Distraction Therapy is a way of helping someone cope with a painful or difficult procedure. It aims to take their mind off the situation by concentrating on something else that its happening. For example, for those who find bath time extremely stressful, our sensory bathrooms in care homes and hospitals can be invaluable in reducing tension and anxiety, thanks to the distracting effects of the colour and shape changes. With the interactivity provided by the waterproof IP-rated floating switch, giving the user control over when the colours and shapes alter, the user is able to focus on something other than their pain or distress. For those with emotional and behavioural difficulties, severe learning difficulties or autism, distraction therapy can also be used to distract them from their own thoughts, if they find themselves falling into a vicious circle of frustration or sensory overload. Our IRiS Room Director Software, the brains behind our MiLE and Immersive Rooms as well as our High-dependency De-escalation Room Package, enables you to create personalised scenarios tailored to whatever calms a specific user, providing them with exactly what they need to let go of their distress and de-escalate in that moment. Check out the sensory solutions below, all suitable for distraction therapy, or contact us today to talk to someone about setting up the perfect sensory environment to meet your users' needs.
