Forensic psychiatry

Within forensic psychiatry, working safely is obviously central. The treatment threshold this creates for some clients can be significantly reduced through the use of CoWin™ and GRASP™, Recornects' globally proven de-escalation solution.  

The CoWin™ media wall, in combination with our proprietary designed GRASP™ software platform opens up complete new treatment possibilities within forensic psychiatry and is currently widely deployed worldwide as a safe and reliable work dynamic.  

The CoWin™ media wall meets the highest safety level (EN-ISO-1056 standard) and can be seamlessly built into new and existing walls.

Shouldn't patients in crisis actually receive as few stimuli as possible?

Patients in crisis often still need contact, autonomy and control. CoWin meets these needs in a powerful but safe way.

Why should we reward someone who has been violent with a media wall?

When violence is caused by loss of control, the challenge is to regain peace as quickly as possible so that contact becomes possible again. CoWin supports this, in a safe way. It is our experience that departments experience great benefit from quicker de-escalations in the event of crises.

Can a patient just get on the Internet? Or make phone calls?

No. An open Internet connection and the ability to make calls are functionalities that can only be assigned by staff. This is true for almost all applications, by the way.

What does CoWin™ cost?

That depends on many factors: for example whether you choose CoWin™ or CoWin™ Play™, the projected location and how the media wall is to be installed, the number of CoWin™ systems, etc. The more concrete your request, the better able we are to provide you with an accurate quote. You are very welcome to get in touch with one of our sales specialists, completely without obligation.

How strong is the CoWin™ media wall?

The CoWin™ de-escalation solution meets the highest security requirements for psychiatry, forensic psychiatry and the judiciary. The media wall is fitted with more or less indestructible armoured glass that can withstand even being struck hard with a sledgehammer. This makes CoWin™ an extremely safe and reliable solution, particularly for acute and forensic psychiatry and the judiciary.
