The boundex is 1.3m long by 1.3m wide by 86cm high frame wrapped in several layers of lycra. This product was developed by Eileen Richter (MPH, OTR/L, FAOTA) to engage children and foster their innate drive to develop and use their bodies as nature intended. It is lightweight and mobile and offers a unique sensory-motor activity for babies and young children.
The overall impact of the boundex lies in the exceptional sensory-motor experience it offers a child. In simple terms, the following support-to-development is observed as the child moves on the apparatus:
Triggers the child’s drive to explore and challenge gravity using the whole body.
Elongating, activating, strengthening and grading core muscles of the body.
Develops strength and stability of the shoulders, arms, and hands through grasp, weight-bearing, and weight shifting.
Promotes 3 dimensional, refined movement of hands through expansion and gradation
Develops strength and stability of the pelvis, knees, and feet through weight-bearing, expansion, weight shift, and gradation, which leads to 3 dimensional, refined movement.
Facilitates stability with mobility throughout the body (no fixing/holding or compensatory patterns)
Vestibular, somatosensory integration is promoted with each action for improving balance and coordination.
Increases depth and variability of respiration/encourages vocalisation.
The child’s movement actively facilitates the integration of primitive reflexes allowing the emergence of 3-dimensional motor patterns.
The child’s movements develop controlled gradation of multiple muscle synergies, i.e. top/bottom, left/right, front/back, diagonal/rotational.
