Stimulators, Photic, Visual, Relaxation/Therapeutic

Definition : Devices designed to provide visual stimuli to patients. These stimulators are used for patient relaxation and/or to facilitate therapeutic treatments. They typically consist of light-emitting or glowing devices that deliver variable types of visual stimuli using a variety of different sources and configurations. Types of light-emitting stimulators may include devices that glow when illuminated with black light and show images (e.g., stars, planets); cylindrical tubes filled with bubbles to allow patients to track motion; and devices that show images that are constantly changing (e.g., an aquarium, dropping balls). Relaxation/therapeutic visual stimulators are intended to help users (i.e., disabled children, patients with brain damage) learn how to improve their interactions with the environment. These stimulators are also used to provide psychiatric therapy to depressed patients.

Many factors affecting health care today have created the "perfect storm." Rising costs, reimbursement issues, a nationwide shortage of nurses and, most significantly, the need for hospitals to improve quality of care all impact patient care. But these challenges can also be seen as an opportunity to return to the fundamentals of people caring for other people—using technology as the enabler of change.
