An exciting, stimulating pad that reduces anxiety and boredom

• Effective in reducing anxiety and boredom
• Serves as a tool in training for eye-hand coordination
• Helps improve finger strength and dexterity
• Can be placed on the lap to reduce anxiety

The brain seeks information primarily by directing individuals to look, listen, smell, touch and taste. It is important to note that the experience of any event is almost always multi-modal involving the sensory and motion systems (Freeman, 1991, Thelen & Smith, 1997).

It has been found that therapeutic touch (Krieger, 1997) is effective in decreasing anxiety. This multi-modal product addresses sight and touch and is effective in reducing anxiety, boredom and also serves as a tool in training for eye-hand coordination and also improves finger strength and dexterity.

Easy to Use: This sensory pad should be placed on a surface convenient to the person. The individual should be encouraged to move the four fish around the aquarium pad. This pad may be warmed in warm water or cooled in the refrigerator to enhance recognition of heat or cold. Since the fish present a possible choking hazard this product shouldn’t be used for persons cognitively under (3) years old. In addition, the sensory pad must always be used under the direct supervision of a qualified care giver.

Easy Care: This sensory activity pad is manufactured by means of heat-sealing. It can be cleaned with a mild, non-chlorinated detergent and can be disinfected with a mild, non-chloride-containing disinfectant. Although the gel is not toxic, medical assistance must be invoked if the gel is taken through the mouth. If the product is cracked or damaged, it must be discarded.
