The Therapeutic Benefits of Using an IRiS Qube for Sensory Treatment

10 Dec

Sensory equipment has been used for many years now as a type of therapy to treat individuals of all ages suffering from sensory disabilities. All products are focussed on improving, stimulation and developing various life skills and give the user a sense of empowerment and control when using them.

IRiS QubeThe IRiS Qube specifically promotes the development of cause and effect skills as well as further helping with the colour and picture recognition abilities that are used in storytelling. All these interactivity benefits combined make the individuals being treated feel more confident and allow them to be a little bit more imaginative.

One of the unique elements of the IRiS Qube is that it does not rely on a cable or location to be effective. The product can be place in any room of choice to ensure that the user is in an environment where they feel safe and comfortable and can get the most out of their experience.

Each side of the IRiS Qube is a different colour and when rolled, the colour facing up is announced through an external speaker. When used together with the IRiS Listener, which consists of a range of wireless sound products, the outside speaker will shout out which ever colour the cube lands on when tossed. So if the Qube lands on red, the word ‘red’ will be heard from the speaker.

What makes this feature even more special is that the voices can be customised and used to record anyone’s voice or sound clips, making it more personal and familiar to the user. The Qube itself also features clear sleeves on either side which can be used to insert various pictures to promote further visual stimulation.
