Operating rooms are noisy, high-tech environments. The operation, the control of sophisticated technology require a high level of knowledge and experience. Information is exchanged through verbal communication. SOTOS provides each team member via radio headsets with a technically sophisticated, quiet individual listening environment generated on a workstation. Only information necessary for the work task is provided (team members' speech, other information) SOTOS creates precise professional communication. The flow of information is controlled by smartphone apps.
