Sensory Workout

On March 5, 2019, Aptus was funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation to update 4 activity spaces to offer an in-person Sensory WorkoutThe gym was enhanced with equipment to tap into one's proprioceptive sense (balancing, reaching, etc.). "Lilypads" were added to the gross motor room which allow people to softly or vigorously jump. The V.R. room had an Optimusic system installed which offers 8 beams of light that respond to movement and signal different visuals and music. In the multi-sensory room, the acoustic waterbed was repaired to offer a range of sensory inputs that can soothe or help rev someone up to engage in activity.  

Aptus was funded by Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2020 to design a Sensory Workout program that could be accessed by people across the GTA, whether in person or virtually. Aptus' clinical team created a 4-part series with learning for professionals, families and people of all abilities. Each learning module has activity videos to access fitness that is sensory based.
