Basic principles and functions
- Not only adults will be surprised by the balance characteristics, opportunity to relax, release of stress, optimal use of deep muscle stabilization system, breathing, stimulation of muscle body tone and sensors of the vestibular system. Thus it helps to develop – coordination, sense for balance, stability, and opens up the ability of perception of one's body in space.
- The complexity of VAWA balance board can be tried in many components of your workout. It improves agility, gross motor skills, body stability and responsiveness to many stimuli. It just depends on the intensity of swinging. With living memory the slow movement is considered to be soothing, relaxing, allowing babies and toddlers to accelerate and improve sleep. This feature will be appreciated especially by parents swinging with their children in a sling, carrier or just in their arms.
- Sensory movement (using multiple senses) affects both motor function but also the central nervous system, which can improve the cognitive skills (intelligence, memory, thinking), language, concentration, and learning.
