Cygnet Brunel were very excited to recently receive their order for an award winning motion activated projection system for adults with special needs.

The Omi Vista Mobii is a mobile motion-activated projection system, developed for adults with special needs, which can project on to tables and floors at the touch of a button. Awarded most Pioneering Technology & Outstanding Product in 2018, the Mobii has been recognised as delivering highly engaging visual activities that not only encourage physical and mental participation but provide many opportunities for social enjoyment and shared laughter.

The system has a whole host of functions including board games, competitive virtual sports such as basketball and air hockey, musical performance, interactive sounds, quizzes and also the ability to turn into a virtual dancefloor!

Cygnet Brunel in Bristol offers an extensive neuropsychiatric treatment, care and rehabilitation pathway which is unique in its ability to provide a dedicated pathway to meet the complex needs of service users within their care.

The team felt that the Mobii would be a perfect addition to the therapeutic offering provided at the service. Jasmine Todd, Head of Occupational Therapy at Cygnet Brunel, explains:

“We first saw this amazing technology at the OT Show 2021. We soon realised how this could help our service users’ rehabilitation; in language and communication skills, coordination and physical ability, socialisation and collaboration skills, positivity and emotional wellbeing.

“We are very hopeful that the interactive projector will help to increase physical effort/energy levels, as well as increasing social interaction, emotional wellbeing, sensory awareness and improve individual’s ability to share and enjoy group activities. We also hope that our service user led groups will be able to utilise this technology within their sessions.

“In the short time since the projector arrived it has already been a huge success. We have seen services users enjoy using this technology with their families, staff and others, encouraging movement, reading, following instructions and some harmless competition.

“We look forward to the next six months using this technology and aim to prove how this can be used to its full by all the service users and their multidisciplinary team.”
