Tight on space, have limited resources, or after a sensory experience that’s accessible to everyone? A sensory trolley is your portable, all-in-one sensory solution.
Sensory spaces are all about engaging and soothing the senses, helping users to relax, self-regulate, and improve their holistic development. And the good news is, you can still get all the benefits of multisensory stimulation without setting up a dedicated room. Let’s explore why portable sensory could be the right choice for you…
PORTABLE SENSORY EQUIPMENT – IS IT THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR YOU?
No space/ budget for a dedicated sensory room?
If space and/or budget are limited, setting aside an entire room for sensory therapy is not always an option. A portable trolley addresses these issues by combining a select range of popular sensory items into one streamlined unit- a small footprint, with a big impact.
Do your users have limited mobility?
For sectors such as aged care and health care, it’s common for individuals to be bedridden, incapacitated, or living with limited mobility. In this instance, a portable sensory solution is the most practical and flexible solution. It’s simple to wheel from room to room, easily fits through doorways, and switches on with a single plug socket.
Would you like to offer sensory therapy across a range of locations?
A portable trolley makes sensory therapy accessible to everyone, without the costly task of installing a sensory space across multiple wards or buildings. In a hospital for example, a sensory trolley can be easily rotated between waiting rooms, treatment rooms, or various wards.

WHICH SENSORY ITEMS SHOULD YOU INCLUDE ON YOUR TROLLEY?
Select 1 x Interactive Tube…
Option 1 – Bubble Tube
Bubble tubes are great for all ages, providing visual, auditory, and tactile stimulation. Users can watch the mesmerising combination of bubbles and lighting, hear the soothing sound of bubbling water, and feel the gentle, rhythmic vibrations of the tube.
Option 2 – Waterless Colour Tube
For sterile environments where ongoing water maintenance is not appropriate or practical, we recommend a Waterless Colour Tube. Gentle vibrations, changing colours, and moving patterns create a calming effect and help reduce sensory overload.
Select 1 x Interactive Wall Panel…
Option 1 – Infinity Mirror Panel
With its mesmerising tunnel of lights, the Infinity Mirror Panel uses visual and auditory engagement to help teach cause and effect, visual tracking, and colour recognition.
Option 2 – Colour Blending Panel
This Colour Blending Panel combines colours and sound effects to teach cause and effect and colour recognition, plus create a relaxing ambience.
Option 3 – Bubble Panel
A blend of colour, sound, and motion, our Bubble Panel boosts focus, reduces stress, encourages self-regulation, and promotes social interaction.
Option 4 – Rhapsody Panel
Watch sounds come to life with a visual display that responds to clapping, talking and music. This panel is great for assisting with speech therapy and encouraging social interaction.
Note you can adjust the volume, brightness, speed, and mode on each panel, so it’s an enjoyable experience for both sensory seekers and sensory avoiders.
Select Your Sensory Add-Ons…
Option 1 – Fibre Optics & Light Source
A fantastic visual and tactile sensory experience, fibre optic strands help with relaxation, improve sensory integration, boost fine motor skills, and encourage interaction.
Option 2 – Wireless Colour Controller
Our 8-color Wireless Colour Controller lets you cycle between 8 different colours at the touch of a button. We recommend adding this to your sensory trolley to encourage interaction and ensure your sensory products are accessible for users with fine/gross motor skill difficulties.
Option 3 – Spinning Projector Set
A Spinning Projector provides a soothing visual display that helps reduce anxiety, promotes self-regulation, and improves focus, memory-building, and tracking skills.
Option 4 – Infinity Wall Mirror
This wall-mounted mirror stimulates the visual system, promotes colour recognition, and encourages self-awareness. It also functions as a regular mirror when the lights are off. Please note- if those using the trolley are living with dementia, we discourage the use of mirrors- see Sensory Spaces For Seniors.
