Copenhagen, Denmark (June 16, 2020) — 14 patients over 18 years with one or more psychiatric diagnoses on a closed section at Psychiatric Center Glostrup in the Capital Region of Denmark have tested ArtPlayer’s mood calming art streaming service on a large screen in the centers sensory room.
The purpose of the quantitative study of the effect of ArtPlayer was to investigate if ArtPlayer could function as an offering in the centers sensory room, in which they want patients to achieve peace and increased mental well-being.
Before and after results of mental recovery showed an average improvement from 5.5 to 7.14 on a 0-10 scale. That is, from how patients feel right before entering the sensory room to how they feel right after watching ArtPlayer for 30 min. in the sensory room.
Moreover, 12 out of the 14 patients found that ArtPlayer is a good addition to the sensory room. Especially, ArtPlayer made the patients feel calm, relaxation and contemplation.
Ditte Marie Hellberg, Occupational Therapist, Psychiatric Center Glostrup: “When I see the charts of the results of our ArtPlayer patient monitoring, I think it’s quite positive and I believe it could be a valuable addition to the centers sensory room.”
Morten Kryger, Managing Director, ArtPlayer: “The positive calming effects of using ArtPlayer in healthcare environments are certainly not new to us, such as reducing perceived waiting time and restless behavior in emergency departments, reducing fear of a blood test and fear of going to dentist etc. However, the cost-saving potential in mental health services using ArtPlayer on patients with psychiatric diagnoses instead of giving them expensive calming medicine could be the greatest!”
