Multi-sensory design and distraction imagery: Alexander Hamilton, Dr Oli Mival and DKAV
Building on the success of the ‘Secret Garden’ installation at the current RHSC, three rehabilitation rooms have been identified across the new RHSC and DCN. These rooms are suitable for immersive interactive technology aimed at enhancing therapeutic benefit. A team headed by artist Alex Hamilton and Dr Oli Mival from the Napier University’s Centre for Interactive Design are developing a sophisticated technology platform which will enable clinical staff and patients to engage with a number of apps through interactive projection. The team are also developing a projection system for many treatment rooms throughout the hospital which will offer tailored video projections for interest and distraction whilst patients are undergoing a test, examination or procedure.
