Planning a Sensory Room for Care, Rehabilitation or Assisted Living Environments

The Expert Team at Sensorykraft can help you to create a carefully designed sensory room suitable for your care, rehabilitation or assisted living facility.

We can transform any space into a bespoke sensory room which has been expertly designed to meet the individual needs of the intended users. Whether you are looking for a sensory solution which can be enjoyed passively or interactively, our team have a wealth of knowledge to help advise you on the right sensory equipment to best meet your project requirements.

Our Sensory Specialists are on-hand to discuss sensory ideas and advise you about key considerations bespoke to your project. We can advise on all aspects, including room configuration, sensory equipment, accessibility, user safety, user controls, and individual user sensory needs.

Face-to-face Consultation

As part of our complimentary consultation service, our expert team will visit you at your intended project site. At Sensorykraft we feel that this is an essential step in your project planning.

We will have an in-depth discussion about your project goals. Importantly. we will explore the individual sensory needs of the intended user(s) to ensure a plan that is suitable and ensures your project will sucessfully meet your requirements.

We will perform a physical survey of the project space which will help advise on practical considerations such as accessibility, room configuration, sensory equipment advice, and aspects such as lighting, heating and electrics.

This consultation is an extremely useful step in your project planning- and Sensorykraft will provide all details from your consultation in a bespoke, detailed project proposal and 3D room designs for you to review in your own time.

Beautiful 3D Renders

Imagine being able to see a 3D preview of your proposed sensory space ahead of your project start!

At Sensorykraft we provide to-scale 3D room mock-ups to enable you to visualise the finished design and configuration. We want you to be excited and confident about your plans and ensure they are suitable for your project requirements before you invest.

Our 3D rendering service is free and offered as part of our Expert Consultation Service.

Detailed Project Proposal

Once a member of our expert Sensory team has visited you for your free face-to-face Consultation, we will create a detailed project proposal which has been tailored bespoke to your project, and includes careful consideration on how to best meet your project goals and requirements.

Our project proposals are an extremely useful resource to assist any applications for sensory project funding and grants.

The Project Proposal will include a summary of the consultation meeting, including:

-Individual user considerations and requirements

-Room configuration

-Accessibility and user safety

-Suitability of sensory equipment

-Sensory needs- passive and interactive environments

-Project space considerations (including lighting/heating/ electrics)

Our Project Proposals are free and offered as part of our Expert Consultation Service.

Raised Plinth Modular System

Our Raised Plinth Modular System is a combination of raised plinth platforms and wall padding. Our wipe-clean vinyl is available in a range of colours. The system provides a safe and comfortable place for the user to enjoy. The modular units can be customised with a range of different sensory equipment options. Whether your sensory space is being designed to be enjoyed as a passive or interactive sensory experience, the equipment can be selected to meet your specific project requirements and the sensory needs of the user.

Equipment examples: light tube, bubble tube, Bluetooth vibration sound system, fibre optics, mirrors, starlight carpet.

Vibro System: Feel the Music

A dedicated vibration system can be built into the seating plinths to add an exciting dynamic to the sensory experience.

The vibration system takes signals from the in-built Bluetooth audio system and filters to play only the low frequency vibration notes. The vibrations will cleverly sync to the room music. Vibration intensity can be modified to each user’s preferences.

The use of vibration to provide tactile stimulation has been recognised by therapists as a great way of stimulating the body’s proprioceptive sense (ability to interpret where your body parts are in relation to each other) and has been found to have very calming effects- particularly effective for those who are sensory-seeking (such as those on the autistic spectrum).

Add The Immersive Touch

If your intended user would benefit from a more interactive sensory experience, our fantastic immersive interactive floor systems are a great choice!

Interactivity is ideal for individuals with lots of energy and who require lots of sensory feedback.

Interactive systems are also a great tool to help encourage less energetic users to engage or participate in an exciting interactive game or scenario.

In-Built Storage

Your Raised Plinth Modular System can be designed to include an in-built lockable storage cupboard (see image to right).

This is an ideal feature if your project requires:

- Easy access to music amplifier

- Extra storage space for sensory equipment

- Equipment that needs to be kept out of reach of user

Alternatively, an external padded storage cupboard may be more suitable for your project (see image above).

Accessibility

User accessibility is a key consideration when designing your bespoke sensory project. Our expert team will be on-hand throughout the planning process to advise you about key considerations including:

- Room configuration

- Safe wheelchair access

- Mobile or ceiling track hoist use

- Design which promotes safe manual handling practice

Require a H-Frame Ceiling Track Hoist?

Sensorykraft and Kingkraft are registered experts in advising and installing Guldmann H-Frame hoist systems. We can also offer various hoisting solutions including wall-fixed and portable designs.

We will design the configuration to fit in perfectly with any sensory equipment, ensuring safe accessibility and user safety.

Robust Equipment / Robust Casing

Equipment choice is a key consideration when designing your sensory project- we can incorporate equipment protection into the plan.

Our expert team can advise you on equipment adaptations which can maximise protection of equipment within the sensory space, such as robust casing for sensory projectors. The robust design can withstand physical force, wear and tear.

This is an ideal solution where the sensory space is to be used by a user with behavioural problems. Promotes equipment safety and also safeguards the user from harm.

Safety Wall & Floor Padding

If you require more protection, wall and floor padding might be a great choice for your project.

We can design your sensory space to include secure timber backed wall pads and comfortable floor pads. This is an ideal solution where the sensory space is to be used by a user with behavioural problems. Promotes user safety within the sensory environment.

Padding is available in a range of colours.

Low Maintenance

Our Sensory Rooms have been expertly designed to ensure that they provide a sensory space which requires low maintenance:

All equipment is easy to wipe-clean, promoting hygiene. All vinyl padding is water resistant and hard wearing and can withstand physical force, wear and tear.

Sensory equipment features long-life low voltage LEDs- no requirement to stock and replace expensive bulbs.

Light tubes offer a maintenance-free solution compared to bubble tubes which require regular cleaning. If a bubble tube is preferred, cleaning kits can be provided.

Our equipment is configured to be 'ready to use' - no preparation required prior to room use.

Get the most out of your Sensory Room

To help you get the most out of your sensory room, and ensure that you maximise all of its sensory benefits, it is important that your project plan doesn't overlook some important considerations:

Sensory goals- what are the sensory needs of the intended user(s) that the sensory room aims to meet?

Design goals- how can you configure the sensory room to make the most out of the space and equipment available?

Project goals- how can you get the most out of your cost budget and project time frames?

Let us provide the sensory solutions to your questions...

Bespoke Design For Intended User

At Sensorykraft we are passionate about keeping the user at the centre of sensory project planning. To help you maximise the benefits of your sensory space, our team can help you to design a bespoke sensory room which is tailored to the unique needs of each and every user.

Key considerations must include:

- Age customisation
- Physical requirements and accessibility considerations
- Psychosocial considerations
- Sensory requirements: Hypersensitive & Hyposensitive (interactive or passive)
- Customisation for user preferences (e.g. range of vinyl colour options available)
