The EASY BOX and the PLUS BOX offer the RELAXATION CHANNEL, a 24-hour programme that accompanies life throughout the year, bringing the wellness provided by Nature, with its change of seasons, colours, emotions, into the care setting.
The programme schedule was created in collaboration with the care staff, taking into account the times that mark the various phases of the day: moments of rest, socialisation, nutrition and those dedicated to activities. The programme also includes a daily reminder of a specific colour, constant throughout the year, so as to encourage residents to recognise the day and offer an additional topic for socialisation between residents and care workers.
WITH THE RELAXATION CHANNEL ONE LIVES IMMERSED IN NATURE ALL YEAR ROUND, IN SYNERGY WITH THE SEASONS, WITHOUT THE NEED FOR OPERATORS.
It offers a different 24-hour programme every day, specially designed for the world of nursing homes.
It accompanies people in their activities throughout the day throughout the year, transporting what is happening outside into the enclosed spaces.
It is the fully automated solution that ensures that the best footage is chosen for each moment, without requiring any management or programming effort.
Each of the seven days of the week has a different schedule that is repeated within the current month, with a precise structure that facilitates time orientation. In addition, each day is inspired by a different colour tone, a colour that is mainly expressed in two precise time slots, at 9.30 a.m. and 3 p.m., throughout the course of the year, so that there is a daily appointment that helps to distinguish one day from another and is at the same time the subject of social relations.
The Relaxation Channel not only brings the seasonality of Nature into the facility, but also takes into account the basic principles of naturopathy to offer the greatest possible well-being at all times.
Films with activating colours support the morning activity phases, favouring artistic activities on some days and narrative activities on others. n the afternoon, predominantly green-coloured films are used, to rebalance and regenerate. In the evenings, cool-toned Nature scenes are planned, to promote relaxation and peaceful rest.
At the time of subscription, pdf files will be sent with the programming for the whole year, so that dementia social educators and therapists can prepare their activities according to the films proposed in the schedule.

BALANCING AND REGENERATING AFTERNOON
RELAXING AFTER DINNER, TO CONNECT TO ONE’S SPIRITUALITY
CALMING NIGHT, THE HYPNOTIC POWER OF WATER AT DUSK
Each theme lasts about 25 minutes, starting with the short sequence repeated 3 times (tot. 9′). n the short sequence, the fast cycle with which the images alternate, in fade-out, allows easy enjoyment even by people with severe cognitive difficulties: when attention is about to wane, the image is renewed while remaining coherent. Once people have become attuned to the images, we move on to the long sequence (tot. 12’30”): here time dilates, the scenarios that make up the theme follow one another at a faster pace. People are induced to slow down, realigning the central nervous system to natural cycles (see Method). Finally, to allow the benefits of that particular theme to settle in, 1 or 2 individual living pictures are offered (tot. 3-4 minutes).
Attention is then captured by the repetition of the 3 short sequences, deep connection is made through the long sequence, and in conclusion 1 or 2 individual films allow time to slow down further and the benefits of the theme to take root, allowing a moment of decompression that facilitates conversation and prepares for the next theme.
