When we were at our conference recently we purchased a small harness from Wingman Multi-Sport that looked like it had a lot of potential for use at work. Well its only been two weeks and so far our favorite use is for helping with bike riding. The handle on the back saves our backs (which is always a bonus) and it allows us to take our hands off the bike without compromising the safety of the child.
Another use we’ve found for it is to attach it to the weights in our Universal Exercise Unit so that the kiddos can climb up the cargo net against resistance and further strengthen their muscles while doing a functional activity.
There are a ton of other ideas we’ve had for using it such as assisting with crawling (to decrease weightbearing), providing assist with walking (so that we don’t actually have to have our hands on the child) and roller blading/skating. We just haven’t had kiddos that are appropriate for these activities yet so we will have to wait until that happens to trial our other ideas!
