Sensory pleasures: Music and lights give new meaning to hospital therapy.

Luke Smallwood, a patient at Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham, gets to grips with facilities at a new sensory room opened at the hospital yesterday. The six-year-old is playing on a plastic bubble tube, which can change colour at the push of a button. Patients will be able to experience a therapeutic environment with relaxing music and lights to stimulate the senses. The pounds 15,000 room was funded by walkers on the BRMB Walkathon in the summer.
