After you've read Active Baby, Healthy Brain, the idea of a peanut-shaped Gymnic Physio Roll makes perfect sense. In that book, the author explains how using an exercise and therapy ball, with its inclination towards instability, will strengthen your baby's core muscles, body awareness, balance, and attention. You can use another exercise ball, but we like the idea of using the Gymnic Physio Roll.
Because of its unique shape, the Gymnic Physio Roll will move in only one direction, providing unparalleled security and stability. This stability makes using the Physio Roll less daunting for new parents. The center dip that holds any rider safe within its contoured "saddle" can also morph into a trusty steed for siblings when the baby is napping. And if your older child needs a bit of therapy, the Physio Roll is an ideal resource for balance, strengthening, and proprioceptive activities. In fact, the Gymnic brand is one of the most popular brands used by therapists. With a grooved surface for better grip, Physio Roll will hold up to 270 pounds!
Vestibular stimulation is so important. Rock your baby gently on the Gymnic Physio Roll. This is a great way to help him learn to organize the sensory input he receives all day long. Try deflating the ball for the very young baby, and always keep safety first.
6-12 Months and older:
As your baby gets stronger, gently increase the intensity of his “workout.” Keep it at a level that is fun and interesting to him. Vestibular stimulation is still essential, so make sure you work it in every day. As always, prioritize safety!
The double ball design of Physio Roll makes it a valuable tool for several purposes. Physio Rolls are easier to use than traditional gym balls as most of the movement is limited to forward and back, providing maximum stability during exercise. The wide saddle shape offers additional support so users of all ages can exercise in a safe way. The therapist can sit on the ball and control the patient’s movements. Physio Roll has become a classic in the physiotherapy practice since many years: it is ideal for those who have coordination and balance difficulties, for disabled people as well as elderly people. Also suitable for activities with children.
