Nicknamed the "listening chair," HowdaHUG provides deep sensory input to encourage calm and focus. It gently cradles individuals who rock and provides support to prevent them from falling back. Cocoon-like support holds kids or adults in an upright position to promote balance, core strength and posture. Can be used on the floor or placed on a chair.
Most people love HUGs! The smooth rocking and cradle-like comfort create a calm and peaceful seating experience. Benefits range from better focus, less fidgeting, increased eye contact, more concentration and all around peaceful sitting.
The linear rocking movement provides individuals with low muscle tone the benefit of core strengthening.
Occupational Therapists and Educators endorse the HowdaHUG over all other seating for helping calm fidgety kids and individuals with Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder(SPD), Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and other spectrum disorders. Using the HowdaHug in school during circle time or at the desk is proven to make a noticeable difference in student focus and attention.
