Our Journey

We combine physiotherapy practice with playtime.

About Moti Me

 

We are designing a physio product targeted towards children with additional needs and primarily designed as a physiotherapy aid. We want to help children reach key milestones through exciting activities, by encouraging them to practice physiotherapy in a fun way.

 

What the Product Does

 

The product stimulates the development of core physical skills such as coordination, muscle strength, and range of motion through playful interaction. Physiotherapy exercises can be incorporated into playful activities including sit and reach, balancing, 4-point, torso movement, core strength, and tummy time.

Our Philosophy

 

Moti Me believe that all children should have equal opportunities. Many toys have been designed for children with an 'average' level of ability. This means that many children are having to adapt to the toy and will not be able to interact with it properly. Toys should be suitable for all children; at Moti Me, we strive to ensure our products can be enjoyed and used by children of all abilities.
