Campbell, CA (PRWEB) March 3, 2010
Adaptive Sound Technologies, Inc. (ASTI) announced today that the Stanford University Medical Center has purchased Ecotones Duet Adaptive Sleep Sound Machines. "It is well known that noise in hospitals affects patient comfort and recovery, as well as staff performance. ASTI's adaptive technology can help with these problems" stated Sam Nicolino, President and CEO of ASTI.
After months of pilot testing, the Ecotones Duet units are now available to patients during their hospital stay without charge, through the Guest Services Concierge Program. "We have had patients inquire about how to purchase the units when leaving the hospital," stated Mr. Nicolino. He continued, "Noise has been known to be a problem in hospitals since 1860 when Florence Nightingale wrote Notes on Nursing. Patient stress levels are often high for many reasons, and noise can amplify the discomfort. Ecotones Duet's high quality audio and automatic adjustments in response to noise provide a truly personalized sound environment to aid in relaxation."
Using its patented Adaptive Sound Technology, Ecotones Duet uses a built-in microphone that continuously "listens" to its surroundings for intrusive background noises. In response to unwanted noise, Ecotones Duet dynamically re-mixes its audio playback with complementary natural sounds and automatically adjusts volume to neutralize the offending noise. When intrusive noises subside, Ecotones Duet gradually and automatically returns to normal playback settings.
Ecotones Duet is a non-invasive sleep aid. Designed with the guidance of renowned doctors and sleep specialists, Ecotones Duet has none of the side effects common with drugs, nor the audio and technology limitations of basic white noise and sound machines. Customer satisfaction is assured by a 30-day risk-free guarantee, a one-year limited warranty, and an affordable $149.95 MSRP.
