Special Needs Corner: Excellent therapy tool. By definition of the cylindrical shape, movement is limited to two planes. Forward and backward is the primary plane, with up or down motion added as the subtle but secondary plane of movement. Therefore, the peanut shape is desirable when more controlled balance activities are utilized. Additionally, the contoured saddle shape in the center tends to cradle and support the user laterally, thus providing increased safety. This inexpensive peanut shape is ideal for any professional therapy program as well as being affordable for home exercise.
