The Ball Blanket stimulates the sensory system and, thereby, contributes to create an improved bodily consciousness. The Ball Blanket is designed on the basis of the American occupational therapist and psychologist A. Jean Ayres's theories of sensory integration. It works due to the weight from the loose balls pressing at certain points of the body, which stimulates both the sensation of touch and the sense of muscle and joint. The many sensory impressions transmit inhibitory impulses to the central nervous system. This increases the sense of the body and its limits, and it provides confidence. Therefore the Ball Blanket is tranquillising.Enquire Now
