The Handee Band Exercise Kit is an all-in-one pack that gives loads of activities that provide deep pressure and proprioceptive input.
The Handee Band exercise kit was designed by an Occupational Therapist as a complete pack with all you need to get children, adolescents and adults moving, exercising, building muscle strength, balance, coordination, core and improve motor skills.
There are loads of suggested activities that give variety and target different areas and muscles.
We can see however, that the Handee Band concept is perfect for providing activities that give proprioceptive input (deep pressure to the receptors in the muscles and joints) which in turn can assist with self-regulation, sensory integration, stress and anxiety.
The Handee band exercise kit medium comes with:
- 4 x Fitness Band (yellow) – the Band is quite stretchy and has hand prints on it to clearly indicate where to place the hands for particular tasks.
- 1 x Large, and sturdy Flip Book with Exercises
- 1 x Spinner Board (which can be used to create a game or just to decide which exercise is done)
- 1 x Reusable Checklist (which can be used as a score card, for self-monitoring or as part of a daily schedule)
- 1 x Dry-erase marker
- Handee Band character stickers
Everything you need in one pack. It is ideal for individuals or for working with small groups. Add more bands and you can work with larger numbers, too.
The activities are well described and easy to do. In fact the whole system is easy and convenient. There is no set up required. Grab the pack and away you go.
