TheraGym Square Platform Swing
Provides many multi-sensory opportunities with extra stabilizing features: a hanging disk to keep the swing moving uniformly and a carpeted platform to keep clients in place. With one suspension point to allow the child to go in different planes of movement which increases the vestibular input and challenge. This hardy swing has a solid Baltic Birch wood base with a smooth edge for safety, and a soft removable carpet pad. Safety snap included.

Sensory Integration is a therapy that should be carried out by suitably trained and qualified people. These swings are intended for controlled movements - they are not toys.
“The platform swing is an essential swing in our S. I. clinic, as it allows for the child to work in different positions such as sitting, laying on their tummy or back. It is very versatile and allows for the task to be graded. We love to use the Tube Swing inside the platform to provide more postural support with gentle vestibular input. As the child improves their posture through the use of S. I., the challenges can increase and the child can lie or sit in different positions. The swing has ropes that the child can hold on to for support and we encourage the child to start to self-propel and move the swing themselves, as this is an excellent bilateral timing and coordination task, and provides proprioceptive input.”
