TACTILE STIMULATION PRODUCTS by house of play
How we feel and touch is often referred to as our tactile system. Sensations include vibrations, temperatures, pain and textures. Nerves under the skin’s surface send signals to the brain which then knows when something is touched and what has been touched making this a vital role in perception of the environment around us as well as protection. For instance when a child’s tactile system is working well, they can filter out irrelevant tactile input and respond to touch sensations appropriately. However when tactile issues do occur it leads to people struggling with everyday life.
Because different receptors detect and perceive different types of touch – it’s possible to be both under-responsive to certain types of touch and over-responsive to others, with this in mind we offer a full and extensive range of tactile equipment.
