The Bolster Swing helps to integrate vestibular and proprioceptive sensations into therapy, promoting balance and body posture. With its linear movement, the bolster challenges balance, and core strength. The user can straddle the bolster alone or with the assistance of a therapist either in front of behind.
The Bolster Swing provides an uninterrupted smooth swinging motion, which can be incredibly calming for over-stimulated users; it can also encourage healthy flexion patterns. The user can sit on the bolster swing and use their legs to pump, providing pop input and stimulating bilateral integration and motor planning.
The Trapeze Bar strengthens the upper extremities, helping to correct posture and promote motor planning skills as well as encouraging hand-eye coordination. The Trapeze Bar supports users with low muscle tone, autism, sensory processing disorder, and hyperactivity. This tool achieves the strengthening of the arms, hands, shoulders, and trunk through gripping, body twisting, and lifting of one’s weight.
