Abstract: According to census 2001, it is estimated that over 21million people in India are suffering from one or the other kind of disability. The mentally challenged people are nearly 10.3% of the disabled people. As per the Census 2011, In India out of the 121 Cr population, 2.68 Cr persons are ‘disabled’ which is 2.21% of the total population. This is quite a huge percentage. The snoezelen therapy is now effectively being used for the development of the mentally challenged people. The mentally challenged people cannot communicate with others comfortably. They suffer from behavioral disturbances. This often kills a mentally challenged person which leads him to resentment. They may get into depression when they are alone and often feel disturbed and cannot come out of this state by themselves. One way to get them out of their depression is to provide them some entertainment in the form of music or by providing some colors appear in front of them. The bubble tube also provides multisensory stimulation and cures the people who are uffering from initial stages of dementia. The snoezelen therapy is now being used for curing the people suffering from autism and other developmental disorders such as dementia and brain injuries. This concept is being used in many fields such as schools, hospitals and in many places. Ultimately the snoezelen bubble tube will be useful to provide entertainment to every person. The snoezelen bubble tube will be a very useful product and as this is developed taking economic factors into consideration, it is cost effective and is affordable to everyone.
