Four vibrating foot ‘shakers’. One person can use up to four foot shakers at once. The shakers are used by gently placing the ball of a bare foot on one shaker and the heel of the foot on another. The shakers are not designed to take the weight of a person so a certain amount of care must be taken.
Two vibrating hand ‘shakers’. These are used by placing either the palm of the hand or one finger gently on the spindle. These are not designed to be weight bearing
Mixer: routes the desired signals from musical instruments to the shakers
Limiters: these prevent excessive signal levels being sent to the shakers; again this is to safely control the amount of vibration which is experienced by the user
Power amplifiers: these amplify the signal from the mixer to provide power to drive the shakers
Good to know
The system is used within a raised stage. This is purely to allow users to place their feet comfortably upon the shakers, which are approximately 400mm high:
We deliver, install and remove the equipment completely free of charge. All you need to provide is space for it to live for the duration of the loan; ideally a practice room, small classroom or performance space approximately 3m x3m. The staging area can be reduced to around 2m x 3m for even smaller rooms.
A music teacher is available to work with you and can travel to visit you for several sessions to support staff in using the system or to work directly with users.
When the system is set up in a new venue, the vibration of the shakers must be measured to ensure that the vibration is within safe limits
The shakers can be used at floor level as shown here but this may become tiring after a while, although the head of the shaker can be tilted to a comfortable angle:
