Tye Farrow with dozens of haptic sensation pads across his body, translating musical rhythms into touch. Part of Prof Amir Amedi’s labs in the Baruch Ivcher Institute For Brain, Cognition & Technology and The Ruth and Meir Rosental Brain Imaging Center at the Reichman University, Tel Aviv, Israel.

The innovation will be installed in Farrow’s SZMC Helmsley ‘butterfly’ cancer centre’s CT suite and radiation treatment rooms; used to reduce patient stress and anxiety through multi-sensory installations to improve patient outcomes.

The aim is to use these technologies to further understand body-mind interactions, and ultimately to enhance neuro-wellness; a core strategy of Farrow’s work, leading to the exploration of further collaborations.
