Abilitations inflatable cushion provides varying degrees of stability for developing positioning and balance skills and trunk strength. Air can be added or released from the cushion with a standard athletic pump to produce different levels of stability--deflate for more stability and sensory input from the cushion’s filling; inflate for less stability (pump sold separately). The cushion is versatile for sitting or standing on, and has a vinyl exterior with a foam-bead filling for durability. Vinyl resists oil, has low moisture absorption, and is non-conductive. The cushion measures 12.0”/30.6cm in diameter, and may be suitable for some individuals on the autism spectrum and for special needs, early childhood, and elementary learning environments.
Special needs products are designed to help improve sensory processing, positioning and mobility, fine motor, and language and communication skills for students with learning challenges. Positioning products can help individuals improve gross motor, balance, active seating, and postural control skills, and strengthen core muscles.
