Fidget Bands

Thursday, August 09, 2018

Not too long ago, fidget spinners were the hottest gadget around, and every fidgety kid (and some adults) wanted them. The device, consisting of a ball bearing in the center of a multi-lobed flat assembly made from metal or plastic, is designed to spin along its axis with little effort.

Fidget spinners were initially created to help people who have trouble focusing or those who fidgetto relieve nervous energy, anxiety or stress. Fidget spinners can help calm down people who have anxiety and other neurological disorders such as ADHDand autism.

While they’re still around (just not as popular), the new kid on the block is the fidget band. “What the heck is a fidget band?” you might be asking yourself. A fidget band has the same purpose as a fidget spinner. The difference is that the bands are quieter and far less distracting than the spinners.

If you’re a teacher with restless kids in class or if you’re a professional who happens to be a foot-tapper during meetings, fidget bands might just offer you a solution. Simply wrap our super-stretchy Workout Bands™ around the front legs of a chair. Kids can silently wiggle and move their feet while seated. The bands can also be used for stretching, movement and heavy work activities to help promote learning and improve concentration.

In the office, many chairs are on rollers, which prohibits a resistance band from being wrapped around the front legs. If that’s your situation, step inside one of our Workout Bands so it’s wrapped around both ankles, sit back down, and pull your legs outward. You can even place the band around your calves or up higher around thighs to work different muscles. It’s a twofer: Your fidgeting is under control, and you get a good leg workout!

Our Workout Bands are extremely reasonably priced. If you or your children or students are bothered by fidgeting, you can purchase a set at Walmart orAmazon for less than $10.

Don’t forget, 94% of our sales are of American-made products that comply with the standards “Buy American” set-aside in conjunction with U.S. government purchases. Consumers who select these products enjoy fresher stock, faster service, better fill-rate and consistent top quality.
