St Anne’s Sensory room

St Anne’s Sensory room is where technology and people interact and new channels of communication are discovered. Our state of the art assistive technology includes:

  • The Magic Carpet - Eye gaze software enables patients to take part in games such as football and to participate in activities that involve virtual water, leaves or flowers. Interactive images are projected onto a surface, which can be easily controlled by the patient moving across or over the projected image. The Magic Carpet is helping some patients to regain independence.
     
  • Mobile eye gaze system and software - This is used for assessment, therapy and activities.
