The proprioceptive system is the sensory system of the body, which is responsible for the internal and external signals of the body from muscles and joints it’s often knowing where we are in space. The tactile system is the sensory system responsible for receiving signals from our skin so touch.
The correct therapeutic effect aimed at these systems helps to relieve physical and emotional stress, relax the child/adult, provide the necessary sensations and help focus on other educational exercises.
Body Socks are designed specifically to provide spatial awareness through balance and resistance.
Users become enraptured as they explore the three-dimensional space they occupy, encouraging creative movement.
In addition, because the Lycra material is translucent they can see the shapes being created around them.
Each Body Sock has an easy entrance, and is constructed from four way stretch Lycra with a reinforced Velcro-closed entrance.
What an exciting experience to offer pupils!
Your whole class could practice making sequences of shapes and take it in turns to show the whole class wearing the body socks.
A fantastic way to teach spatial language with reinforced tactile information from the lycra.
“Tall”, “wide”, “tiny”, all start to have more meaning when a child feels the shape they make.
