WhirlyGoRound

a New Tool for Therapy

• Powerful Vestibular Stimulation
• Builds Core Strength
• Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivation
How It Works

It's Physics: Using their core muscles, kids shift their center of mass away from and toward the center of rotation; unleashing the power of gravitational potential energy.

Why It's Effective

Watching others spin is strong extrinsic motivation for desired behaviors & goals. The sensation of spinning as long and fast as they like is intrinsic motivation and provides vestibular stimulation while building core strength.

Getting A Feel For It

Kids can feel how their gross motor movements, and the timing of those movements, results in acceleration or deceleration. Effort is rewarded by the thrill of spinning and a real sense of achievement.

Why Some Good Kids Have Bad Days

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

Remember PhysActive fun?

Nowadays, kids are "protected" from merry-go-rounds, monkey bars and jungle gyms that provided powerful sensory input.

Generation Screentime

Sedentary play means kids aren't getting the same physically active fun as previous generations, resulting in less fitness and sensory input.

Containerizing

For safety's sake, some kids are shuttled from one container to the next and might not develop enough core strength to get the sensory input they need.

Generation Screentime

Sedentary play means kids aren't getting the same physically active fun as previous generations, resulting in less fitness and sensory input.

SENSORY DYSREGULATION
Impacts Behavior and Emotions

Self-regulation is disrupted by Sensory Dysregulation:

Emotions: Regulating their focus and attention becomes difficult.

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

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

Cognitive: Regulating the mental processes for problem solving and persistence to tasks is difficult.

WHIRLYGOROUND IMPROVES
Core Strength and Sensory Regulation

The rich proprioceptive and vestibular input from spinning on WhirlyGoRound can help build core strength and regulate their sensory systems, leading to a cascade of positive benefits. 

VESTIBULAR STIMULATION:

Physical Affect:Better balance, coordination, eye tracking, visual processing, reading ability, attention, concentration, ability to focus, cognitive processing, enhances neuroplasticity, releases endorphins.

Mood Affect: Better impulse control, ability to self-regulate emotions, behaviors, focus and pay attention.

PROPRIOCEPTION:

WhirlyGoRound is 100% Kid-Powered

Physical Affect:Strengthens core including abdomen, back, hip flexors and shoulder girdle; ability to sit still for long periods, achieve level of movement and play to get sufficient sensory input. balance, body awareness and coordination, releases endorphins.

Mood Affect: Increased calm, less fidgety, more settled and content.
