The Sensory Sensations ‘S’ shaped timer has two coloured oil droplets that mesmerisingly drip down internal ramps in opposing directions.
There are several therapeutic benefits with oil drip timers. The soothing and rhythmic dripping motion can act as a distraction to calm anxiety during periods of sensory overload. Concentrating on the movement of the oil droplets down the ramps takes the focus away from emotions and stresses and onto a quiet, stress free activity.
It can be used as a timing device for short term activities such as teeth brushing. The timer takes a few minutes to empty from top to bottom. Then turn it upside down to start it all over again.
Oil drip motion timers can also be used for visual tracking purposes. Watch as the oil drips down and track it as it flows down the ramps to the bottom of the vessel.
The S shaped oil drip liquid motion timer is made from hard plastic, clear water and coloured oils. The oil is a different viscosity to the water, creating the non soluble droplets. So not only is the oil liquid motion timer a calming, anxiety reducing strategy, it also demonstrates scientific principles.
The S shaped timer comes in two colours – blue and orange, and is in an attractive window faced gift box. The blue S shaped liquid oil timer has red and blue oils and the orange S shaped oil timer has green and pink coloured oils. The S shaped oil liquid motion timer is part of the Sensory Sensations range of therapeutic products for those with special needs. Perfect for assisting with anxiety management and for calming to reduce the effects of sensory overload stresses.
