Tactile Panel No. 5 - Loopies

As well as the wide range of textures, this panel includes a very strong visual tracking feature, the 'Loopies' activity. You post plastic balls into the holes at the top and watch them tumble down, disappearing and reappearing until they emerge into the tray at the bottom.

The original and best Tactile Panels by Mike Ayres Design are often imitated, but never the same.

They provide wonderful focal points for any sensory, breakout or classroom and can even be used in Hallways as points of interest. The carefully selected textures which have been meticulously chosen and tested to give your clients a wide range of sensory feedback, while ensuring that it is robust and can take regular and heavy use. 

The patented "trail" design is to encourage exploration, leading the client from one texture to another in a fluid and organic way. Each texture offers its own properties which are unusual to find in normal life and even rarer for those with limited movement.

It is well known that sensory tactile exploration can help with cognitive development, language development, fine motor skills, and emotional regulation. It can also help with sensory integration, provide a sense of calm and relaxation, and can be used as a tool for self-expression and communication.
