Targeting the 5 sense below, Clarity Chair can help improve the problems associated with them:
|Tactile (Touch)||Body Awareness|
Fine Motor Skills
|Trouble in Crowds|
Bothered by Seams in Clothes
Pulls away from Hugs
Bothered by Food Textures
Has to Touch Everything
|Auditory (Listening)||Speech, Language Development, Memory, Comparing Sounds, Associating sounds with Letters, Numbers, Musical Notes, Attention.||Lack of Speech, Poor Listening Skills Remembering, Reading, Inattention|
|Vestibular||Development of Balance, Coordination, Eye Control, Attention, Feeling Secure, Emotional Security, Language||Inattention, Coordination, Following Directions, Reading, Eye-hand Coordination, Immature, Language Skills|
|Visual (Seeing)||Academic Achievement, Reading, Proficiency at Work, Athletic Performance||Loss of Place while Reading, Skipping Words or Lines on a Page Poor Athletic Performance Words Move Around on Page Reduced Comprehension Reduced Perceptual Fields|
|Proprioception||Knowing Where Muscles & Joints Are in Space and How They Are Moving, Required Input from Tactile & Vestibular Systems||Clumsy, Falls, Stumbles, Is Aggressive Walks on Toes, Constantly Chewing, Difficulty with Motor Planning, Messy at Mealtime|
In the past, many therapies have used single sensory inputs. It has now been shown that multi-sensory input yielded responses that were significantly greater than those evoked by the best single component stimulus.
An intervention involving sensory- motor integration with an emphasis on proprioceptive and vestibular senses significantly improved attention deficits, hyperactivity and impulsivity in the studied population.
We do not perceive sensory events as singular events. Sound, touch, sight, taste, smell, proprioception, and vestibular information, all interact to form the learning experience. Behavior and cognition develop through the integration of sensory information.
When sound and touch were activated simultaneously, the activation of the auditory cortex was strongest. Tactile and auditory stimulation simultaneously may positively impact neuroplastic changes in individuals with neurological deficits or impairments.
