The Sensory Lounger
$2,375.00 - $2,500.00
Sensory processing disorder disrupts the way an individual responds to sensations, severely impacting daily activities and impairing quality of life. For children with autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, emotional and behavioral disorders, anxiety disorder or other developmental conditions, sensory processing differences can initiate high levels of anxiety or arousal, leading to self-stimulatory behavior, self-injurious behavior, tantrums and meltdowns.
A growing body of literature indicates that deep touch pressure interventions act as a calming or focusing agent for individuals coping with sensory integration problems. While numerous tools are currently available to occupational therapists to provide this kind of proprioceptive input, few of these items actually achieve high enough levels of pressure to provide a sufficient benefit.
A New Solution
The Sensory Lounger is a new sensory based intervention that provides rapid deep touch pressure to the lateral, medial, ventral and dorsal sides of the body at the discretion of the user. By turning and shifting into the position that is most comfortable, the Sensory Lounger provides deep touch pressure in exactly the places where it’s needed.
At the heart of the patent pending Sensory Lounger is a sophisticated diaphragm pump and inflatable air compartment system. The pump is so quiet as to be barely audible, an important factor for sensitive ears. Powering on the system allows the air compartments to inflate to a pressure that is both effective and safe. Powering off provides a slow release of pressure. A quick release valve is also provided for rapid evacuation of the air compartments.
