Preventing Compulsory Incarceration

Practice has shown that isolation is a traumatizing experience for a client. Traditional separation areas are designed to give as few stimilu as possible. Research has shown that if no stimulation, distraction or some form of self-direction is possible, this can lead to sensory deprivation. As a result, further disruption is lurking and it becomes more difficult to get in touch with the client and continue the treatment.

The transition from the traditional separation area to a normal hospital ward is also challenging in practice, which means there is a chance of a relapse and serious disruptions. The Smart Touch solution offers support to clients, to make the isolation as short and humanely as possible. The Smart Touch media wall therefore seamlessly complies with the Inclusions Field Standard, which has been drawn up by the Mental Health Care Netherlands and TNO.
