Ewha Womans University Medical Center cooperated with LG U+ to install Korea’s first "smart sleeping room" at Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital.

The sleeping room includes an artificial intelligence (AI) internet of things (IoT) speaker, sleeping lights, and various other sleeping-related technologies that can detect the sleep state of a patient and automatically turn off the lights and TV, as well as turning on comfortable music and sleeping lights depending on the setting.

Also, the room monitors the air condition and humidity of the room in real time and adjusts the best indoor environment to provide comfort to the patients who are unfamiliar with hospitals.

"In the era of AI and IoT, the smart sleeping room installed Ewha Womans University Mokdong Hospital’s VIP room and sleep polyvalence laboratory can provide patients with a more comfortable hospital environment,” said Han Jong-in, president of the hospital.

Ewha Womans University Medical Center plans to continue to work on the development of smart sleeping room in cooperation with LG U+.

“We hope that we will be able to develop more advanced technology for the hospital environment by studying smart sleeping room with LG U+,” said Moon Byung-in, director of the medical center. “Also, we hope that our medical center will build a stronger cooperation system for future smart hospital projects.”
