Why SOTOS?

Our modern operations have become increasingly complex, as have our instruments. Our operating theatres have evolved into high-tech environments. For a long time now, a surgical procedure has no longer been a "one-man show" of the 1st surgeon. It requires a highly qualified team with various special tasks, which can only ensure the maximum possible success in an optimally functioning and interacting cooperation in a well-coordinated environment.The personnel must be highly specialised and highly trained - because the planned intervention at the operating table as well ...

How SOTOS works

The Silent Operating Theatre Optimisation System offers each team member a technically generated quiet listening environment. Only the information and important signals necessary for their work are made available to them. Automatically adapting music masks the residual noise level and creates a productive work performance.
The SOTOS offers a new, comprehensive approach to solving this problem and is being continuously developed further. It is becoming more and more complex "under the bonnet", but also increasingly user-friendly.

Arguable advantages

- significantly less and highly significant quieter talking is done at the operating table - this results in a measurably lower germ load through the air in the operating field.
This results in fewer wound infections and leads to a reduction in costs, e.g. by avoiding very long stays, re-operations, and the like.
- With the data collected in the study mentioned below, corona particles in the air can also be reduced by using SOTOS, which ensures an otherwise unattainable level of infection protection in a necessarily communicative environment.

Göttingen surgeon makes operating room quieter - with app and headphones

If it's too loud, you get distracted - that can have fatal consequences, especially in the operating room. That's why Göttingen heart surgeon Dr. Martin Friedrich has developed a system that keeps things quiet while still allowing communication. Silent HighTech Solutions GmbH is applying for the Innovation Award.

    SOTOS V4.2
    Welcome to "SOTOS".

    The Silent Operating Theatre Optimisation System is a noise-reducing information management system. A complex digital audio workstation runs in the background of SOTOS, whose programming has been developed over the years, and now in version 4.2 with new features and newly programmed graphical user interfaces has been significantly revised.


    Silent HighTech Solutions aims to improve audio communication in noisy high-tech work environments, especially in clinical operating rooms. For this purpose Silent HighTech Solutions has put together and specially programmed high-end audio technology. This can be integrated into existing setups or used immediately as a stand-alone version. A separate audio channel is assigned to each user. Using in-ear hearing systems with active noise reduction, the user only receives information that he or she needs for the job at hand. Due to the noise suppression and the precisely fitting information transmission, the clinic staff / employee remains significantly more concentrated and efficient.

    DE102015205463A1:

    An apparatus for creating audio environments in an operating room is described. The device comprises a plurality of portable intercom units. The intercom units each have at least one microphone and one headphone, which are designed to suppress ambient noise. A mixer is in signal exchange with the plurality of intercom units and is designed for program-controlled signal transmission between the plurality of intercom units. Different control programs, each defining the program-controlled signal line, are stored in a memory. At least one of the control programs restricts the exchange of signals between the plurality of intercom units to form the audio environments. A controller determines one of the control programs and controls the mixer for the program-controlled signal line between the plurality of intercom units in accordance with the determined control program.
