Benefits of Balance
Established 10 years ago, the Indi ‘Spinning Balance’ Board has served many purposes from play therapy to physiotherapy, occupational therapy, core strength training, teaching and much more.This all rounder balance board has such a diverse range of applications with so many benefits on so many levels.
The biggest emphasis of this board is its amazing use on the integration of the brain hemispheres and how effectively it improves the brain processing speed through learning. The Indi Board activates integration of the vestibular, visual, kinaesthetic, and tactile senses.
It is an incredible development aid which supports cognitive redirection of neural pathways, it increases motor skills with better control and better understanding of the functionality of the body. The Indi Board has received great feedback on behavioural improvement, where kids have become more enthusiastic and focused with homework. It has supported improvement in reading as sight becomes sharper as well as improvement in eye-tracking.
When children use the Indi Board, they are given the tools to develop physical core strength in an exciting way, all at the same time developing emotional balance which allows them to better deal with emotional stress as well as emotional self control. The younger the child’s age, the more beneficial this learning tool is for development as they learn to mould these attributes in to balance while the child is at their most malleable.
Collaborative Learning Table
Through educational focus, we wanted to give this amazing learning tool a real integral function in the classroom environment, so we created the Collaborative Learning Table.
The Collaborative Learning Table is designed at a height and shape that allows kids to stand on the Indi Board and work at the table in an interactive group. This encourages and unifies communication through movement - keeping the kids in a balanced, creative and analytical problem solving mind frame – thinking outside the box. The kids are less distracted and more eager to focus on what is in front of them.
Working together as a group, while keeping the body in motion, makes learning an exciting process and children fully engage in their activities. They are more involved in their learning process which allows them the freedom, the courage and the self assured confidence to ‘bring something to the table’.
