Which fitballs do Physiotherapists recommend?

The inflatable Activity Physio Roll by Fitball Australia has a unique double-ball design shaped similar to a peanut. It's unique shape makes it easier to use than a traditional gym ball as it's movement is limited mostly to forward and back - with minimal side to side movement. This gives you greater stability during exercise and when lying on or hugging the physio roll. Therapists have found the rolling back and forward action is useful as a sensory therapy tool to stretch, improve balance and help calm the nervous system.

The importance of fitballs for Physiotherapists

Relaxing toys are designed to help young children with relaxation issues, particularly those with sensory processing disorder (SPD). Sensory Processing Disorder is a neurological disorder that affects how the brain processes information. It results in unusual responses to Relaxing stimuli. SPD affects 5 to 20 percent of children, according to the SPD Foundation. It's most common in boys, with an estimated ratio of three to one. SPD is not limited to children. Adults with the disorder often seek out Relaxing tools for relief.
