Multi-Sensory Rooms

Multi-Sensory Rooms evolved from the Dutch concept of Snoezelen in the 1980s. Specifically designed to enable people to enjoy a wide range of experiences for therapy, learning, stimulation, relaxation and fun, Mike Ayres Design has pioneered the design and use of Multi-Sensory Rooms ever since. The concept is to create events focussed on particular senses such as feel, vision, sound, smell and taste as well as the more abstract senses of wellbeing, space, time, togetherness and many more. A Multi-Sensory Room is a special place where the participant feels entirely at ease and able to initiate and control effects and the experience created. This is achieved in a host of different ways; through special sound and visual effects, tactile experience, vibration, use of aroma and music either independently or in combination. Participants can achieve a liberating sense of control, often for the first time in their lives, and this empowerment offers huge opportunities for learning, relaxation and communication. The use of multi-sensory practice continues to evolve and reach new audiences with every passing year. Successfully implemented in both mainstream and special educational settings, Sensory Rooms are now a trusted resource for residential and dementia care as well as private, community and respite projects. Irrespective of the aim or audience, it is important to approach the project logically and with care to ensure a considered, appropriate, effective environment is designed and built. Partnership with Mike Ayres Design offers you the certainty of experience and authority and the flexibility to design and manufacture an environment to meet and exceed your aspirations. Not your budget.

Mike Ayres Design Architectural building advice The most productive environments are achieved through careful consideration of the structure and space itself at the earliest opportunity. Mike Ayres Design is experienced in advising Architects and Project teams on how best to prepare the space in a new build or refurbishment project to ensure the optimum result from your investment.

Design

Familiarisation training is provided on every environment, our experienced installation teams providing a basic introduction to the environment and its functions. Mike Ayres Design offers more comprehensive options in partnership with Hirstwood Training (see page 194) including In-Set days tailored to your needs. We recommend an on-going programme to keep you and your team refreshed and engaged with the sensory possibilities within the room.

Prioritising design is vital to the success of your room. It is important to distinguish between design and the ‘layout’ of equipment. Design embraces much more than simply locating equipment in a space; at Mike Ayres Design it informs every conversation, product and placement and is based on a deep understanding of what ‘works’. This professional design service is absorbed into the project for most Multi-Sensory rooms, more complex projects could incur specific consultation costs but this is rare and always discussed with you.

Finance Mike Ayres Design is happy to design projects on a staged development basis to facilitate easier, long term financial planning for you.

Manufacture A key advantage of partnership with Mike Ayres Design is the assurance of quality. The vast majority of our range is designed and manufactured in our own workshops to an unparalleled standard. The remaining products are either manufactured exclusively for us by partners or carefully chosen to compliment our own range by our experienced team. Safety, function and quality are central to everything we produce and supply and we refuse to compromise on production or installation.

Installation Our own experienced installation teams are all DBS checked and have the relevant qualifications to ensure an outstanding outcome. Every Mike Ayres Design installation is to the highest safety standards and conforms to all current safety regulations. All of our teams take pride in the functionality and detail of our installations and understand the importance of details and an aesthetic ‘finish’.

Guarantee All products and installations offer the assurance of a 12-month guarantee and further support is available through our range of maintenance services.

Service and maintenance Mike Ayres Design employs experienced maintenance staff to provide on-going service, either on request or under an agreed contract. This usually involves a six monthly or annual visit.

Training Once installed, your sensory environment can only fulfil its potential if everyone is confident using the equipment. Training is essential to achieve this.

Sensory Studios

®

Sensory Studio.® A space of infinite possibility. Tailor your sessions to be truly immersive or simply focus on a specific sense or single objective. This is a concept originated by Mike Ayres, which has evolved out of the use of Snoezelen, multi-sensory rooms and interactive light and dark rooms. Sensory Studios® are now included in many mainstream schools as well as schools for pupils with special and additional needs. They have been developed to meet the demand for more flexible spaces which enable the users to create whatever type of environment or mood they wish, either temporary or permanent. The Sensory Studio® allows appropriate interactivity by people of all cognitive and physical abilities. They are used for curriculum work at all levels, drama and creative arts, as themed environments, for communication and pastoral work, as well as for specific therapy and assessment. The Sensory Studio® can be a relaxing and fun environment to explore and experiment in. It encompasses all of the possibilities that current technologies offer, an environment in which you can experiment with and exploit lots of physical materials and low-tech experiences. Most importantly, Sensory Studio® control systems allow the user to have complete control of their environment and all of the equipment in it… very simply. The Sensory Studio® can be controlled in a number of ways at any time: • Manually, by direct interaction with equipment, or by plugging in Switches. • Radio remotely, switching and interacting with equipment wirelessly via Transmitters • With an iPad, using our revolutionary ‘Switch4’ iPad app. • With dynamic interactive projection (for some elements of the Studio) Sensory Studio® is a trademark registered by Mike Ayres Design.

