CoWin: the groundbreaking and leading de-escalation solution
Worldwide, Recornect is setting the tone in psychiatry with innovative de-escalation solutions. The CoWin media wall is currently leading the trend toward less containment of clients in psychiatric units and an environment that is open, safe and healing. In practice, this has been shown to result in prevention of escalation and a faster recovery.
Recornect has already installed CoWin media walls at more than 85 locations in 9 different countries. In many cases, we were involved in the construction of a new psychiatric or custodial unit, so that the media walls could be installed flush with the walls which is the most aesthetic solution we offer. In some cases, for example very old or historic buildings, this is not possible but we still find an attractive and workable solution.
Highest security level
Every part of the CoWin media wall’s hardware has been developed to the highest security level. In practice, this means that the media wall is virtually indestructible and has no problem withstanding impact from very heavy objects or tools. Which is one of the reasons that the CoWin is so often installed in forensic psychiatric units.

Our experienced technical team has already supervised many hundreds of implementations and acquired ample international experience. So we can coordinate effortlessly with local installation specialists.
