The sensory backpack provides space for tactile, auditory, visual, and proprioceptive sensory input - all in one place.
The Adapt backpack addresses different sensory needs by providing the following:
- Tactile input
- Auditory input
- Proprioceptive input (deep pressure and chewing)
- Visual input
ONLY AVAILABLE IN AUSTRALIA.
Many of our children find the unexpected, ever-changing environment outside of their homes, to include an overwhelming amount of sensory input that they have to deal with, often to the point where they are not able to cope on outings and in everyday activities.
- Sensory toy to chew on
- Slip pocket to store the chewy toy when not in use
- Firm fabric elastic to pull on
- Sequin patch
- Hip belt to provide calming, deep pressure (hugging feeling)
- Memory foam pads to squeeze
We see a huge difference if a child is equipped with suitable coping mechanisms to help him/her stay regulated throughout the day.
Children will be able to explore and expand on their strengths and interests in a functional and organized manner.
Collaborated with occupational therapists and neurodivergent adults in designing this product!
By having the above-mentioned sensory needs addressed, the child is supported in being regulated, enabling him/her to face the environment and even learn from it, in an organized manner. It, therefore, reduces the risk of the child becoming overwhelmed and losing emotional control.
Designed and patented in Australia by AIMS.