8


Mike Ayres Design The basic elements of a Sensory Studio® are: A flexible shell, open space or blank canvas that can be reshaped with equipment and effects to create or influence whatever mood, experience, theme or scenario for group or individual use is required, and change it as the theme develops. A flexible and easy-to-use control system which can be used by anyone, anywhere, and which adapts as technology develops. An environment which can grow and change as individual needs evolve and to incorporate new equipment and ideas. A space in which to exploit the use of new technology, such as games consoles, iPads and other tablets. Adequate storage and shelving. Easy access for setting up and maintenance. Plenty of low-tech materials and disposal elements to use and experiment with. The typical uses of a Sensory Studio® are: Drama, create stage sets and changing scenes, for audience participation. It allows complete integration of mainstream and special needs curriculum work. Theme work, creating any sort of scene, such as seasons, travel, space, curriculum topics and dramatic events in which participants can interact at their level of functioning or skill. Individual choice and control, enables anyone of any ability to select and control their environment, express likes and dislikes, understand freedom of choice and learn skills for independence and inclusion. Learning specific skills, such as cause and effect, visual tracking, listening and communication and all the skills needed for learning. Curriculum work across a broad spectrum of subjects, for example; science, maths, literacy, drama, physical education, history and social sciences. The Sensory Studio® enhances opportunities for mainstream students too, enabling everyone to participate on equal terms.

Sensory Pools

Being in water is one of the most all encompassing multi-sensory activities any of us experience. It provides freedom of movement unachievable on ‘land’. Mike Ayres Design believe any sensory equipment within a hydrotherapy or leisure pool should be used to compliment, not replace, the experience of being in the water and use visual and lighting effects to create additional atmosphere for your session. Most in-water experiences need to be designed in to the pool structure when it is being built and Mike Ayres Design frequently work with clients and pool designers to achieve this.

Shower Cloud A giant 150cm diameter cloud shaped shower head that pours rain down into the pool.

However, a lot of features can still be added to an existing pool area and many of these can be controlled by an iPad via the Switch4 control App. Naturally, our products and services conform to the strict regulations associated with pool areas and we are happy to discuss your aspirations with you. For further no-obligation advice and information please call the Mike Ayres Design team on 01359 251 551 or email enquiries@mikeayresdesign.co.uk

Bubble Creator A large upside down saucer shaped disc that sits anywhere on the bottom of the pool and creates a large stream of fine bubbles.

Switch4 LED Colourchange Lights

Multi-media Projection and Sound System

A large keyboard within the pool hall enables you to change the colour of the whole space instantly. You can also have a wonderful moving rainbow effect with speed and direction control.

Projectors are housed in a dry-air cabinet to ensure the longevity of your investment. For maximum impact, the projected image begins at the water level to provide a sense of connection between the experiences. Use your videos or slideshows to create the image and impact you want.

Projection When you are in the pool you are often looking up at the ceiling space, we try to position projected images to make the most of this. Images and light within the pool need to be basic simple shapes.

Lighting Rig All equipment must be over the dry deck and always be at high level, where it cannot be reached by anyone using the pool. It will be subject to chemical onslaught from the pool filtration system and humidity. We will discuss all of the implications of this and the regulations and how all this will impact upon the equipment that you can include in your sensory pool.

Play Hose A fun and inexpensive alternative to a water canon, rain shower, and whatever else you want it to be. The hose must be connected to the pool water filter system.

Control and Storage If space allows, we can build a special projection cabinet, and localised control via large keyboards within the pool hall. The control cabinet will be within a dry area of the complex.

iPad Control Control all of the sensory equipment with an iPad via the Switch4 control app and access sound and video via iTunes and iMovie to enrich your sessions. Remember, add a waterproof cover and you could use the iPad as a controller in the water!

Infrastructure The long-term success of any Sensory Room or Studio is hugely reliant on careful design of the space itself as well as deciding on the equipment that will furnish it. It is therefore important to prepare the space by installing or including: • Appropriate lighting • Correct electrical services • Heating, cooling and ventilation • Floor and wall surfaces and sympathetic décor • Accessible storage Consider involving Mike Ayres Design’s team as early in the process as possible as the objective consultancy for your whole project ensures the best outcome for your investment. 

Curtains and Drapes We offer many types of Curtains and Drapes to transform and divide rooms. Blackout lined Curtains are used at windows to reduce the light levels within the room. Unlined Curtains can be used to change colours of walls and soften the feel of the space. Single and Double-sided Curtains can be used to divide the room to create smaller spaces and obscure equipment, so that it is not distracting when not in use.

Audio-Visual Systems Sound, visual projection, interactive projection and audio vibration are a very important feature in Sensory Rooms and Studios. The size and shape of the space, how you want to create and use sound and projection, and where you want to see and interact with images within the space are all determining factors when choosing an Audio-Visual System. We use a wide range of systems from ‘Micros’ up to high quality ‘Separates’ and can integrate a computer, interactive projection and gaming system with them too. We suggest you buy the best quality possible within your budget. Please phone or email for advice on a suitable system for your environment 01359 251 551 – enquiries@mikeayresdesign.co.uk

Projection Curtains Made to measure specifically for your room. Projection Curtains give a bright, clear image on both sides when projected upon, but don’t show the glare of the lamps or spotlights. They are ideal for working close up to images and for shadow work. Curtains are normally supplied with tracks and hooks, but can be supplied without them. All curtains are manufactured using inherently fire retardant material and can be laundered without shrinking. £ ex VAT

Shelves

Power Socket Safety Covers

When we create a Sensory environment, we position Shelves in strategic locations to enable you to place Spotlights, Projectors and other Sensory equipment at high level. All high level Shelves include a Safety Harness that must be fastened to any equipment placed on the Shelf. (We never fit Shelves without them!). Sockets and Switch2 Control Points are put adjacent to the Shelves enabling you to control projected images and effects from anywhere in the room.

