Therapressure Brush (Wilbarger Protocol) - Ideal for De-Sensitising Feet
Genuine Wilbarger Brush - designed for use with the Wilbarger Protocol, but also great for desensitising feet.
Sensory brushes can be used on any area of the body. For some children, gentle brushing helps to de-sensitise the feet before putting socks on.
If you don't have an Occupational Therapist to advise you on brushing protocol, we recommend you let the child brush their own feet so they can control the level of input.
Designed by Patricia Wilbarger, this brush has many improvements over the Pressure Brush ("corn brush").
- Oval in shape, the brush has a greater density of bristles for more consistent treatment
- Comes with a comfortable handle
