Tumble Forms 2

Pediatric Tumble Forms

Tumble FormPurpose
Balls (16" and 22") Used for developing vestibular responses, balance, spatial orientation, body awareness, muscle strength. Used more specifically for therapy acts.
Balls (11") Primarily designed for rollin, pushing, throwing, catching, and may be used for adapted kickball.
Balls (22"): sitting Child stands with back of LEs against 1 side of ball; sit on ball while OT rolls it back until centered on top of ball; move ball in different directions 2 stimulate balance reactions. More advanced child: UEs outstretched 2 side while maintaining balance
Balls: Elicit Protection extension reflex Lay prone on appropriate sized ball w/arms in front of ball giving child support @ hips, roll ball fwd/elicit reflex.
Balls: Elicit trunk Equilibrium Response Lay prone on appropriately sized ball; give support @ hips, gently rock ball fwd/bkwd/ sdwys while monitoring responsiveness.
Balls: Facilitate Relaxation Especilly appropriate for spastic child. Muscle tone can be decreased by quietly rocking while in prone position on ball. Reaction should be carefully monitored so over-inhibition doesn't occur
Balls: Promote WB on Knees Knee walking, hugging appropriately sized ball
Rolls AKA Bolsters Fundamentally adaptable shapes where "rolling" or "rocking" movement is desired on a 1-to-1 therapist/patient relationship. Most suitable for coordination raining/development of normal tone in trunk in relation to UEs/LEs.
Rolls AKA Bolsters: Development of head, UE & hip extension, & knee flexion- (Ex 1) Place in prone on appropriate size roll/interact w/child. Larger child gets 2 rolls. This added support allows for fwd/bkwd walking of UEs.
Rolls AKA Bolsters: Development of head, UE & hip extension, & knee flexion- (Ex. 2) Have child straddle roll/position self behind. Place child prone w/head & trunk on roll. Then ask child 2 slowly extend segmentally beginning w/head & neck to 2 deg. they can handle. Caution w/hyperext. of head/trunk, could= abdnorm. mvment patterns.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Prevention of abnormal movement patterns- Hug from behind, hold child's arms above wrists. Rolls diameter should permit feet to rest flat on floor.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Development of forearm/hand control "Prop prone" on appropriate sized roll. Ecourage reaching, grasping, releasing.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Development of UE WB Position o all 4's w/roll giving moderate support to abdomen. Now shift WB from knees to arms in an exercise pattern.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Balance activities Sit straddling roll. Diameter must permit ft. 2 rest flat on floor. Thighs/lowr legs are @ (R) angles 2 eachother. Lean trunk slightly fwd @ hips. Place hands flat betwn knees on surface. Push up w/1 foot, then other 2 simulate rocking motion.
Rolls AKA Bolster: balance activities Lie prone on roll (lengthwise).LEs extend straight out from hips w/knees slightly bent so child can "hug" roll w/LEs & UE's. Then gently rock side-side w/child maintaining original position and compensating for shifting center of gravity.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Development of LEs Straddle roll sitting and gently rock (L)->(R) to reduce muscle tone in LE's & ft. Staying balanced on roll, position LEs out front to stretch hamstrings/abductors. To stretch heel cords, place hips, knees, ankles at 90 deg. or greater.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Development of LEs From sittng position on proper sized roll, bring child to standin position tofacilitate stretching of hamstings while controlling knee extension/hyperextensio.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Develop Trunk Rotation Sit child beside proper sized roll & rotate trunk (L) & (R). Build on rotation by gradually leaning sideways to point of touhing floor on either side.
Rolls AKA Bolster: develop Perceptual Skills Longer rolls=excelent seats for both teacher/child during 1-to-1 instructional or sensory stim. exers. Working w/flash cards or other aids while facing eachother permits a more "intimate" atmosphere while encouraging balance control.
Rolls AKA Bolster: For the blind Orientation in space is a basic skill experience. Develop tactile awarenss w/hand positions & then smoothly roll fwd making trunk horizontal.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Development of Hip Flexion/ Extension Position in kneeling posture allowing them to weight bear on roll w/ UE's either flexed or etended. Rocking fwd & back allows increase in control over hip flexion/extension.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Raised rolls- Smaller Elevated sides of smal lend themselves to flexion/extension exercises.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Raised rolls-Larger Tall enough for stable bolster sitting.
Rolls AKA Bolster: Raised rolls-General Provides a stable base for knee & ankle flexion, cervical elongation & bolster sitting.
