It goes without saying that 2020 has been challenging for many companies. Here at Samboards our plans were disrupted, and we’ve spent time adapting to new ways of working. We’re delighted that the University of Gloucestershire have started using our Library squares and had an opportunity to demonstrate the products at a GE Aerospace wellbeing day before lockdown. Here are a few highlights from 2020 at Samboards:
Framework Agreement running until 2024 We now have a Framework Agreement in place with Alder Hey which runs until 2024, making Samboards products easy to purchase for NHS Trusts, Government departments and other organisations following government procurement guidelines. Contact Andy to find out more.
Library Squares bringing benefits to Home-schooling While schools were closed, we spent time working with 5 MBA students, to research using our Library Squares to support homeschooling.
The results were very positive with over 70% of users saying that concentration improved, and children were less distracted. We’re also receiving feedback from users, which you can see on our website.

Support for Dementia Care
Working in partnership with our local Care Home who are specialists in Dementia Care, we were able to carry out research using our Samboards. Again, the feedback was very positive, showing that the boards helped people to stay calm and reduced anxiety. They also helped people to stay focused and calm during zoom calls with relatives.
Following this research, we were able to adapt the design, making the boards thinner and lighter, using brighter colours. Samples of the latest version have now arrived, and we’re taking orders for delivery in the New Year. Contact Andy for more information.
Stirling University Dementia Care Unit are also evaluating our products, so we’ll report back on our work with Stirling in future news updates.
We’re looking forward to a positive start to 2021, with our products helping people in hospitals, care homes and schools to reduce anxiety, manage stress and maintain focus.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy, Prosperous 2021 From Samboards Sensory Products
