This unique ”Crash Pad” was developed primarily for young adults to serve as a fall pad whether for exercises or learning appropriate responses to falling. In many situations, children with developmental delay or sensory integration disorder need to learn the appropriate falling procedures. Associated with a primitive reflex called the moro reflex.
Presently available are air, bean or hard foam pads. When falling on an air bag there is a tendency to bounce off. Bean bags can be hard and expensive to ship. Similar disadvantages are associated with solid or composite foam fall mats.
The crash pad composition which consists of cut foam significantly absorbs shock and doesn’t tend to have the child “bounce off”. It is very comfortable for resting periods, climbing on and other athletic activities.
Normally, it would be difficult to ship due to the bulkiness but shipping costs are minimized by shipping it in a compressed form.
Although the covers are wiped clean nylon and can be cleaned easily, an optional cover that fits over the inner nylon cover is available that can be laundered.
