Gonge products can be used for anything from free play to specific therapy and structured training. Children will develop physical strength and motor skills – including weight transfer, familiarity with heights, physical coordination and agility – as well as sensorimotor abilities such as an awareness of posture, and a sense of touch and balance.
We aim to motivate and challenge children at any functional level to develop their confidence and physical abilities.
Physical activity often involves social interaction. Gonge products encourage children to engage in activities that combine physical and social abilities. Children compete, race, role-play and perform, and they can do so with the aid of our products.
Group play will help to teach them cooperation and coordination, based on physical interaction. They will then learn by imitating the actions of others – probably our most basic way of learning.
At Gonge, we are happy whenever we see our products being used in social activities, because we believe that every child best develops physically, emotionally and cognitively from the responses of others.
Body and mind cannot be seen as separate. When playing with Gonge products, physical activities and sensations become important, helping children to improve their cognitive abilities.
Basic cognitive functions, such as memory, concentration, problem solving and spatial orientation are all vital for many of the physical activities inspired by Gonge. This can be anything from estimating the distance before a jump to developing new language skills when naming, sorting and describing a physical activity. And creativity is stimulated when imagination or curiosity is required, as well as when the physical activity is driven by performing or storytelling.
Integrating physical activity with teaching has also been recognised as a learning tool with considerable motivational potential, and sensorimotor training improves learning through stimulation of the brain.
Winther specialises in manufaturing quality trikes and bikes for children that help develop their physical and motor skills.
