Everyone who has tried our bean bags and cushions absolutely loves them. There are many reasons why, but the main one is that they are comfortable in a way nothing else is. As soon as you get on a noomi, you relax straight away. It almost feels like a switch flicks in your head saying: "It's relaxation time". Now imagine what it does to a person with Autism, SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), ADD / ADHD or Asperger's Syndrome.
There's a few reasons why our beanbags feel so good:
1. The covers are made of a special fabric. Stretchy cotton, just like a thick t-shirt, feels great on the skin, and the stretchiness allows the bean bags to wrap around the body and envelope it. A good hug has a very soothing effect. It makes you feel safe.
2. Our bean bags are filled with special beads. Those high grade beads are much smaller than normal bean bag beads, they're quieter, and they are highly tactile. Those beads are encased in a separate liner, which makes it easy to wash the cover.
3. The unique shape of the bean bags (not traditional tear shape) means you can mould the bean bag into different shapes around the body. It provides uniform pressure and sensory input, which promote body awareness and helps focus and clam the mind. We often hear from parents that their child, who never ever sits still for a minute, spends hours in the noomi.
Our products are widely used by parents, carers, occupational therapist, school aides and many other professionals that help children and adults with autism to live a better life. You could be eligible for funding (HCWA, FaHCSIA, SWEP etc) from the government or aide agencies to help you purchase our products. Have a chat to your OT or school counsellor to check with them first, and contact us if you need a tax invoice to start the process. We are here to help!
We often hear exciting stories from our customers, telling us how they use the noomi in so many different ways and how effective they are to apply pressure, push, pull, jump on, create a reading corner or a quiet time go-to-place, sleeping and more.
