Sensory & Therapy Products
Sensory and Therapy Products
Sometimes we need a little assistance when it comes to balancing all the overwhelming sensory and environmental information we’re surrounded by on a daily basis. Thankfully, there are a number of sensory and therapy products available that can help us develop the ability to process and respond to these types of stimuli so that it becomes more manageable. These sensory and therapy products activate our senses of vision, touch, hearing, and movement to assist with integrating and organizing responses.
If you’re interested in learning more about these helpful products, visit Lake Superior Medical Equipment today! We have two convenient locations in Duluth and Cloquet, MN. We have a team of highly trained staff standing by who are ready and willing to assist you in finding the sensory and therapy products that’ll suit you best.
Weighted vests are great for providing proprioceptive input, which assists with focusing and remaining calm in stressful situations with sensory overload. These vests are designed to be extremely comfortable with a low profile so they don’t attract unnecessary attention. As a matter of fact, most people won’t even notice you’re wearing a weighted vest. You’ll enjoy a number of handy features, including interior pockets with removable weights.
Handwriting (Pencil Grips)
Pencil grips are excellent for improving handwriting, reducing writing fatigue, and encouraging proper grip. These products are soft, comfortable, and highly grippable. You’ll experience useful guidance to use the proper position required for better handwriting and increased comfort. Pencil grips are ideal for young students who tend to write too softly or grip too tightly. Users will notice a reduction in hand fatigue caused by writing. They come in a variety of colors, too!
Seating (Therapy Balls & Cushions)
There are several wonderful seating options that provide extra comfort, such as therapy balls and cushions. The use of therapy balls provides a fun and effective way to strengthen the core muscles and promote vestibular therapy. In addition, therapy balls are great to improve posture and sitting habits. Air-filled cushions make great booster seats in smaller chairs and are also good for filtering overstimulation while offering a constructive outlet for movement while standing and sitting.
