Tumble Forms 2: Vestibular Therapy and Sensory Integration for Children
Thursday, 17 May 2018
Physical therapy can be daunting at any age, but for children and young adults it can be a terrifying experience. Tumble Forms 2 have created a range of products that have been designed to boost vestibular therapy and sensory integration in ways that are both fun and engaging.
The Tumble Forms 2 range includes a wide range of equipment designed to stimulate movement, improve balance, and encourage interaction in young individuals. Whether used as part of therapeutic treatment in a professional environment or installed in the home for therapy in a familiar environment, the range of seats, swings, balance boards, and chairs can encourage a significant improvement in sensory response. To make it easier for you to find exactly what you're looking for, here at HealthandCare.co.uk we've put together this guide to the different kinds of Tumble Forms 2 equipment available.
Tumble Forms 2 Deluxe Vestibulator II System
One of the most popular Tumble Forms 2 products is the Deluxe Vestibulator II System. It provides suspension without requiring any fixed installation, allowing it to be easily adjusted to accommodate the individual needs of each child. The free-standing unit provides vestibular, neurodevelopmental, and sensory integrational therapy, assisting users with vertical stimulation and direction flexion, linear acceleration, rotational experiences, and complete range-of-motion exercises.
In order to make the Deluxe Vestibulator II system as flexible and beneficial for each child as possible, a range of accessories and additions are available. The following add-ons can be used to transform the Deluxe Vestibulator II for more tailored therapy:

Tumble Forms 2 Balance Equipment
An ability to balance is an integral part of development for children, and with the Tumble Forms 2 range of balance equipment this can be encouraged in a fun and interactive environment. The six-foot reversible Balance Beam, for example, is particularly versatile with encouraging children to exercise while improving stability and developing coordination; it's ideal for use in hospitals, at clinics, or even in school.
For children unable to walk or move around freely, the Barrel Crawl/Roll Trainer is a stellar option. It provides rhythmic exercise while increasing muscle tone and balance, encouraging children to learn to crawl or walk. The Jettmobile Scooter provides a similar support, while developing upper extremity strength, and focusing coordination therapy on the neck, shoulders, and arms.
Tumble Forms 2 Positioning Aids
Many children may be unable or too young to support their own body, and this is where the Tumble Forms 2 Positioning Aids come in. From antimicrobial Raised Rolls for combined stability and positioning to the Tadpole Paediatric Positioner for babies and very young children, there is a versatile range of positioning aids to suit virtually any situation.
The Tumble Forms 2 Three-in-One TriStander, available in both TriStander 45 and TriStander 58 models, provides a versatile approach to positioning that grows with the child for ongoing support. It encourages standing while facilitating weight bearing on the feet, reducing abnormal muscle tone and assisting with hip and knee alignment. It also provides psychological benefits by stimulating cognitive activity, encouraging communication, and improving face-to-face socialising.
Tumble Forms 2 Chairs and Seating
In addition to receiving vestibular therapy, many children and young people also require more support on a daily basis. With this in mind, the Tumble Forms 2 Chairs and Seating range has been created. The range combines comfortable and convenient floor seats such as the Mobile Floor Sitter and the Deluxe Square Module Seating System with more complex units such as the Tumble Forms 2 Carrie Potty Seat and Tumble Forms 2 Feeder Seat for support during toileting and feeding respectively.
Many of the Tumble Forms 2 seating options are also available with add-on accessories for optional added benefits. Covers can be added for improved hygiene, while trays can be installed for improved independence with feeding and for encouraging play and creativity without compromise to the individual's ability to remain well-supported while seated.
Tumble Forms 2 Bathroom Equipment
Where additional support is required around the home, the Tumble Forms 2 Bathroom Equipment provides the Tumble Forms Starfish Bath Chair. This padded chair is available in four sizes, suitable for babies through to adolescents, and can be adjusted to allow for the most comfortable and practical positioning in the bath. It also folds flat for convenience, allowing it to be stored away when not in use. Improving bath time for both child and adult, it is a versatile and functional approach to easing the bathing process where restrictions may otherwise be present.
