Bubble tubes are a key piece of sensory equipment that plays a vital role in sensory development and feature in a wide number of sensory rooms or environments and there are many sensory benefits of a bubble tube. Bubble tubes create constantly moving color changing bubbles which can both sooth ad catch the eye. We have a range of controllers – these are our iRiS Talkers.
Bubble tubes have a special ability to be both attention-grabbing and mesmerizing, but also calming and soothing. Sufferers of a variety of sensory disorders can benefit from a bubble tube as they are a great way to encourage visual development and communication skills.

This results in a calming effect which also draws the attention of the user. This effect helps promote visual stimulation and encourages touch through faint vibration.
