The Disc'O'Sit can be used in a variety of ways; for sitting, for floor activities and/or in conjunction with a ball to promote strength, balance and sensory integration, for standing activities and even in hydrotherapy.
Added to any seat, the Disc'O'Sit encourages trunk activity, helping users achieve an upright sitting posture and strengthen postural support muscles in the trunk. It is a more dynamic alternative to the Movin'Sit.
The Disc'O'Sit encourages correct static anatomical seating while mimicking the dynamic seating motion of a therapy ball. The wedge shape encourages a seated posture with a forward pelvic position and good upper trunk posture and alignment.
As the user shifts their weight, the wedge will change shape too - active participation is required to dynamically maintain upright sitting. The wedge surface is textured with small bumps, which tend to heighten sensory awareness and give firm feedback to the user.
Disc'O'Sit can be used as a wedge in a chair; to improve posture during floor sitting; or even upright in a chair as a back support.
Standard (or Senior) Disc'O'Sit measures 37.5 cm (15 inches) in diameter.
The child size version of the Disc'O'Sit, the Disc'O'Sit Junior, fits perfectly in most primary school chairs and is a popular addition to the regular classroom setting. It suits preschool and lower primary school children up to about eight years of age.
Disc'O'Sit Junior helps growing children to develop correct and healthy posture and can help the "squirmy" child improve concentration. It is great for kids who tend to slump in their chairs because of poor awareness or low muscle tone in their trunks. In particular, kids with ADHD and/or Sensory Integration Dysfunction often benefit from the Disc'O'Sit Junior.
Disc'O'Sit in both sizes is strong, durable and washable.
Inflation can be easily done by mouth or pump and adjusted to meet individual needs. The disc just as easily deflates for compact storage.
Disc'O'Sit Junior (for kids) measures 32.5cm (13 inches) in diameter.
