Abstract

Acoustic pollution has become a global problem, but, having negative effects on the health and well-being of people, it becomes a variable to control in hospital environments. That is why this article presents the design of a panel with noise reduction properties and with characteristics that allow to replace the restrictions of the hospital environment, through the concepts of Home Warmth and Patient Safety as fundamental bases to limit the problem. The design exercise uses the VDI 2221 model and the problem / solution symmetry model in order to restrict the design and refine it without losing sight of the context for which the panel is designed. As a result, a design of the structure is obtained that later goes on to a stage of improvement of details, in which characteristics associated to the materials, production processes and other additional characteristics are defined.
