Premature babies require a long (sometimes for months) hospital stay after birth. In order to create privacy conditions and ensure an emotional connection between parents and children, there are separate wards provided. At the same time, silence, as well as disorderly noise, inhibits the formation of the brain and motor development of a prematurely born child. This silence should be filled in, while the sounds of the equipment should be supplemented with a meaningful auditory stimulus, which is music. This type of therapy is non-traumatic, requires a one-time investment, has low risks, is easy to use, and has a positive impact on children’s health both immediately and subsequently. It also reduces the costs of rehabilitation that such children may need in the future.

Grant funds provided by Urban Space 100 will be spent to purchase, deliver and install an acoustic system, a wall-mounted volume control and additional elements at the unit of intensive care and early rehabilitation of prematurely born children at the Municipal Non-Profit Enterprise, Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Children’s Clinical Hospital.
