When it comes to a sensory environment, a whole host of apparatuses are needed in order to create an area that is stimulating or calming (depending on the individual requirements of the user). One of the items found in many of these sensory rooms and environments is a bubble tube.
Bubble tubes used in a sensory environment are a unique accessory which will create a calming effect on the user, however they also encourage and stimulate interaction – an important function for many people who suffer from issues in terms of sensory development. This happens, but creating constantly moving and color changing bubbles – these have the dual effect of being both eye catching and soothin
Using a bubble tube in a sensory room will immediately catch the attention of your patient or patients. Those who suffer from Sensory Processing Disorder will benefit greatly from the tube and its colored moving bubbles, as they will help to build on their visual development and communications skills.
With the latest developments in technology – using LED lights, bubble tubes from Experia are surprisingly quiet – with the only sound that is released being the soft sound of the bubbling water. LED bulbs, unlike traditional bulbs are long lasting, and also more energy efficient. There are a whole host of sizes of these tubes available, up to 200mm in diameter. Portable versions are even available – which mean that you can create a soothing sensory environment if you need to travel somewhere.
There are a number of reasons why bubble tubes are beneficial for those who have a range of sensory and developmental difficulties these include:
When it comes to bubble tubes, the main consideration is where they will fit into your home or establishment. You need to make sure that you get the right size so that there is room for other sensory equipment. To find out more then speak to Experia today and see how we can help you.
