Master thesis





an attempt to bridge the gap between technology and differently abled people

The Multi-sensory room is a place where differently abled people can retreat. Here, they are in charge.

To provide the snoezelaar with more autonomy and to enrich the Multi-sensory experience, I’m adding an invisible technological layer to the Multi-sensory room. This way a person with limitations can also enjoy the benefits technology has to offer, without having to learn new competences or skills.

Within the interactive Multi-sensory room the snoezelaar interacts intuitively with a known and trusted environment that possesses the necessary intelligence to interpret behaviour and is able to respond accordingly along with the supervisor.
