Sensory Swing Uses

Sensory Swing Uses

The sensory swing is stretchable and provides full-body compression. These qualities give deep touch pressure and stimulate the vestibular system. For these reasons, it is commonly used in occupational therapy. The sensory swing is such a versatile product that we felt we would be remiss not to showcase its versatility.

First and foremost, as the name suggests, it is a swing. When hung up (indoors or outdoors), you can use it sitting down as you would in a traditional swing, or you can even use it laying down.

A few examples of different ways to swing in the sensory swing. Two of them sitting and one laying down

Burn energy by running around, bouncing up and down, and develop gross motor skills.

Examples of kids using the sensory swing to burn energy. One is bouncing outdoors, another running, and the last is bouncing indoors

Try adding it to your yoga routine.

Examples of using the sensory swing as a yoga swing. One model is doing a split on the swing and the other is standing in it

If taken down, it can also be used as a sensory wrap for deep pressure.

For some quiet time, use it as a cocoon. It gives deep pressure for sensory input. Kids and adults will both find this swing is a great option for simply lounging.

These are some examples of different ways of relaxing in the sensory swing. One of the models is reading a book while the other three are laying in it in different positions.

If you don't have enough space to attach the swing to the ceiling, install it in a doorway. It will limit your options slightly but will still be loads of fun.
