Sensory labyrinth for handicapped children

A new playing module is mounted on the playground of Ilizarov park. It is a sensory labyrinth for handicapped children. The opening of the labyrinth was dedicated to the International Day of Peace. A sponsor of the project is the “EKAMED” company, a long-standing partner of the Ilizarov Centre. The labyrinth construction is accessible for children of different age and capacities including those on wheel-chairs. This playground is a part of the Centre’s concept of so-called “Friendly environment”. The idea is to give as much comfort to patients during their treatment in the clinic as possible, to create a home-like atmosphere for children, to distract them from stress and to stimulate rehabilitation and social adaptation.
