Innovation

Flaghouse Inc. was established in 1954 and has developed into a worldwide organization doing around $25 million in deals every year. The organization began with one man offering banners to schools out of his vehicle's storage compartment; this man was named Morty Carmel. The organization transitioned into selling balls and other training gear. Flaghouse Inc. presently has two primary sales areas, one in Toronto, Canada, and the other in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey.

Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environments (MSE) are rooms that advantage numerous individuals because they are custom-fit to meet explicit people's needs, allowing the patient to feel great in their current circumstances. The recreations of sounds, sights, surfaces, smells, and movement provide stimulation and help clients adapt their responses to sensory stimulation and to advance education and therapy goals.

Snoezelen is now getting more well known. The organization has recently introduced the "biggest Snoezelen room" in Dubai.

The Pursuit of Equality

Inspiration

The historical lineage of Snoezelen is a long one. Starting in the last part of the 1970s, two Dutch specialists, Jan Hullsegge and Ad Verheul, experimented with a tactile tent at the DeHartenburg Institute. The underlying objective was to build happiness and tangible experience for those with mental disabilities. The consequence at the end of the week was overwhelmingly positive for both verbal and non-verbal patients.

After a concentrated support exertion, Joe Kewin, a ranking director, and his group worked with Rompa in the UK to plan a multi-faceted Snoezelen Center at Whittington Hall. Eventually, Snoezelen would be obtained by Flaghouse.

Like Cynthia Foley states, “Flaghouse Inc. is an organization working in quality hardware and projects serving actual training, amusement, uncommon requirements treatments, and schooling, trying to make the world unmistakably more available for everybody paying little mind to age or capacity.” For more than 60 years, Flaghouse Inc. has offered a wide range of gear and projects, particularly exceptional restrictive arrangements that can improve and inspire individuals' capacities.

Overall impact

Over time, this product has changed the way that special needs people are treated. This innovation's short-term effects are found through the evidence that suggests that these rooms are better for allowing people to feel included. Hence, not punishing them for their particular needs, but instead uplifting them and allowing them to feel welcome. This innovation helps bring society together and not make the patient feel punished for what they cannot control. As Cynthia Foley wisely states, "Snoezelen is important to level the playing field between the disadvantaged and neurotypical. By creating a helpful environment for the mentally ill, Snoezelen helps the mentally ill adjust themselves to wider society and helps health professionals deal with their particular issues."

Meanwhile, this product's long-term effects will help society change how they treat outbursts in people with special needs. Hopefully, instead of locked padded rooms, people will think of Snoezelen, the multi-sensory rooms that help calm special needs. The evidence suggesting that these innovations occurred is the increased sales growth in Snoezelen that Flaghouse Inc. has seen since purchasing the company.
