The neuromat® is a colorful, fun and easy way to facilitate walking in a figure 8 pattern. It offers parents, teachers and therapists a multi-sensory approach to teaching virtually any person at any age how to walk (forward/backward), crawl, hop, skip or jump in a simple figure 8 pattern. This figure eight mat encourages practice between therapy sessions. For years, we have known that this type of motor movement helps the brain to create new neural pathways and in turn make the brain more efficient. As one moves through the figure 8 pattern, the brain has to quickly send and receive sensory data from one hemisphere to the other.
