Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Aug 6, 2021

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Over the years we've written about different seating options for fidgeters such as the Vidget.  Fun and Function offers another solution with their Modern Ball Chair.  The Modern Ball Chair is the "ideal seat for kids who need to wiggle and move to help focus, but need extra support."

This seating solution offers the benefits of sitting on an exercise ball but with a backrest.  It also features locking wheels to ensure active bouncers won't roll away.  Some benefits of sitting on an exercise ball include increasing core strength, improving posture, and decreasing discomfort.

According to Fun and Function, it also helps "hyperactive children channel restless energy so your classroom or clinic can be a more productive learning environment for all..."
