The Adaptive Climbing Wall, with its companion activity guide, helps instructors effectively include youth with special needs in their climbing program. The smooth, dry-erase and magnet-accepting surface can be written on and accepts magnets to provide learning opportunities for children with cognitive or communicative disabilities. The Adaptive Holds include grab-bar style hand holds and ledge-style foot holds to provide stability and extra support for children with physical disabilities. The color-coded Groperz™ Hand Holds offer a variety of additional options for climbers to use as they travel across the Traverse Wall®. Green hand holds are the largest and easiest to grip. The yellow holds come in a variety of sizes and offer a light challenge. The red holds are medium sized and provide the most challenge. Climbers can choose to use any color hand hold, or try the extra challenge of climbing using only hand holds of the same color. Our signature Red-Relief Line® is a safety feature that reminds climbers to stay within a distance of three feet from the floor and is a helpful tool for the climbing wall supervisor. Make rocking climbing more accessible with the Adaptive Climbing Wall!
It’s the ideal climbing wall for adapted or inclusive physical education, occupational therapy and physical therapy and provides opportunities to develop balance, body awareness, muscle strength, motor planning and more. Climbing also provides proprioceptive input to improve sensory integration. The Adaptive Climbing Wall is also well suited for special education classes where learning and movement can be integrated and problem solving, visual attention and concentration are required.
Each 4′ x 8′ Adaptive Wall section includes sentence building, word and math magnets, Adaptive Climbing Holds, Groperz Hand Holds, 66 preset placement options for mounting hand holds, the Red-Relief Line, Adaptive Climbing Activity Guide and dry-erase markers.
