Amit Janco just got her Octaband and used it with kids at a children's festival last Saturday in Indonesia at the Panchoran Retreat Nyuh Kuning Village Kids Festival. "It was AMAZING! There was a lot of gawking and curious questions when I first took it out of the bag, but within minutes kids gravitated over and were eager to try it out."

Helen Oliver in the UK reported that using her new Octaband with older adults provided "A refreshing change to our sessions and presented opportunities for people who usually watch to get involved. It brought smiles to lots of faces, there is no doubt your product is fantastic. All the staff raved about it as well. I found the size perfect too, as there was no hassle moving people around or bringing chairs closer together. Getting straight into the activity I think made a big difference for us. We did arm sways, lifts and pulls to the tune of ‘The Entertainer’ which was great fun. As the music accelerated it added a bit of excitement; everyone loved it so thanks again."
Sandra Sneiderman, dance movement therapist at True North in Maine, did a demo with the Octaband for an open house with some other clinicians and one brave client. "They loved it."
And dance/movement therapist Melissa Sabatini alerted me to the fact that "your wonderful Octaband creation will be featured in part of Roger Williams' "Pink Glove" dance supporting Breast Cancer Awareness this year." When the film is completed, I'll include a link.
