The mission of Canary Sound Design is to add intelligence to surgical suite music systems. Music is relaxing at times, but at other times may interfere with thinking, hearing and communicating clearly. Designed for the operating room, CanaryBox™ automatically quiets or silences music at clinically appropriate times.
CanaryBox™ integrates music with data from the anesthesia monitor for semi-automated volume control. Flexible algorithms offer advanced control of the acoustic environment in the operating room, enhancing workflow and communication.
