The HappyMed video glasses have been inspiring many in the Helios clinic chain since 2017. The Helios Clinic in Schleswig, in Schkeuditz or the Heart Center Leipzig and the Helios Clinic Vogelsang offer their patients the video glasses.

"Our patients are absolutely thrilled with the new offer. "We offer the glasses especially to patients who want to distract themselves under a partial anesthetic or who are very excited before the operation. Immersed in the world of vision and sound, they quickly forget that a medical procedure is about to happen or that they are currently in the operating room. "

Report from MDR aktuell - "Glasses instead of pill": HappyMed in action in the Helios Schkeuditz

"We are totally satisfied. The employees have completely accepted the system. The patients are incredibly happy about it. They are really well distracted, they are completely relaxed. "

Prof. Dr. Ostrich
Head of Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine, Helios Klinikum Berlin-Buch

"The HappyMed video glasses are easy to use and have a large selection of films. What particularly convinces me is that patient acceptance is extremely high. We look after patients in the areas of gynecology & obstetrics, pediatric surgery and oral and maxillofacial surgery and have received mostly positive feedback. "

Dr. Christian Icke
Chief anesthesiologist at the HELIOS Clinic Blankenhain and former senior anesthetist at the HELIOS Clinic Erfurt

"In the beginning, HappyMed was ridiculed as a technical toy. Now all patients who need medicinal sedation are treated with HappyMed first. We have learned that audiovisual decoupling with HappyMed is more comfortable for the patient and has no side effects. This noticeably relieves our team in the operating room and in the recovery room. "

Dr. Kai Morsbach
Senior consultant for anesthesia, emergency medicine & perioperative pain therapy as well as OR coordinator, HELIOS Klinikum Erfurt

"The video glasses are a good offer for patients to be able to distract themselves in the perioperative area. For me, this is an obvious benefit for patient wellbeing. We certainly have more uses than devices at the moment. "

Dr. Achim Spenner
Senior physician for anesthesia, anesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain therapy, HELIOS Klinikum Erfurt
