Healthcare Window Shade Solutions

Natural Light Maximizes Positive Patient Outcomes

Mecho is the commercial shade industry leader in healthcare daylight control. Utilizing motorized and automated shade systems, room darkening textiles, and Nightingale Award-winning shade products and accessories, Mecho roller shades for healthcare facilities help create the optimum environment for patient comfort and positive patient outcomes.

Daylight is the Medicine,
Automated Hospital Grade Window Shades Provide the Dose

Mecho’s automated healthcare solar solutions are designed to maximize daylight + views for healthcare occupants by raising shades, and keeping them up as much as possible, without glare. The sun regulates our circadian rhythms, which controls everything from sleep to metabolism. As people continue to spend upwards of 90% of their time indoors, we are increasingly reliant on the built environment to provide a circadian stimulus.

In healthcare facilities, studies* demonstrate that patients with access to daylight and views have shorter postoperative inpatient stays, require less pain medication, and experience less distress. Similar, healthcare facility staff with access to daylight experience less stress, laugh more frequently and feel more positive about their job than those who do not have access to natural light.
