Elastablast can bring fun and creativity to your movement therapy, fitness, or children's dance class. It's strong springy resistance maximizes proprioception input invaluable for grounding and motor co-ordination all while working together as a unit. Children love the rebound that requires them to assert their body weight and throw caution to the wind (within proper limits.) See our Elastablast Activities Page movement ideas or review our DVD's below.
Don't be fooled by cheaper imitations out there.
We have seen them poorly made with light-weight materials and dubious clamping methods covered with duct tape. We use a heavy duty inner latex core engineered with industry standard connectors and pneumatic clamps. The knock-offs can't compare to our 200 weight, double-sided thick outer fleece. Keep your children safe with our higher quality product made in the U.S.A.
Elastablast is an excellent tool for early childhood educators!
Mary J. Sullivan Coleman, OTR, MA and Laura J. Krueger, PT, MA use the Elastablast to facilitate Preschool Friendships with children of all abilities. Watch the video clip as they help children learn Preschool Social Skills.
Music Therapists use Elastablast for teaching rhythm and musicality.
Wendy Zieve, MA, MT-BC says: "The Elastablast is my absolutely number ONE most effective tool to promote social interaction among children with autism and other developmental delays. They will overcome their reluctance to be in a group because they are so motivated to touch the fleece, see the colors and feel the resistance of the elastic. It is perfect for pairing with song activities that teach passing to a neighbor, color identification, body part identification, and vocabulary such as up, down, under, on top, around."

I use BODYSOX in my violence prevention through movement work. Children are paired. One is in the SOX as a baby animal. The other is the parent who bonds through mirroring & teaches the baby how to travel, eat & what to do if there is danger. The parent then protects the baby from pretend dangers. BODYSOX provide kinesthetic feedback, creative stimulation & personal space boundaries. Children love them. After this activity children use BODYSOX when very upset for containment & self-regulation.