Switch Controls and sockets are often put at low level for ease of access and to prevent trailing cables. However, this can make them attractive to people who ‘fiddle’ and is vulnerable to damage. The Safety Cover has a hinged lid that covers the whole unit. It can be closed whilst equipment is plugged in and switched radio remotely. The Safety Cover is opened by pressing discreet buttons on each side of its box. It will fit any standard double 13amp socket and can be retrospectively fitted.

Fine Mesh Non-Slip Matting

The Kick Step resolves this problem and can also be used as a stool and for balancing on. This sturdy metal Kick Step runs freely on its castors until weight is put on it, and then it anchors firmly to the floor. Size: 43cm diameter x 43cm high.

Storage Cabinets Cabinets are individually made for each room. Adequate and easily accessible storage is an important aspect of any Sensory Space. You need to be able to ‘hide’ equipment that isn’t being used, to avoid distracting your student or client and to ensure you can create a ‘blank canvas’ in a Studio. As well as being secure, equipment needs to be instantly accessible. We design and manufacture Storage Cabinets to suit the specific needs of the environment, ensuring secure compartments tailored to the Audio and Visual equipment selected. This may include Apple TV, WiFi Bases, Laptops alongside shelves, resource trays and ‘Really Useful Boxes’. The ‘Really Useful Boxes’ have proved so durable and reliable that they are now available as a product in their own right and feature in larger cabinet installations.

Switch Control Easy Switch, Switch2, Switch4 and Switch4 iPad Control A fully integrated switching system that works together, perfectly. Enabling anyone of any ability to control equipment and their environment is an essential right and a means to access, learning, communication and enjoyment. The means by which you can do this has evolved in ways that we could only imagine a few years ago. From physical switches, integrated or directly connected to equipment, to wireless, to tablet, to body gesture and eye control. Mike Ayres Design has always been at the forefront of this development within Multi-sensory work. Simple switches are still as relevant today as the latest mobile technology. Therefore, we now have 4 levels of control for our fully integrated Multi-Sensory Equipment. All of the levels of control work seamlessly together and therefore any piece of equipment works for each individual person using it in a way to suit them.

1. Easy Switch

The most basic Control System – Plug single Switches directly into the equipment. Use 1 or 2 Switches or a Nine Switch Keyboard. Step through colours, select colour, bubbles, and ON / OFF options.

2. Switch2

Enables you to switch basic equipment in 4 different modes. Plug any relevant piece of equipment into the Switch2 Control Unit and use any type of Switch to control it in a mode of your choice; On, Latched, Momentary or Timed. This can be done manually (plug switches directly into the Control Unit) or Radio Remotely (with Switches plugged into a Universal Transmitter).

3. Switch4

A much more comprehensive type of control, that can be used manually and radio remotely with single or multiple Switches. It has up to 8 different programmes, each with a range of switching options appropriate for the individual piece of equipment. It enables you to tailor the operation of the equipment to any persons specific needs and abilities.

4. Switch4 iPad Control

Programme and switch individual pieces of equipment and your whole room with the Switch4 app. This is the most advanced Sensory Environment control available, and it is developing further assets as new equipment and needs arise. One touch – to select the equipment. One touch – to select the programme. ...and one touch to turn the whole iPad into one or any number of switches. The iPad will programme and switch anything plugged into any Switch2 Control Unit, and any Switch4 Interactive equipment. All equipment can still be operated with physical switches, both manually and radio remotely.

They are memory free, so do not have to be drained or reconditioned for charging. Powerex NiMH 300mAh Rechargeable Batteries are one of the highest capacity batteries available and can be recharged up to 1000 times. They are memory free, so do not have to be drained or reconditioned for charging. Maha Battery Chargers will replenish your batteries very quickly and the batteries can be safely left in the charger for an extended period; however, it is not advisable to store batteries in the charger.

Switches Extremely well made, reliable and robust switches by Mike Ayres Design Switches you use are the most important component for controlling equipment. They need to be completely reliable, be accessible, and work in a way that your abilities comfortably allow. Some people need to work towards the understanding that the Switch is the means of accessing any equipment or effect. For others, it is an essential tool for access and communication. This is why Mike Ayres has created a range of simple high quality Switches, which are extremely durable and reliable. They are also an integral part of the overall Switch2 and Switch4 Control Systems. Mike Ayres Design Switches will work with most other control systems. (It is also worth noting that most other Switches will work with the Mike Ayres Design Control Systems). Where people have precise or complex needs it is best to work with a professional adviser or therapist to choose the most appropriate Switch available.

