Inflatable shapes provide opportunities for weight bearing on dynamic surfaces. The instability of the surface prevents 'fixing' and activates core and proximal joint muscles leading to a balance of postural stability with mobility. Each shape offers a variety of therapeutic opportunities.
The Mountain and the Hill (ramps) are irresistible challenges with various anti gravity demands. Climbing up shifts weight to the lower body so that
the upper trunk and shoulder girdle don't require heavy weight bearing, while crawling down increases the weight bearing demands on the upper
extremities. They are versatile additions to any treatment space, sensory motor gym or gross motor play space.
The Hot Dog (inflated barrel and log) provide endless options for total body movement combining sensory motor experiences with spatial components.
