For the majority of people, having a bath is an enjoyable and calming experience - however, for some who suffer with disabilities, including physical, learning and behavioural, the bathing experience can be quite the opposite.
At Sensorykraft, we truly believe that a sensory bathroom can help to overcome this barrier, whilst offering endless benefits for any user, of any age.
An individualised combination of calming lighting, soothing projection imagery, relaxing audio and gentle aromatherapy can introduce a sensory dynamic which helps transform the bathing experience. What was once a stressful and difficult time, can be eased towards one which provides positive stimulation of the senses and encourages relaxation- and even fun!
Stimulate and balance the sensory system with calming and soothing LED lighting.
Enhance development of a range of skills whilst providing stimulation with positive distraction of adaptable effects wheels.
Create a tranquil ambience with calming hormone-balancing audio. Personal music choice can transform the bathroom to a preferable positive place.
Ensure you utilise these 5 Key Elements when Designing your Sensory Bathroom
Sensory mood-lighting has been used in various studies with researchers unanimously agreeing that, when used correctly; various colours of light can positively influence people’s mood and attitude.
The sensory mood-lighting can help stimulate and balance the sensory system, particularly for those on the autistic spectrum.
Sensory image projectors can provide relaxing imagery as a great distraction for those who feel anxious during bathing time, whilst also helping to develop a range of skills including tracking, ‘cause and effect’ and colour recognition.
Projectors can include variable speed sensory wheel rotators so that the sensory images are adjustable to provide any desired effect and an ability to individualise the experience for each user.
Sensory audio products such as speakers and amplifiers can be a great addition to any sensory bathroom. If used right, sensory music can create atmosphere- which is all important in creating a feeling of safety and tranquillity.
Music is a natural sedative able to induce the release of calming hormones and can play a prominent role in reducing the flow of chemicals which keep the system highly charged.
Music can reduce fight or flight responses by calming the system down. Introducing music to an environment can often allow a stressful situation to become more tolerable and acceptable, and easier to cope with. Bluetooth sound systems can be of extra benefit, allowing the user or carer to select their preferred music choice and therefore allowing the experience to be individual every time