Nine Switch Keyboard Part of an incredibly versatile switching system, the Keyboard’s low profile design and touch sensitive switch area follows the arc of natural hand movement. This ergonomic design helps make it suitable for people with limited dexterity. The Keyboard functions as 1,2,4,8, or 9 switches and is supplied with three tough plastic overlays to show the active switch areas. Designed for use with a number of pieces of equipment such as the Switch4 Interactive and Easy Switch Bubble Tubes, LED Colour Change Light Kits, Switch4 Interactive and Easy Switch Fibre Optic Lights, Shapes Infinity Panel and an increasing range of equipment as they are upgraded and new products emerge. Features include: • 1,2,4,8 or 9 Switch Keyboard (selected by a simple slide switch) • Tough plastic overlays attached by Velcro dots • Touch sensitive switch areas, no pressure needed • Select silent or audible ‘click’ when switch is activated • No batteries needed • Has a compartment to tuck cables and the Universal Transmitter into whilst in use, thus making it tidy and compact • Switches the corresponding colours in the Switch4 Interactive Bubble Tube, Shapes Infinity Panel, Colour Change Lights, Fibre Optic Light Sources and any other equipment designed and manufactured by Mike Ayres Design Code

Easy Switch Fibre Optic Sideglow Light Source The brightest and most controllable LED Light Source available. This is a new generation of controllable Light Sources. It takes full advantage of LED technology. Brighter, quieter, smaller, cooler and offering complete control of a range of eight colours and what’s more, you never have to buy a replacement bulb. The Easy Switch LED Light Source emits coloured light up to the equivalent of an 80 watt bulb of pure colour. It gently cycles through a sequence of eight colours, each colour fading into the next, so there are no sudden and disturbing flashes when they change. It includes two integral jack sockets, into which you can plug single switches to step through the colours and switch them on and off. If you plug in a Nine Switch Keyboard, you can select and mix colours. When the switches are not in use, the Light Source reverts to passive colour cycling. Mike Ayres Design Light Sources include a special safety feature that means that the LED light switches off when there is Fibre Optic tails plugged into them. All standard 30mm diameter Fibre Optic Harnesses, from any manufacturer, will fit into our Light Sources. £ ex VAT

Mike Ayres Design Bubble Tubes

The features of our Bubble Tubes include:

Bubble Tubes are one of the most universally popular pieces of equipment in any Sensory or Relaxation Room and Mike Ayres Design has a wide range to choose from.

8 colour changes: A bright spectrum of 8 clear colours which gently change when used passively.

The bright changing coloured bubbles rise through the column of water and create a fascinating visual experience with a relaxing sound and vibration. They create a centrepiece to focus on when rooms are used for relaxation and offer a spectacular reward when used in a structured way for cause and effect or curriculum based activities. We have been designing and manufacturing our own Bubble Tubes for many years and have been at the forefront of many new developments. Recent innovations have included the Giant and Ultra-Giant Bubble Tubes and Switch4 iPad Control.

Instant control: Use any switch to step through the colours or select and mix them, instantly. Direct or radio remote control: Plug switches directly into the Bubble Tube Controller or have instant radio remote control with our unique Switch4 Interactive Control. Easy Switch: Control in its simplest form, plug switches directly into the Bubble Tube to switch and mix colours. Switch4 Interactive Control: This gives you 8 advanced programmes, such as latched, momentary and timed switching, two colour mixing modes and a range of ‘Simon’ games. Everything can have direct or radio remote switching. Easy Access: the uniquely designed base is very compact and allows users to sit or lay around the Bubble Tube without the need for a platform or other raised plinth. It gives close wheelchair access, allowing the user to touch and cuddle the tube. Removable Bubble Tube Surround Cushions and Bean Cushions are available. LED Lights: All of our Bubble Tubes are illuminated with LED lights which have precise colour balance as well as being extremely bright and very long lasting. (You will never have to replace a lamp again). Standard Bubble Tubes: All Standard Bubble Tubes are 15cm in diameter. This includes Ball Bubble Tubes, Square Based ones and Easy Access ones. Large Bubble Tubes: These were introduced in our last catalogue. They are 20cm in diameter and give a much bigger visual effect than the standard ones. They can be used passively and have either Easy Switch or Switch4 Interactive Control. Giant Bubble Tubes: Again these were introduced in our last catalogue and were designed by Mike Ayres. They are a truly enormous 30cm diameter and give a spectacular effect, which is possible due to their unique design. They can be used passively and have either Easy Switch or Switch4 Interactive Control. Ultra Giant Bubble Tube: These are MONSTERS! 50cm in diameter and immensely impressive, they are particularly suited to large spaces. They can be used and controlled in exactly the same way as all other Mike Ayres Design Bubble Tubes too.

Bubble Tubes

Easy Switch Bubble Tube

Switch4 Interactive Bubble Tube

This is a very simple level of interactivity, enabling you to use any Switch plugged directly into the base of the Bubble Tube to control it. When no switch is plugged in, the lights cycle through the 8 bright colours, fading gently between them, whilst a constant stream of bubbles rises up through the water.

The Switch4 Interactive Bubble Tube is the most advanced, yet easiest ‘interactive’ tool for many teaching, therapeutic and leisure activities. You can control the colours and bubbles together or separately in a number of different programmes and play co-operative and competitive games with one person or a group of people. This is a valuable tool for giving choice, enabling independence, learning specific skills and as a sensory experience. It has 8 programmes or modes enabling highly dependent people to interact with it and each other on a par with physically and intellectually more able people using almost any type of switch. It works very intuitively, and its control is based on the principle of a hidden computer.

