Happy Times Hammocks, like most hammocks for sale on , are made of nylon parachute material. The single hammock folds into its travel pouch so you can toss it in your backpack, handbag, or luggage. Parachute hammocks have commonly been used in therapeutic settings for occupational and physical therapy, and for children with autism (ASD) and Asperger syndrome (PDD). The cocoon-like design provides total body pressure that not only feels good, but builds muscular strength, coordination and balance. The suspension creates a heightened relationship with gravity, which stimulates the vestibular system responsible for balance and coordination. After moving and resting in the parachute hammock a child will feel more alert, relaxed and calm. The whole body deep pressure enhances dopamine receptors in the brain that results in better focus and impulse control. This is commonly used by occupational therapists when calming children with autism or Asperger syndrome. Vestibular, Sensory Motor and Sensation Slow movement activities in a hammock are calming and organized for the nervous system resulting in a calm alert state. This contributes to reducing hyperactivity and distraction.
