The superhero t-stool is designed produce vestibular (movement) input while a pediatric client needs to be in a seated position. In addition to providing vestibular input, the stool also requires activation of core muscles to balance and remain upright while seated on the stool. For a child who seeks vestibular input, the stool can help to increase the child’s ability to focus, pay attention, and remain seated while in the classroom. The superhero t-stool also includes changeable covers that can help customize the stool for the pediatric client based on the superhero that he or she may prefer. Each superhero design that was created has a removable seat cover, a detachable cape, and weighted lap accessory that corresponds to the superhero. The weight accessories can be used for proprioceptive (deep pressure) input for pediatric clients who need the sensory input.