Plug a single Switch into the ‘Step colour’ socket and each time you activate the switch the colour will change to the next in sequence. Plug another Switch into the ‘On-off’ socket and the bubbles will stop and start with each touch of the switch. Plug a Nine Switch Keyboard into the ‘Step colour’ socket and you can select via the Nine Switch Keyboard any colour directly and even touch two colours to colour mix (eg. touch red and blue to create purple). You can also switch the bubbles separately. Easy Switch control is available with all styles and sizes of Bubble Tube.

Bubble Tubes Standard Bubble Tubes 15cm diameter This is the traditional diameter Bubble Tube that is used in most Sensory environments and gives an impressive visual reward when used passively or with interactive control. All our Bubble Tubes now use LED colour change technology that is a brighter, purer colour, uses less energy and is more controllable. You will also never need to buy another replacement bulb. We also have ‘soft colour change’ which means that there are no scary flashes when it changes from one colour to another. Bubble Tubes are available in two styles of base; Easy Access or Square. There are two types of control; Easy Switch or Switch4 Interactive. They come in four different heights; 1.00m, 1.50m, 1.75m and 2.00m. Square Base Bubble Tubes £ ex VAT

To ensure the final product is perfect for your needs we can manufacture Bean Cushions to special sizes. Please call on 01359 251 551 to discuss your requirements.

This can include Interactive Projection and Immersive experiences depending on your needs and aspirations, for further details turn to page 79-85. Projectors can be used to show film clips, animation, pictures taken on a digital camera, create amazing visual patterns with your voice, as a backdrop for theme work, and with Powerpoint or Keynote for curriculum or topic based work.

The projectors can be linked to video and DVD players, a sound system, iPod connection, computer and to an iPad.

iPads, Tablets and Mobile Devices in Sensory Studios ®

iPads, Tablets and Mobile Devices have revolutionised our lives and are relied upon for ever more of our daily tasks. Enabling easy storage of any audio and visual ‘tracks’ and replay directly through the player, a television, multi-media projector, computer or sound system. The iPad is also an exceptionally good stand alone resource for interactive and learning applications (Apps). Apple TV will also enable you to mirror whatever is on an iPad screen, so you can project (onto a wall or screen) anything that you can see or do in an App, image or folder. This opens up a fantastic range of uses for effects, games, tasks and communication. All of this can be a brilliant resource for learning and experience within a Sensory Room. Add to this the ability to programme and switch any physical equipment in the room and you have an invaluable tool for access and communication. iTunes, Podcasts and many other media sharing Apps are widely used in schools, colleges and universities for activities including recording and broadcasting lessons and lectures, sharing information, music and videos. Children produce media content as part of their curriculum and use them to access the vast reservoir of information, advice and opinion available from around the world. How can we use them in Sensory Studios®? For controlling your Sensory Environment The Switch4 iPad App has revolutionised the way that you can use and programme your Sensory Equipment and the whole Environment and then, with one click, turn your iPad into large switches to operate everything. See Switch4 Control on page 34.

For slide shows Make your own slideshow of anything; a trip to the zoo, ‘what I cooked in the kitchen’, all your friends, relatives and pets, a story, a sequenced activity, visual instructions, – anything you like. For story telling Create libraries of sounds, photos, drawings and videos to play whilst telling your story. The libraries can be easily changed and added to at any time, and you can share them with anyone in the world. Creating themes and lessons iPads are an accessible platform for almost any activity and encourage sharing of best practice and experiences. Take pictures, download from the internet, produce them on your computer, use any images, sounds and videos to create effects for a journey through space, a trip to the shop, London in the second World War, ‘what do I need to make an omelette?’, or any other subject. The pupils can help to create the themes and keep them as evidence of their work. Using iPads and iTunes is very simple and the technology is being improved and becoming even easier all the time. Using Apps, video and mirroring You can use an iPad for almost anything and can share that experience with anyone. You can do live videoing and see yourself and friends on a giant projection wall, or mirror whatever is on the screen of the iPad as well as play an incredibly wide range of interactive games and access the internet. There is also an ever increasing number of specialist and mainstream Apps that can be used very successfully in Sensory Environments. See the links on page 77 for more information about appropriate Apps.

Mike Ayres Design Opti Sensory LED Projector Projectors are one of the most basic and versatile pieces of equipment used for multi-sensory work. This NEW LED projector is as bright as the original Solar 250, it is also much cooler, quieter, weighs less, does not spill as much unwanted light and you never need to replace lamps. This projector also has the unique feature of having sockets enabling you to plug in Switches to turn the image ON and OFF and START and STOP the rotation of the effects wheel. It can project moving images over a whole wall, or with the use of rotating prisms and mirrors, around a whole room. It can also project onto a very small area to create a focal point for visual, cause-and-effect and choice-giving work. Projectors can be used for shadow work, theming an area, art and technology (by creating your own wheels), numeracy work, literacy work as well as storytelling too. There are a wide range of wheels, cassettes, lenses and attachments, which allow very varied use. A Wheel or Cassette Rotator is required to attach effects to the Opti Sensory LED Projector. £ ex VAT

Wheel and Cassette Rotators Effect wheels must be used with the Wheel Rotators in the projectors. There are three different speeds of wheel rotator for the 6” effect wheels: Ultra Slow Rotator, for story telling and talking about the images. ½ RPM Rotator, for most uses. Shows clear movement of projected images. 5 RPM Rotator, for fast moving images. Wheel Safe Rotator has a metal casing and is best for protecting Liquid Wheels which are made of glass and are therefore fragile. (Does not fit Solar 100 Projector) Cassette Rotator, for animating pattern cassettes. Max Rotator, for use with the Max Effect Wheels Dual Wheel Rotator is designed to fit both Standard 6” Wheels and 9” Max Wheels. It also has variable speed control, from 1 revolution in 50 minutes up to 5 revolutions in 1 minute. Please note that you should only use the Rotator at very slow speeds with the Opti LED Projectors. (Projectors with halogen lamps create heat, which may damage the wheel at very low speed.) The Dual Wheel Rotator fits all Opti and Solar Projectors (except the Aura Projector which has a built in rotator).

