Comfortable, easy-to-clean stool utilizes thermo-sensitive fabrics to enable playful, therapeutic interaction between children and adults. At room temperature the stools appear one color, but a warm touch leaves temporary impressions of the hand/body in a dramatic new color. The prints last for 30-45 seconds before returning to the original color.
About NunoErin Products
NunoErin’s interactive furniture solutions offer multi-sensory experiences that awaken the human desire to touch, play, and explore. The company's heat-sensitive furniture uses responsive technology that relaxes, restores, and engages. The equipment enables children to visualize therapist instruction and desired outcomes, and provide real-time visual rewarding feedback – thus increasing their ability and desire to learn.
For children with hypertonicity of their hands, this equipment motivates them to open their hands, stretch those tight muscles, and in many cases truly see their entire handprint for the first time. The equipment visually rewards them for their efforts and inspires repetition – which over time lengthens flexors and strengthens extensors.
Through the simple act of touch, people can create and explore gestural printmaking with their hands and body. As heat is transferred from the body to each stool, a dramatic temporary print appears for several seconds and then gradually fades away.
