Description
 
Unlike foam barrels, the Air Barrel has bounce & provides rebound for a variety of therapeutic uses & exercises. Better yet, it can be deflated & easily stored away when not in use. The Air Barrel is a very simple, yet extremely versatile, multi-purpose therapy & training device. While it may look like a foam octagon or barrel, it is filled with air & is BOUNCY, helping with exercise that cannot be done with traditional foam shapes. Air Barrel can be used for therapy, exploratory play, tumbling & teaches body awareness and control. Each Air Barrel includes sturdy handles on the ends for easy mobility. Also, included on each end are d-rings for securing or suspending the Air Barrel for a variety of uses.

The size of the Air Barrel is great for smaller clientele working to climb through heights, but need a firm, soft surface to feel stable when exploring space. When straddling the barrel the hips are externally rotated and the pelvis is stabilized in an optimal position to encourage efficient lateral flexion and rotation of the trunk.
Sitting on the Air Barrel provides a small amount of proprioception and requires children to maintain their balance. This keeps their arousal up and therefore helps them to maintain engagement in the activity.