The Multi-facet Mirror fits on to the lens of the Opti Sensory Projector. It is a less expensive option to the Multi-Mirror and gives a fragmented image effect, but without the moving mirror head.

A really useful tip Storing Projector Wheels and Motors is always a problem, so here’s a very simple idea. Take a number of the styrene packing pieces for the 6” wheels and tape them together with Gaffer Tape. This makes a rack that will keep your wheels clean and tidy. You can also place large wheels in them but they won’t fit perfectly.

Projection and Light Effects

Pinspot Lights and Colour Wheels

Mirror Balls and Motors

A Pinspot creates a narrow beam of light to focus on Mirror Balls, reflective objects or small areas on the wall. The Colour Wheel provides a gentle colour change to the spot of light. When used with a Mirrorball, all the reflected spots of light will gently change colour as they move around the room. The Portable Pinspot can be used anywhere in the room. It can be plugged into a Switch2 Control Point and used for cause and effect work.

Mirror Balls are one of the most commonly found pieces of equipment in Sensory Rooms, mostly used in conjunction with a Pinspot Light. For extra spots of light try using two Pinspots aimed onto the Mirrorball from different positions. But have you tried it with a projector focused onto it or just placed it in a pool of sunlight? The Portable Mirror Ball can be used almost anywhere, just plug into a 13amp socket. This model has a ½ RPM motor, a speed we recommend for relaxation and visual tracking. Note: For visual comfort it is better to position Mirror Balls towards one side or corner of a room.

The White Brolley is an instant projection screen which is easily transported and stored and will even keep the rain off you! It is particularly useful when you want to get images close to someone’s face and to be able to control the size of the image to keep it within their field of vision. The Black Brolley can be used for projection and is ideal for attaching fluorescent materials and tapes and used with a UV blacklight for visual enhancement work. Note: These specially made brollies have a central spine with no spike on the end, or handle and are therefore as safe as they can possibly be. Others sell standard umbrellas with spikes! £ ex VAT

The Revolving Ball sends discs of multi-coloured lights shooting around the room in much the same way as a mirror ball. Try placing it behind a projection curtain or a Projection Brolley for focused work. It can be used with a Switch2 Control Unit. Powered by 240 volts. Suitable for supervised use. The design detail may vary. Code

Acrylic Mirrors on all four internal walls, featuring 250 points of changing coloured lights shining through, offer the illusion of multiple reflections surrounded by an infinite galaxy of twinkling stars. An integral Easy Switch Control enables you to change the colour of the lights or switch them off, both achieved through large built-in switches or an additional plug in switch to suit your needs. Remarkably, there is room inside for two adults or up to four children. Equally impressive as part of a Soft Play Room or as a stand-alone unit within a Sensory Room, the Hut is specified with a cushioned roof to compliment the cushioned exterior walls when used in a Soft-Play room. All of our Infinity Huts support the weight of up to four adults. For a Sensory Room, choose the Hut with a Projection Roof to enable you to project wonderful images and scenes to add another visual dimension to the experience. The projected image passes through the screen, reflects from the walls and creates wonderful stimulation and relaxation possibilities. A truly awesome experience!

Soundscapes CDs Soundscapes are a combination of an audio CD, with continuously playing background sounds of specific environments or scenes, and a WAV sound CD with a wide range of individual sound effects associated with that particular subject. This makes them ideal for themed environments and storytelling. There is free software that allows you to download a keyboard to trigger any of the individual sounds via your computer. You can also download them to iTunes and use them directly or via an iPod. In this way you can play the background sounds and the individual sounds together whenever you want. Code

All Things Tactile

An introduction to tactile experience Tactile sensation is a fundamental part of your overall sensory experience. It acts as a media for exploration and enhances the understanding of the environment around you. As you develop, you build up an internal language for textures, as you do with all your senses. You learn about safe and dangerous tactile experiences through contact with the materials around you. Heat can be a safe or dangerous sensation, and how do you learn about that, how do you understand what is pleasant and what will hurt? You do this by exploring and learning about the properties of materials within safe parameters. Rough and smooth, soft and hard, warm and cold, angular and curved, embossed and impressed, rigid and flexible, fine and coarse, linear and meandering, regular and random, absorbent and reflective. You get the idea! These are all properties considered when creating a mural, as well as overall shape, size, colour, safety of materials used, flow of movement, as you explore it. Murals make a strong statement when you walk into a space. They are something you can physically engage with and will give you a much stronger personal connection to a building. Often used to offer original and distinctive ‘wayfinders’ and signposts throughout a building. The murals are an art form, individually designed and made to suit your needs and space. If you are interested in Tactile Murals contact Mike Ayres Design on 01359 251 551. Here is a small selection of Murals created previously, a much larger selection can be viewed in the Gallery on our website: www.mikeayresdesign.co.uk and follow the links, or www.tactilemurals.com

