The amazing Basket Swring is constructed of 3 strong wooden-plastic rings plus the platform that kids can sit on, stand on, or hang from, and it swings, spins and revolves all at the same time!
There is more to the Basket Swring than meets the eye: it also helps children develop balance, poise, strength and equilibrium.
Basket Swring Features:
- Precise, durable heat treated bearing spins on a lifetime nylon
- Collapses for easy storage
- High quality non-toxic paint protects it from the weather and the constant use
- Platform contains a non-slip surface
Benefits of SWRING-ing noted in therapy:
- Fun to ride - Accommodates 18 month+ users, fostering group cooperation, problem solving, turn-taking, fostering flexibility in typical playmate roles. Creative play ideas emerge during use of the SWRING - astronauts flying in space ships, Group activities on the SWRING also encourage coordination and body awareness related to moving one’s body near/next to a peer’s body.
- Improves balance and core strength - stand to squat balance [ski pose or quad strengthening], promotes head inversion/ vestibular activation when reaching down to the floor and returning up to standing.
- Supports integration of the body moving in space for kids with gravitational insecurity
- Supports bilateral coordination of arms/legs for climbing and transitioning body in/out of the SWRING
- Supports neck/arm/trunk righting reactions which all translate to improving body position in space sensation, and increasing graded, controlled muscle responses, and appropriate timing with muscle responses
- Vestibular/Spinning input increases alertness levels with great social emotional outcomes (improved eye contact, increased vocalizations, increased spontaneous speech, increased affect/expressions and engagement)
- Improves postural control and alignment - orthopedically-challenged kiddos, and kids with limited movement experiences quickly learn how to orient their bodies and align the spine vertically for more optimal posturing during face to face interactions and during UE/upper extremity functional tasks.
- Basket frame provides a sense of security for short sitting and scooting around while seated on the bottom platform.

- What we do is teach parents to do these things at home. We had a parent see the Swring and she ordered one for her child
- My son, Grant, was diagnosed with autism 6 years ago. For the past couple years he has had access to a SWRING at his speech/OT clinic. When Grant uses the SWRING we noticed an increase in focus and attention. He is also very well regulated when using the SWRING.
- I will sit on one side and have the child sit on the other side, so they can learn how to feel their bodies. Just getting the kids to invert their heads gets their balance system to activate.
- It is very effective with high functioning autism or aspergers syndrome children. I get four kids on it [the Swring] at a time. It
- Look at how tire swings are constructed they have defined frame. They can
