Product Description

Playpak

Playpak lets you play a bigger part in your child’s therapy, and that matters a lot. Research shows that early intervention programmes for babies and children that allow therapists and parents to work together, like Playpak does, make a bigger impact on a child’s development.

 

This lightweight bag contains an entire activity centre. Inside you will find rolls, wedges and supports (designed by clinical experts) that stick together in dozens of different ways to let you and your child practice the early positions which form the building blocks for later abilities. 

 

Playpak is also more than just practical, it looks great too. It definitely doesn’t look like therapy equipment, and won’t attract any sideways glances!

  • Suitable for infants and young babies from birth to 48 months considered to be levels I-V (GMFCS).
  • Playpak helps develop physical, cognitive, sensory and communication skills.
  • Removable fabric can be washed at 40°C (86°F) and tumble dried at a low temperature.

Features & Benefits

Playpak Features & Benefits

Using additional components with Playpak can allow you to achieve an even wider variety of developmental postures and positions.

Back Lying (Supine)

Why is back lying important? 

This is the most fundamental of developmental positions. When your child lies on their back, their full body weight is symmetrically supported by the surface. This makes it a very secure position from which to work on the physical, cognitive, sensory, and communication skills that provide the building blocks to more complex skills.

Tummy Lying (Prone)

Why is tummy lying important?

Tummy lying is sometimes a difficult position for little ones as they have to struggle against gravity to lift their heads. It is however also important for developing and strengthening muscles. Research has shown that about one half of typically developing infants show some delayed development by six months of age if they are never placed on their tummies when awake. This makes it especially important to have some daily tummy time.

Floor Sitting

Why floor sitting important?

Sitting is considered a vital part of the developmental sequence because of the other skills which are based upon its foundation. Sitting allows hands and arms to be free while the trunk and pelvis are stabilised. In turn, this allows handling of objects, exploration, increased learning opportunities and interaction with the environment.

Practicool

Your Playpak is light, handy and can go anywhere. Grab it when you head to gran’s house and your little one can happily play, learn and get stronger while the grown-ups catch-up. Or to a birthday party so junior gets great therapy and misses none of the action. Or hang it on the stroller and head to the park for impromptu therapy with a picnic. You’ll want to take it everywhere – and you can.

 

You’ll find it easy to store at home too. Just hang it on a coat hook, in a corner or in the wardrobe – it’s durable enough to take a little bit of squishing, squashing and bashing.

Advanced Support

Using additional components with Playpak can allow you to achieve an even wider variety of developmental postures and positions.

 

Using an additional horseshoe component for example can help to facilitate a larger or stronger child, whilst additional short and long rolls can further support side lying and four point kneeling.

Customer Comment

I like this product. The one criticism I would make is that I brought 2 of the large horseshoe parts because it stated by adding another to the pack you could adapt it to get longer use from the product. But the Velcro parts of the 2 horseshoes doesn't line up so when I stack one above the other...
