|Peanut Massage BallThis is a tool I can highly recommend, especially for deep work. It offers more control over where you direct the pressure you are applying to you feet etc.|
| Balance Disc
I use this Core Balance Disc and can recommend it. This is a mid priced unit, but seems very durable. I continue to find new uses for it. When used in integration exercises for vision or auditory with the vestibular / proprioceptive senses it can add a lot of input. Perhaps too much for many children / adults and should be used conservatively.It is also quite comfortable to sit on and easily allows for getting the hips properly positioned to support the weight of the torso.
|Desk Buddy Chewable Ruler
I highly recommend this for both children and adults who can benefit from additional tactile stimuli. I have one on my desk and would not want to part with it. It sits betweem my keyboard and my body, and I often find myself fiddling with it. I do not chew mine.
