Experia installs sensory room for Hampshire charity


Sensory specialist Experia has completed the install of a sensory room for a charity in Hampshire.

The firm utilised its Multisensory Interactive Learning Environment technology to create the room, which is designed to provide an engaging learning environment and a calm environment.

It is hoped that the new room at Hannahwood, Ivybridge, will aid the charity in helping students transition from adolescence to adulthood through care, therapy and learning opportunities.

Experia’s room can be tailored to simulate different environments, for example, to simulate the sensation of skydiving or being underwater.

The wireless technology allows people to control the room themselves through tablet computers and switches.

Experia director, Gareth Jones, told South Hams Gazette: “This was a great project to work on and I am so pleased that users at Hannahs are benefitting from the room already.

“We wanted to create a sensory room which would be both an engaging learning space and also a calm environment where the young adults can relax. It’s always so rewarding to hear what a difference having access to sensory equipment makes and the feedback from the team at Hannahs has been fantastic.”

Activities and events manager at Hannahs, Bex Marshall, told the newspaper: “The sensory room has had a huge impact on a range of users here in Hannahwood and helps encourage independence, allowing them to stay in their peer groups to learn.”
