The vestibular movement that the user can achieve with the Sky Sailor gives enough soft stimuli that they can engage in other activities such as ball throwing or picking up items off the ground. The two side flaps run the entire length of the body, encasing the user from shoulders while allowing for the free use of the arms for bilateral coordination and motor planning activities.
The padded matt within the swing is effortlessly clean and consists of a soft and semi-flexible foam that can bend slightly with the weight of the user. The Sky Sailor assists with primitive reflexes and tonic extension. The Sky Sailor swing uses the user’s body weight to create a weighted pressure to calm them, especially helpful for those with Sensory Processing Disorder.
This piece of equipment can be used in both the prone and supine positions. It can assist with calming overstimulated clients and help them focus on other tasks.
