Personal Space Any Place

Modernization has brought with it an unprecedented level of urbanization. For the first time in history, the majority of mankind lives in cities. Daily life features more interactions with a greater number of people than ever before. Sometimes we all want to have moments to ourselves. Moments where our personal space is...more personal, more private, more peaceful.

Some of us want these moments often, some only want them every once in a while. Our reasons for wanting them are as varied as our fingerprints (ok, maybe not that varied). Some want to focus on work or a good book. Some want to meditate or nap (or meditate and end up taking a nap). Some have conditions, ADHD or Sensory Processing Disorder, for example, that make it easier to become distracted or overstimulated by things going on around us; then the desire to take a moment can feel like, or even become, a need.

Whatever your reasons for wanting or needing to take a moment, however often you want those moments, you and those moments are why Sensory Shield exists. We are all together in our desire to sometimes be...a little less together; to sometimes take a moment for ourselves.


Our Mission

At Sensory Shield, we want you to be as comfortable as possible in your space. Our mission is to provide simple, affordable ways to help reduce physical discomfort and emotional distress caused by a lack of personal space or privacy, overstimulation, sensory processing issues, and other conditions, to encourage understanding, and to promote healthy emotional connections.


We'd like you to be a part of the adventure!

First up, a partition to use anywhere, but we are designing it specifically for use on airplanes. Why would you want one (or two)? Check out the cards below. One card shows reasons given to us by airline employees and travelers; the other card shows reasons given to us by people with specific sensitivities. We are in the prototype design stage and we are designing this for you! We've already altered the design to include access to the armrest and have made other design changes as a result of your comments to us. Please join the conversation and see regular updates on our Facebook page.
