Special Needs Products

  1. Vestibular Therapy

    Vestibular disorders arise from parts of the inner ear and brain and affect the sensory information pertaining to balance and eye movements. Symptoms include dizziness, vertigo, visual disturbance, and imbalance. These are often seen in children with Down Syndrome, autism, and anxiety disorders like panic attacks. Vestibular therapy can be provided through specially created items that help overcome these problems. These products provide vestibular rehabilitation through balance training and other exercises that shift the brain's focus from dizzying spells to actions like body positioning and coordination. Therapy is offered through adaptive swings, indoor climbing ladders, one-seated gliders, and tortoise shell therapy systems.

  2. Furniture

    At HPFY, we offer a variety of special needs products that solve the seating issues of special needs people. Some of them are described below:

    • There is specially created furniture for all special needs children to encourage them to learn to eat independently and improve communication in a relaxed environment. There are adaptive chairs that link the postural control of a child with functional movements of the upper extremities and help with sit-to-stand activities. Also available are adult seats, height right chairs, benches, special needs feeding chairs with a tray, book bins, lift chairs, and more.

  3. Gross Motor Development

    Gross motor skills involve control of the large muscles in the body to help perform normal daily functions like walking, running, swimming, crawling, etc. We carry scores of versatile products created to help develop the gross motor skills of children with developmental disabilities, particularly Down Syndrome, congenital abnormalities, cerebral palsy, and autism. Various games and sensory integration activity items aid in eye-hand coordination, help maintain balance, improve grip, and increase focus and attention span with an overall emphasis on interaction and attention. Tunnels, tents, and play panels encourage exploring, crawling, climbing, and weight-bearing coordination. Our ball pools and ball pits encourage the development of gross motor skills through physical play.

  4. Special Needs and Learning

    Special needs condition brings certain dysfunctional traits of attention deficit, speech disorders, and visual impairment.

    • Some adaptive equipment for special needs helps reduce symptoms associated with speech therapy and vision therapy through pattern recognition, sequencing, lacing, and tracing. There are also puzzles, peg boards, activity kits, and all types of exciting and captivating fine motor tasks.
    • To enable learning from infancy, catch them young, and inculcate awareness, there are a series of early intervention products such as vibrotactile stimulators and therapeutic toys. Kids diagnosed with learning disabilities like dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, non-verbal learning disabilities, and auditory processing disorder (APD) need special learning tools. These encourage creative expression and develop fine motor, tactile, cognitive, and hand-eye coordination.
    • Our adaptive computer equipment, such as specially designed mice, touch pads, and keyboards, helps lessen muscle tension, increase user efficiency, and apply less stress to weak fingers.
    • The learning toys section provides stimulating sensory toys for children with special needs issues, as well as various interesting games that help the little ones with verbal expression and visual motor planning.
  5. Weighted Blankets

    Restlessness, anxiety, mood swings, and nervous fidgeting are common in autistic kids and children with ADHD. Weighted blankets act as a comfort factor in calming down a nervous or fidgety child. Plenty of other relaxation products help with these, including weighted sashes, weighted writing gloves, pressure vests, weighted animals, and lap pads. They provide a secure, grounded feeling and calming effect on the child. These weighted items also force more attention and focus out of the children during studies, making them sit in one place for longer periods.

  6. Sensory Toys

    Sensory therapy toys and sensory-motor balls play a useful role in developing the vestibular response of children with autism and Down Syndrome. These special needs therapy equipment help develop motor skills through Tumble Forms 2 developmental training balls, which teach children to balance, widen their attention span, improve their protective extension reflex and trunk equilibrium response, facilitate relaxation, and promote weight bearing on knees. These balls also help strengthen core muscles and improve body awareness.

  7. Visual, Tactile, and Auditory Stimulation

    Special needs conditions can affect vision, hearing, and touch. We have stimulatory special needs equipment designed to help improve them by targeting skills pertaining to these three senses. There are toys for tactile stimulation using sensory massage, textures, and spatial awareness assistive technology. Visual stimulation is provided using mirror and light therapy. Children with hearing impairment are given auditory stimulation through instruments and music players, enabling auditory and color recognition using music and bright, twinkling, multi-colored lights.

  8. Assistive Technology

    Our assistive technology products offer visual and auditory cues, including switches, mounting products, and environmental control units. The child is subjected to great visuals, spinning glitter, and vibration, providing auditory and tactile feedback. Califone's sound alert jack box visibly signals to students and teachers when the volume is louder than the recommended 85 dB level. The reminding device from Motivaider gently reminds the child about a chore or homework. The Pouring Cups Game is designed to teach the laws of conservation. These equipment for special needs are created to promote physical and mental exercises.
