In the last few months students from the SintLucas college AudioVisual Design have contributed to the project ‘a window to the world’. In this project students created relax videos that could assist psychiatric patients in their recovery process when they are placed in seclusion. This has results in four videos that have been added to the theme library of Recornect.
On march 27 the clinical center Kristal in Nootdorp (NL) was officially opened. Kristal is a healthcare center for people with a mental disability and (suspected) psychiatric problems. It is the first of its kind in the Netherlands with its use of an extra secure room (EBK). The EBK includes a communication wall through which the patient is able to use the interactive screen to contact staff and family and use various other applications to relax, distract and provide control to the patient. The system will be expanded with new apps that are tailored towards the individual needs of the patients within this setting.
