Children can sway mildly or wildly, lie, be seated or even stand in the Membrane Hammock. Children of all abilities will take joy in the responsiveness and social interaction in the hammock. Pushing and pulling the friends from side to side is fun and also builds arm strength. The swaying motion supports important motor skills such as the sense of balance and the sense of space. The rhythmic movements support the understanding of rhythm. In combination, these three skills assist the child's ability to navigate space securely, for instance when judging distances and speed in traffic. The sense of balance is fundamental for all other motor skills and helps the child's motor stability: preventing falls and being able to sit still for longer periods of time.
