"It feels like a HUG?"
The HowdaHUG® and PetiteHUG® offer proprioceptive and vestibular input for children with sensory integration needs. And it is also enjoyed by typically developing peers. It can be used on the floor, for rocking and upright back support. It may also be used in different types of chairs , including classroom chairs. The HowdaHUG® can go everywhere with the child, because it can be rolled up and weighs only 1kg. The colourful seat comes in three sizes, to fit children 3 years old and up.
Some of the benefits of using the HowdaHUG® are:
Proprioceptive input: The HowdaHUG® provides deep pressure and proprioceptive input, which can help children with sensory processing challenges regulate their body's response to stimuli. This can lead to improved attention, focus, and body awareness.
Vestibular input: The HowdaHUG® can be used for rocking and spinning, providing vestibular input that can be calming or alerting, depending on the child's needs. This can help improve balance, coordination, and overall sensory regulation.
Postural support: The HowdaHUG® provides upright back support, which can help improve posture and prevent slouching. This can be particularly beneficial for children who have difficulty sitting still or maintaining an upright posture for extended periods.
Versatile use: The HowdaHUG® can be used on the floor for rocking, as well as in different types of chairs, including classroom chairs. This can make it a versatile tool for use in different environments, including classrooms, therapy rooms, and at home.
Portability: The HowdaHUG® is lightweight and can be rolled up, making it easy to transport and use wherever the child goes. This can make it a helpful tool for providing sensory support on-the-go.
The HowdaHUG® and PetiteHUG® provide deep pressure and vestibular input while also supporting proper posture and being versatile and portable. This can make them helpful tools for children with sensory integration needs, as well as typically developing peers who may benefit from additional sensory input or support.
