The Disc’O’Sit a round inflatable dynamic cushion from The Sensory University can be used in a variety of ways including for sitting, for floor activities and/or in conjunction with a ball to promote strength, balance and sensory integration. This product can also be used for standing activities and even in hydrotherapy for flotation. The uses are limited only by your imagination!
Added to any seat, the Disc’O’Sit encourages trunk activity, helping users achieve an upright sitting posture and strengthen postural support muscles in the trunk. It is a more dynamic alternative to the Movin’Sit.
The Disc’O’Sit encourages static anatomical seating while mimicking the dynamic seating motion of a therapy ball. The wedge shape encourages a seated posture with a forward pelvic position and good upper trunk posture and alignment. As the user shifts their weight, the wedge will change shape too – active participation is required to dynamically maintain upright sitting. The wedge surface is textured with small bumps, which tend to heighten sensory awareness and give firm feedback to the user.
Disc’O’Sit can be used as a wedge in a chair; to improve posture during floor sitting; or even upright in a chair as a back support.