Mike Ayres Design Tactile Wall Tiles Sometimes it is better to have tactile experiences spread out over a larger area, or just have a few to compare at one time. The Tactile Wall Tiles enable you to do both. The 40 x 40cm squares have special fixings that enable them to be attached to any wall and be changed around from time to time. Designed to be robust, Tactile Wall Tiles offer good tactile contrast and look attractive; individually and in groups. There are no others that compare to them. £ ex VAT

Mike Ayres Design Loopies Loopies are a unique and original range of toys designed by Mike Ayres. Fascinatingly simple and irresistible for children and adults of all abilities, Loopies are great fun to play with and encourage many basic and complex skills. The light 6cm diameter balls twist their way through the transparent tube, disappearing and eventually reappearing to drop out of the end. These are the original, as designed by Mike Ayres, and remain the best available.

Single Knot Loopie

Double Knot Loopie

The same principle as the Single Twist Loopie but with a slightly more complex shape which encourages you to handle it with both hands, twisting it around until the balls fall out. Two different coloured holes enable you to identify an entrance and exit for the balls. Size: 30 x 20 x 20cm

This more complicated knot requires more thinking about which way to move and twist the Loopie, using both hands and anticipating the direction in which the ball will move. It is suitable for older children and adults. Size: 30 x 20 x 20cm

They will withstand any amount of jumping on and strenuous use by children and adults as well as the weight of wheelchairs and trolleys. Can also be used on a table top or any flat surface. It only needs a little pressure to create a dramatic visual effect. Size: 50 x 50cm x 0.7cm

The same wonderful visual and tactile experience as the square tiles, Liquid Floor Discs are a magnificent addition to your armoury of sensory equipment – use them to enrich literacy and numeracy sessions, simply add imagination! A motivating resource that encourages and rewards movement and exploration of the surfaces, Liquid Floor Discs are available for portable use or set in to the flooring of a permanent installation. Size: 60cm diameter x 0.6cm thick.

Sensory Integration

Floor and Wall Cushions Brackets and Support Structures Designed to fit any room depending on the size, shape or location of doors and partitions, Southpaw’s Custom Support Structure is perfect for rooms that cannot accommodate a permanently installed ceiling eyebolt.

Mike Ayres Design manufactures a wide range of Cushions to cover the walls, floor, pillars and any obstacle that needs to be made safe for your Sensory Integration work. Go to the ‘Cushions and Supports’ and ‘Soft Play’ sections of this catalogue to see some of the options available. Everything is custom made to fit your individual space, so talk to us about your specific needs.

We start with a standard size of 366cm L x 244cm W x 305cm H (12’L x 8’W x 10’H) at the base. From there you can customize the finished height of your structure to a minimum height of 230cm (7’6”) or a maximum height of 366cm (12’). The main crossbeam may be as short as 244cm (8’) or as long as 610cm (20’) to accommodate your therapy space. The Custom Support Structure is constructed of 6mm thick x 125 x 75mm (0.25” thick 5” x 3”) structural steel tubing. This solid, stable, freestanding structure will support almost any piece of suspended equipment, and will not slip or slide with the most rigorous activity. Structures greater than 450cm (15’) will require the eyebolt wraps or swivel eyebolt wraps for suspension of swings. To help you determine what size will fit your needs, call us on 01359 251 551.

Advantage Steamroller

Some children crave deep pressure and will love the challenge of crawling between the rollers and being ‘flattened’ by the Steamroller. This piece of equipment offers more than just deep pressure. It allows children to work on motor planning skills, body awareness and shoulder stability as they work their bodies out of the device. It’s a great addition to all of your therapeutic activities.

Colours may vary.

This is an alternative Steamroller for younger children. It has one set of rollers to crawl through, but is very effective for deep pressure input. Colours may vary. Note: Adult Supervision is recommended.

Sense-stimulating easy chair for children and adults with mental and physical unrest. By stimulating the sensory system, the chair’s mouldable ball filling – found inside the seat, back and side flaps – makes the user feel comfortable in sitting and reclining positions. The balls stimulate the body’s sense of touch as well as the muscle and joint position senses, and the weight and pressure of the balls increase body awareness and promote calmness. With its four side flaps, the chair hugs the body closely, giving the user a feeling of safety and security. The stimulating effect of the chair offers a wonderful place to escape from hectic daily life or difficult situations. Restlessness and feelings of insecurity subside when sitting in the chair, and its surrounding flaps provide the user a feeling of comfort and well-being. Focus and concentration Protac SenSit Chair can also be useful in situations that demand extra focus and concentration, e.g. in class or while doing homework. Design and size Protac SenSit is available in three modern and practical colours. Foot Stools in matching colour and material are also available for purchase. The chair comes in two different heights. The standard model is suitable for people up to 180 cm tall. People who are taller than 180 cm can benefit from using the model with an extra high back. Colours: Aqua Blue, Lime Green and Dark Grey (Please specify when ordering). Sizes: Standard – for people under 180cm. Large – for people over 180cm.

