Kirton HealthcareIt is a well known fact that all good things come in small packages; the new Sensory-in-a-Suitcase Mini from SensoryPlus is no different! It houses a wealth of interactive tools for imaginative therapy, play and educational activities just like its bigger counterpart, but in a smaller package for easy portability and will be launched at Naidex National 2013 on Stand E120.

Its uniqueness is its diversity. The suitcase contains a wide range of sensory equipment, from UV reactive items through to the popular tactile Dress-a-Pillar and Theraputties, with musical experiences coming from the Clatter-Pillar and SensoryPlus MP3 Player for you to download your own music.

Its biggest benefit, of course, is the compact size, making it highly portable and ideal for therapists, parents, teachers, activity co-ordinators and carers who need to take the sensory tools to the individual to provide them with an all-round sensory experience. It is available at a special introductory price of £745 (eligible for VAT exemption) and contains: a Space Projector, Vibrating Snake, UV Chalkboard and Chalk, Mini Shadow Board, UV Torch, Glow Gloves, UV Roller Shaker, LED Light Ball, Moodpod, Soft, Medium and Strong Theraputty, Tactile Paper Pack, UV Paper Pack, 5 Boomwhackers, Clatter-Pillar, De-stress Remedy Roller, SensoryPlus MP3 Player with 2 Speakers and Dress-a-Pillar.

David Payne, Sensory Product Manager at SensoryPlus, said: “We are delighted to launch the Sensory-in-a-Suitcase Mini at Naidex National! Sensory environments encourage play, exploration, interaction and better communication; when sensory equipment can be taken to an individual who would benefit from it, it helps to improve the quality of life for those who cannot come to the environment themselves, for example in day care or respite centres. The equipment in the suitcase can also be used to encourage interaction between siblings and friends of children with special needs, making it extremely versatile.”

SensoryPlus and Kirton Healthcare will also be sponsoring the KideQuip Zone at Naidex National this year, featuring a number of prominent speakers and a specially designed sensory area so visitors to the stand can see the equipment for themselves.
