New visual timer!
Resetea has been designed for individuals who have difficulty conceptualising or managing time, or who benefit from visual cues and assistance with organising a sequence of daily tasks. It is designed to be useful for individuals with autism, learning disabilities, cognitive challenges and dementia; and is also effective in early childhood education. This device helps you to organise a sequence of tasks or activities, and to see how much time is left for finishing each activity.
Resetea visually demonstrates a linear sequence of tasks and uses lighting to demonstrate the passing of time through the tasks. You can create any sequence you would like by using the included templates along with your own pictures or symbols. It shows when a task is completed and when the next one starts, via illuminated LED lights which indicate the stage that the sequence is at in every moment. You can also use Resetea as a simple visual clock, by separating it into various increments of time and labeling the increments according to how much time has passed with each.
For many people, time is an abstract concept and can be difficult to conceptualise. This can lead to anxiety and disorientation across a person’s daily activities. Resetea allows users to experience time in a visual and linear way, which makes it easier to understand and helps to organise tasks more efficiently
What can I use Resetea for?
You can use Resetea for all kinds of activities or tasks that have a beginning and an end, or require a specific time for completion, between 1 and 60 minutes. You can program 1 activity up to a sequence of 12 different activities. Resetea is ideal for using at home, school, work, disability and older person care centres.
