PhysActive Fun!
and Therapeutic

WhirlyGoRound can enhance a child's ability to self-regulate emotions, attention and behaviors. Vestibular and proprioceptive stimulation can help the brain better organize and process sensory information.
How It Works

100% Kid-Powered Fun

It's Physics: Using core muscles to shift their center of mass away from and toward the center of rotation creates torque. Sustained effort is rewarded by a thrilling sense of achievement.

IF ONLY ONE CHILD HAS A BAD DAY... IT'S A BAD DAY FOR EVERYONE.

Let's Have Good Days

Schools • Child Care • Churches • Pediatric & Occupational Therapy

When children are better able to self-regulate their emotions, attention, and behaviors, it can create a more positive and productive environment for all.

• Fewer meltdowns and emotional outbursts translate to a calmer overall atmosphere.

• Improved self-regulation means less time managing distractions and more time on planned activities and instruction.

Why It's Effective

Vestibular and Proprioceptive Stimulation

The vestibular system helps with balance and spatial awareness, while the proprioceptive system provides information about body position and movement.

Read on for why this sensory input is crucial for healthy overall development.

WHY SOME GOOD KIDS
Have Bad Days

Sensory Dysregulation and Lack of Sensory Input

Today, kids are "protected" from merry-go-rounds, monkey bars and jungle gyms, spending more time in sedentary play and getting less sensory input. Some crawl for only a short time or, for safety, are shuttled between containers so may not develop sufficient core strength for sensory stimulation.

sensory dysregulation
Impairs Self-Regulation

Emotions: Regulating their emotions becomes difficult.

Behavior: Their capacity to regulate their actions and behaviors is hindered. 

Attention and Focus: Regulating their focus and attention is difficult.

Cognitive: The mental processes for problem solving and persistence to tasks is hindered.

Physically active play is important for children to get the sensory input they need to self-regulate their emotions and behaviors.
