This amazing unit we have purchased is in the Paediatric emergency department at RUH Hospital.
The Senior Sister in the Department said:
“I do not have the words to describe how utterly fantastic this is!
The children love it, as do all the adults, young and old.
Children of all ages can not resist is because it is so responsive. I can’t tell you how delighted we are with it. We have not switched it off since the minute it arrived.
The nurses…. not a single nurse can walk near it without interacting with it and having a giggle. That sends us on our way a little bit refreshed, with a smile on our face.
I love it because it helps us assess so many things about children… their coordination (which we have to assess after a bang to the head) and whether they can weight bear on their legs… parents have been amazed how quickly their children seem to be feeling better once they arrive in our Department.
We even used it to calm an adult with profound special needs the other day.
It is so versatile.
I wish I could have sat you near the machine last Saturday night, to quietly watch just how wonderful we all think this irresistible machine is”
The SENse offers floor or ceiling projection that responds to body movement when it is detected by the overhead camera. It costs £7,000.
