Solutions Webinar – Pumper Car: A Fun Ride On Toy That Encourages Inclusion, Exercise and Focus

June 20, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm PDT

Presented by Jaimi Anderson

Unique Toy Increases Students’ Exercise and Focus

This dynamic presentation will help you tackle two common challenges with students:

  • Motivating them to exercise.
  • Helping to improve their focus in the classroom.

This webinar will highlight two fascinating case studies that demonstrate how exercising one’s body also helps exercise one’s brain. One case is based on Dr. John Ratey’s findings described in his book Spark. It demonstrates how aerobic exercise “physically remodels our brains for peak performance.” The other case is an independent review board study conducted by the University of Michigan. This found that the unique toy (an exercise device) called Pumper Car was useful in engaging all children to exercise and proved especially valuable for those with special needs. This presentation will provide you with valuable information that you and your teachers can use for all of your students.

Learn how the award-winning Pumper Car is a fun, safe, durable and inclusive ride-on toy for children of all abilities. It’s similar to a rowing machine on wheels. The Pumper Car’s unique pump action provides kids with a full-body workout by activating muscle groups in the upper and lower body simultaneously, while creating a smooth, fun ride. Nationally recognized adapted PE teachers have developed curriculums that guide teachers how to encourage all kids to ride and even compete in the Pumper Cars side-by-side. Find out how your school could benefit like others by adopting the use of Pumper Cars to improve students’ health and classroom performance.
