What we do

We work with hospitals, dentists and other healthcare providers to create lighting solutions for dull, dark and windowless rooms.

Through our luminous LED sky ceilings and windows, patients, staff and visitors can enjoy realistic, real-time, moving images.

Sky Inside UK products are the only UK-manufactured, validated products for use in the NHS which have proven benefits for patients.

Benefits for healthcare

Our virtual skylights, windows and other products can make a vital difference to patient wellbeing. Benefits include:

  • Reduced levels of stress and anxiety
  • Access to a welcome distraction for patients undergoing any sort of treatment. Our virtual fish tanks, for example, are popular among children
  • Reconnection to the natural environment, which offers mental and physical nourishment, and promotes healing
  • Patients in rooms with little natural light can maintain healthy sleeping patterns and circadian rhythms (our internal clocks)
  • Those experiencing delirium will have their symptoms reduced, and will be helped towards a quick recovery
  • Overall, any room is a more comfortable and enjoyable place to be.

Why we do it

Visiting a hospital or other healthcare centre can be an unsettling experience. By creating powerful, lifelike interior features, we provide a temporary escape for patients and visitors. We want them to feel at ease and more relaxed.

Royal Stoke University Hospital, critical care

We’ve worked with the University Hospitals of the North Midlands Trust to install a multi-circadian living sky™ feature for critical care. Read more about this project over on our blog, or see media coverage from StokeonTrentLive.

These sky ceilings are hugely beneficial to the patients and staff. It has been fantastic to not only see them in action, but speak to patients about their benefit.

Chief Executive

Lorn & Islands Hospital

We are so happy with the finished product and the patients love them. It is proving to be a great distraction for anxious patients and a talking point for many more. Every day without fail someone will compliment them!

On a personal note, your communication and professionalism throughout have been fantastic and helped reduce what could have been a stressful time during the installation.

Our products show realistic moving images from day into night. As a result, this has helped improve patient sleeping patterns at the Walton Centre, as well as reduce delirium. Read more about the story.

We’re really proud that we’ve been able to provide this for one of our patient rooms in ITU. This new system is the only one I’m aware of in the country.
