Gymnic Physio Roll - Red
Gymnic Physio Roll
After you've read Active Baby, Healthy Brain, the idea of a peanut-shaped Gymnic Physio Roll makes perfect sense. In the book, the author explains how using an exercise & therapy ball, with its inclination towards instability, will strengthen your baby's core muscles, body awareness, balance, and attention. You can use any exercise ball, but we like the idea of using the Gymnic Physio Roll.
Because of its unique shape, it will roll in only one direction, providing unparalleled security and stability. This stability makes using the Physio Roll a lot less daunting for new parents. As a bonus, 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 and has a tested load capacity of 660 pounds!
From the Manufacturer:
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.

All of my children enjoy this ball. It's a great addition to our school room.
This is a very sturdy item. My child likes to climb over it currently. We don't use it a whole ton but I believe it's for the infant part of the tiny tots curriculum so we'll be using it with our other son once he's born and old enough.
I got one kid that just can't sit still. A regular exercise ball rolls too much and posed a hazard for him, he fell off of it a few times. This is the perfect shape to get the wiggles out, focus in, and still be safe!
Daughter already loves being rolled around on this ball, and I can see great potential for it through the years.
