The neuromat ® is a colorful, fun and easy way to facilitate walking in a figure 8 pattern. It offers parents, teachers, and therapists a multi-sensory approach to teaching virtually any person at any age how to walk (forward/backward), crawl, hop, skip or jump in a simple figure 8 pattern.The motor movement of walking in a figure 8 pattern is based on years of research. This strategic method encourages the brain to integrate many functional skills at the same time, thus increasing its ability to multi-task. When the brain is able to process sensory information and turn those messages into appropriate motor actions, learning takes place. There are many different cognitive ability levels, but the ability to use the brain to the best of its’ ability, is a skill that must be developed, practiced and maintained.
