Special Needs: Activity Pad - M131
(£65.94 incl VAT)
At Medoris Care, our aim is to help you care for others. That's why, we offer a wide range of relaxation products with familiar recognisable features. Not only do they occupy and soothe the mind, but they give a feeling of security.
Take a look at our Activity Pad. It's a lightweight sensory comforter, designed to stimulate visual and tactile senses, as well as relieve boredom and anxiety. Helpful for those suffering with conditions such as diminished cognitive functions, Alzheimer's, Dementia, ADHD, Special Needs, Memory Loss and Learning Difficulties.
The brightly-coloured activities keep the mind focussed, help reduce the possibility of distressed behaviour and occupy those who get restless. This makes it particularly useful for those who are prone to wandering off with a possible risk of falling. They also keep the hands busy, which aids fine motor skills and concentration.
What's more, they are a soothing distraction. They calm, comfort and de-stress the user. A huge plus, as engaging in a stimulating activity throughout the day can help lower anxiety levels and promote better sleep.
Sewn on to a denim fabric base is a range of tactile relaxation aids which are suitable for both left and right-handed people. The variations in texture and fabric create many tactile sensations for prolonged intrigue and the colourful button pockets make it highly visible when walking or just sitting.
The wooden beads, bow-tying string, touch close strip and popper and stud, all help to stimulate hand dexterity and hand-to-eye coordination. The zip is also a very familiar object. For some, it can replicate dressing skills to help improve independence for more privacy and greater dignity.
Furthermore, the clear pocket is for familiarity. Putting in a photo of family, friends or a younger self promotes visual recognition and gives a real sense of identity and belonging. Very important for that feeling of security. It can also hold other special memory items like drawings, Birthday or Christmas cards.
All-in-all, we hope that our relaxation aid Activity Pad offers many multisensory moments for the user and greater peace of mind for the carer.
