The Hand Spinner or the Finger Spinner knows a real enthusiasm especially among the youngest. But its success had already proved its worth with an audience of children with behavioral disorders. explanations:
In 1997, Catherine Hettinger filed the Fidget Spinner patent. A simple concept: A tool holding on a finger and moved by a simple push of the fingers of the other hand. His patent, being unable to pay the $ 400 to protect him, was abandoned. However, the Hand Spinners that we see spinning on the fingers of our blond heads, have little in common. In any case, what the inventor said when asked the question at the time of the boom of these toys from Asia.
It is in 2017, that the Finger Spinner knows a real success with the therapists. The tool is then presented as a therapeutic object in its own right. It focuses attention. In any case, the argument was defended … For other behavioral disease specialists have denied this claim as reported by Jennifer Callas of the Times.
However, why have such claims been raised?
This toy, which is very easy to use, allows the router to operate by means of an easy-to-execute tactile action.
By asking parents of atypical children, they report that their children often have a fascination with light (turning off / on), water and sand, especially when it slips between their fingers. This simplified report, with gentle, easy-to-execute gestures, would enable them to truly interact with their environment, with an effective causal link and stimulation of sensory functions.
From there to propose the Hand or Finger Spinner as a true therapeutic tool?
Nevertheless, the success of this pocket gadget brings together all the children.
