The weather is beautiful and there are many reasons to be outside! Check out the Easterseals Iowa Assistive Technology Center Lending Library inventory for some fun outdoor recreational activities to connect with other and make new friends!
The Octaband is an interactive device designed to help participants to make connections through movement. The stretchy nylon-spandex material helps to promote group interaction, increase self-awareness, and encourage fun! This is a great option for populations such as people with disabilities and older adults. While participating each person is attached to an arm of the Octaband encouraging independence, while still promoting group participation. Each participant wraps an “arm” around their wrist or leg and stretches the nylon-bands out.
This fun and interactive group product is available through the Easter Seals Lending Library. It can be checked out for 30 days at a time. Following is a link to the Octaband: https://eastersealsia.at4all.com/Items/ItemDetails.aspx?ItemID=170076.