Protac Blankets Protac Ball Blankets are designed to stimulate the sensory system, thereby improving body consciousness. As you move, the balls move around and trigger a response in your brain. This gives a sense of security and has a soothing effect. Protac Ball Blankets are recognised aids for those with difficulty sleeping and for physical and mental unrest among children, young people, adults and the elderly with effects that are scientifically proven. Granule Blankets provide the user with better feel for their bodies and it’s limits, promoting calmness and a sense of security. Classic Blankets alleviate sleeping problems, mental and physical unrest, hyperactivity and lack of body awareness and are suitable for young people and adults. Calm Blankets are constructed with channels to limit the movement of the balls, so sensory stimulation is milder and encourages calmness. All Blankets are made with fire retardant fabric.

Cushions and Supports

Bean loungers and cushions Made with a very special fabric, in a wide range of colours! We now have a range of bean cushions, to compliment the foam filled cushions, supports and soft shapes, used in Sensory and Soft Play rooms. They are made with a soft textured, extremely durable polyurethane coated fabric, that feels wonderful to touch and is waterproof, breathable, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, phthalate free and fire retardant. All cushions have a fire retardant calico inner bag to contain the beads, so the outer cover can be taken off and cleaned, without spilling the beans. The bean cushions are wonderful islands to sit on for storytelling and focussed work. The larger ones can be moulded to suit almost any posture and are good for small children to clamber over, or bigger people just sit or lay in. They can be thrown or stacked in a corner when not in use.

Ball Pools

Ball Pools This is probably the strongest and best Ball Pool ever made. It was designed by Mike Ayres about 25 years ago and is still made to the same exacting standards today. Its strong wooden structure is completely cushioned and covered with reinforced PVC fabric. It is strong enough for adults to sit and walk on the walls and the balls will not leak out underneath or at the joints. Every Ball Pool is individually made, so can be designed to suit your precise needs and space. See ‘Ball Pool Balls’ for advice on which balls to use.

Associates and Distributors Associates Whilst we have great expertise in designing manufacturing and installing sensory facilities and soft rooms, as well as control systems and individual products, we admit that we cannot be experts at everything. We therefore work in close association with other people who are specialists in their fields. Here are some of the companies we are pleased to be associated with:

Soundbeam Soundbeam are a long established company that produces a range of products that are essential tools for creative use of music and sound within schools and for a wide range of people with special needs. We have worked together to develop a number of products, which support the use of the Soundbeam, and continue to do so.

Hirstwood training Hirstwood Training are people who specialise in educating about sensory learning and the use of studios and rooms. Mike Ayres Design will undertake basic familiarisation training when you have a room or studio installed by us, but we strongly advise that you invest in specialist training to get full use out of your facility.

OM Interactive OM Interactive is one of the leading companies producing gesture-controlled interactive sensory and learning environments, including systems such as omiVista and omiBeam. We work closely together on many projects, combining our expertise to create the best possible interactive and immersive environments and Sensory StudiosÂŽ.

Optikinetics We have been working with Opti since the creation of the very first Sensory Environments in the UK (back in the 1980s). There have been many attempts at copying the Solar Projectors, but none have reached the same quality or have the same wide range of wheels and attachments. For this reason we continue to use the Opti Sensory Projectors and work closely with the company to provide you with the best possible equipment.

Southpaw Southpaw are the original and best manufacturers of Sensory Integration equipment. We are working in association with Southpaw to provide vestibular and sensory integration equipment within Mike Ayres Design sensory environments and soft rooms. We provide the infrastructure, Wall and Floor Cushions and a wide range of Southpaw equipment.

Sensory Spectacle Sensory Spectacle creates immersive experiences to help create awareness and to educate about Sensory Processing Difficulties through experience. Their workshops and installations give you an opportunity of experiencing first-hand, allowing for greater awareness and understanding of auditory, visual, tactile, olfactory, gustatory, proprioceptive and vestibular difficulties. They hope that this will enable you to make more informed choices when defining your Sensory Room.

Training Investing in training is as important as the equipment and environment itself. If you undertake training before you have your room or equipment it can help you to see the potential and decide exactly what is appropriate for your pupils and clients. If you do training after, it will enable everyone to get the fullest use and value for your facilities. We offer comprehensive training for multi-sensory work, setting up and using the Soundbeam and comprehensive use of omiVista and Beams. These companies are independent of Mike Ayres Design and you can contact them independently, or through us. There is no additional charge or commission.

Multi-Sensory Training

omiVista and omiBeam Training

Enthusiastic and inspirational! Hirstwood Training is a small but dedicated team, who loves to share its expertise in all things multi-sensory. It is passionate about our subject and it shows! Richard Hirstwood’s extensive experience of using and developing a multi-sensory room is based upon practical knowledge – giving him and the team the insight into what works, and more importantly, what doesn’t, in multi-sensory practice. Regular ‘handson’ sessions with adults and children also enable their team to maintain this level of excellent practice.

Both systems are supplied with two comprehensive training sessions. Following an installation or delivery of your system, you will be provided with initial familiarity handover training. This is followed by a further advanced follow-up training session when you are ready to move onto a higher level of expertise to help you get the most out of your omi system.

Do you need: • Bespoke in-house training? • ‘Hands-on’ coaching sessions? • Continued training & coaching input? • Consultancy to help develop a multi-sensory room? • To attend a unique, UK wide programme of training courses?
