Our New spiKEYring is here!
It has been 2 years in the making. Having these finally arrive is super personal, for many reasons, both due to lived experience & clinical relevance.
The SpiKEYring DUAL set is discreet & can be kept on hand, in the pocket, bag or keyring.
It has a fidget loop securing 2 detachable double sided sensory supports for tactile input, picking support and 'hurt' without harm. See videos
Each set contains a PVC hard pad & a softer silicone Pad plus a fidget loop.
- BLACK or PURPLE double sided textured pad with silicone bristles in two different shapes.
- BLACK double sided textured pad with PVC 'spikey' bristles in two different shapes both providing 'ouch' without harm & picking support.
- Detachable Fidget Loop that can clip onto bags, keyrings, anywhere.... Can unscrew the cuff to attach or also to remove one or both pads.
They have been primarily developed by Kaiko as harm minimisation tools that provides 'hurt without harm' & surfaces to 'drag' finger nails over as a picking support tool. They are helpful for those that benefit from deep, focused pressure to assist with regulation and respond well to high sensory input.
SILICONE PAD Approx 8cm x 3cm. (Purple or Black) This dual sided pad is soothing for many to brush over the fingers & skin, 'pick' at with finger nails. It has some flex to it also. A great tactile sensory support.
PVC PAD Approx 7 cm x 3 cm (Black) This dual sided pad is more abrasive & rigid. Great for putting in palm of hand ans squeezing for 'ouch'. Can 'pick' at these bristles also however they are more rigid than the silicone ones. Can also press into skin. Please note extensive dragging across skin can cause reddening and, if prolonged, skin breakdown so supervision &/or an alternative tool is required if the person using is likely to use in this way.
A little neurospicy overshare & fun fact: We thought we got super clever with the name - it's a SPIKEY & its a KEYRING. so SPIKEYRING... But.... not the easiest to say lol... hmmm...
