even
for just a few minutes, helps
to regulate our emotional
wellness while reducing
feelings of stress and anxiety.
