PT Corner: Five Fun Activities with Balance Beams!
[Source: Dinosaur Physical Therapy]
This post will explore fun activities for children using Balance Beams! One of my favorite pieces of equipment is the Curve-A-Beam Set! Allowing for lots of wonderful opportunities to address motor planning, body awareness, strength, coordination and of course balance! This set is made of a dense foam which allows nice amount of both tactile and proprioceptive feedback for children, promoting development of intrinsic arch muscles as the child navigates along. Easy for children, teachers, therapists and caregivers to construct different configurations for new challenges! Also one of the top picks in our Pediatric PT Toolbox!
