Improving Quality Of Life in Care Homes and Hospitals
Sensory stimulation is vital to the emotional wellbeing of humans and it’s absolutely essential in the mental care setting. Not only does it convey emotional support, affection, and respect but sensory stimulation can dramatically improve a person’s quality of life.
Activating the senses via multi-sensory experiences has proven to help increase happiness, reduce stress, pain, and apathy, resulting overall in an improved quality of life for care home patients.
A Multisensory Solution for IQL
SENSIKS. Offers clear cut solutions for improving quality of life in care homes including a wide variety of (wheelchair accessible) sensory reality pod sizes, implementation support, a content platform with ever-increasing new experience solutions, full operational service, and warrantee.
Pod placements are standard equipped with actuators for full multisensory compositions of temperature, airflow, light, tremble, sound, and fragrance which can be played, with or without a VR headset.
A basic free content library is available with experience solutions for relaxation, activation, therapeutic, play, and education. We consider our clients as development partners and aim for close active corporations in which user feedback is generated by our clients based on which we can continuously generate more fitting content solutions to make sure our clients never become bored as there is always a new experience around the corner.
Next to our free basis content offering there is also the possibility to purchase extra specific content from our content studio network.
Specific customized experiences can be designed based on specific client needs including fast prototyping for certain trial purposes.
All our VR (virtual reality) content can also be used outside of the pod in any VR headset in order to provide audiovisual experiences to client's locations where no Sensiks pod is available.
Therapeutic and Educational
Therapeutic applications for stress reduction amongst patients and healthcare professionals, PTSD autism, anxiety, and intervention as well as applications for experiential learning and training are available as well.
Optionally biofeedback sensors can be integrated to set goals and track personalized response and progress via heart rate, HRV, skin conductance, or brainwaves. Generated user data can be used for increased interactivity, content personalization, or analyses.
Sensiks has placed pods at several care homes within the Netherlands since 2017. Care home use case reports, and placement or pricing options can be sent on request.
