Coming soon to Portland, OR is a new multi-sensory environment / Snoezelen
room specially designed for sensory therapy treatment for autism, dementia and other sensory processing disorders.
Snoezelen or controlled multisensory environment (MSE) is a therapy for people with autism and other developmental disabilities, dementia or brain injury. It consists of placing the person in a soothing and stimulating environment, called the “Snoezelen room”. These rooms are specially designed to deliver stimuli to various senses, using lighting effects, color, sounds, music, scents, etc. The combination of different materials on a wall may be explored using tactile senses, and the floor may be adjusted to stimulate the sense of balance. The person is usually accompanied by an aide or therapist.
At CymaSpace we feel our self-developed multi-sensory technologies would have a direct positive impact in sensory therapy applications and are looking into partnerships to make an accessible and inclusive multi-sensory environment for therapeutic treatments a reality.
