Common sense, innovative products specially designed and manufactured by The Sensory Company for you and your users


This is how our Sensory Theatre™ was recently very neatly described by one ecstatic customer:

"Our new Sensory Theatre is like a blank sheet of paper, upon which we can create unique, exciting, educational environments of video projection, sound and ever changing colour in seconds to suit each individuals needs. At last our pupils have the power to take themselves anywhere they want to go, or do anything they desire. It empowers and gives them choice at the touch of their favourite switch"

We couldn't have described it better ourselves. There are now literally no limitations, thanks to our Sensory Theatre technology. Please read on for more information on our breakthrough technology.


The original concept of the sensory room began in Holland in the late seventies. They were designed for relaxation whilst allowing exploration in a safe environment. Since then, these rooms have changed dramatically and more emphasis has tended to be placed on interaction, learning and offering the users control over their surroundings. These rooms are generally known as a multisensory environment, multisensory studio, multi sensory theme studio or Snoezelen room and usually allow the user to switch various equipment on and off, offering limited interaction.


Your new Sensory Theatre will give you a new concept and a giant leap forward in sensory room technology, we have even designed it so you can use it in your pool area and you will be streets ahead of many other establishments in your area. Our Sensory Theatre utilises our already established, patented wire free technology, allowing infinite possibilities with the added benefit of no unsightly and perhaps unsafe cables around the room.

Praised by OFSTED (the UK educational inspection body) on many occasions, the core of your new Sensory Theatre will be our ‘Simple' point and click Windows based interface - this will give you complete control, versatility, flexibility and empower you with an armoury to effectively teach your users as individuals or as part of a group.


Perhaps you simply need to create a calm, relaxing environment. Within seconds your Sensory Theatre can be just that. And what about users interacting with individual items in the room? Again very easy to do.... but let’s make things really interesting.

Let’s create a trip to a distant tropical island, the bright sun high in the sky, the sound of the light blue water gently kissing the shore, the smell of coconut in the breeze whilst the gentle wind gently tussles your hair, nothing but beautiful white sand can be seen for miles - can you believe you have created this environment without leaving your room?

But wait someone rolled the DST Magic Cube onto the picture of the airplane - you're now instantly experiencing flying in a Bi-Plane, with the sights, sounds, smells and wind in your hair.

Another one of your users has now selected the picture of the sea – you’re all now out swimming with dolphins with the smell of the sea penetrating your nostrils.

The only limit is your imagination and it's all extremely easy to do - what will you think of?


Our Sensory Theatre technology provides you with the ultimate teaching tool. You can improve your users switching skills, motor skills, colour, number and shape recognition, develop cause effect and social interaction skills, stimulate through a variety of forms or just simply help your users relax. You can base projects on the National Curriculum or simply use the equipment for topic work or relaxation.

Maybe your room needs to be stimulating or perhaps you want the best of both worlds and you want your room to be used for stimulation as well as relaxation. The good news with our system is that versatility comes as standard and the choice is now yours. You can use the same equipment for people of all ages and abilities, for whatever activity you choose. Therefore, you do not have to invest more money in additional equipment to suit people with differing needs.


Our DST product range was specifically designed for you to simply and effectively teach people with learning disabilities. Add to this our revolutionary Simple DST Multimedia Windows Based interface, and you now have an extremely powerful combination. Our software based interface was expertly written by our own software engineers to meet the demands of special needs teachers, parents and carers like you.

We have ensured our Sensory Theatre technology natively knows what all the products in your sensory room are used for and uses terms widely known and used by care professionals. The combination of this as well as listening to the needs of the customer is the secret to its extreme effectiveness and provides you with a surprisingly simple, yet very powerful resource.

Our experience and feedback from our customers shows that our system is so simple to understand, within 10 minutes, even if you have very limited computer skills, you will be well on your way to creating exciting, interactive learning environments. Our other customers have told us it really is that easy to use.

By comparison, some other systems available make use of products primarily designed for use in discos, not in a sensory room. This is made worse by controlling the disco lights using software which was again designed for the disco industry. These systems produce varied results at the expense of much greater complexity, as they were never designed to be used in a learning environment.


Another major consideration with other systems available (like those using disco type software) is a lot of the equipment used is totally dependant on the computer. At first this does not seem a major issue, but it is soon realised that taking away the computer will cause the equipment to do very little if anything at all, offering very little in educational value. Problems with the computer or software could mean re-arranging your classes for the week.

On the contrary, every item that makes up our Sensory Theatre™ is designed as a learning tool in its own right, and is totally independent of the computer. All the products will function as learning tools whether the computer is there or not. Furthermore, our products will also interact with each other irrespective of having a computer or not. Perhaps the carer / teacher doesn't require the extra features provided by the computer today (or is a technophobe), wanting only simple interaction... not a problem in our Sensory Theatre™.


NO. Our philosophy on all products we manufacture is if you need a training course to use it, it is far too difficult to use. Our Engineers training ensures they make everything as simple to use as possible. Our software is so intuitive and simple that you will be using it after a short familiarisation session (approximately 10 minutes).


We have created many new products and designed them for use in your exciting new environment. Our DST Aroma Panel, DST Wind Machine, DST LED Bubble Tube, DST LED Fibre Optic Lightsource and various other DST Effects provide stimulation through your smell, touch, hearing, and sight senses.
