Fidget spinners are simple (and cheap) gadgets that spin in your hand. They come with an inline skate and ball bearings, some can spin for 2 minutes or more while you’re working, hanging out with friends or trying to relax. These spinners are made from an ABS plastic and contain four sets of 608RS ball bearings (one in the centre and three around the sides).
How do they work
Fidget spinners are about as simple as can be. Inside the three-spoke gadget is an area you hold with a finger and thumb. Then, with another finger, you flick one of the spokes and let the spinner spin
Do fidget spinners really help ADHD?
Most companies that make fidget spinners say their products unequivocally address ADHD. The makers say that fidget spinners can captivate a person’s attention and get them to focus better on one thing at a time. While there is evidence that gross motor activities can help with attention, there are no studies available yet on fine motor skills like this.
There is a body of evidence from occupational therapy on other “sensory approaches” to improve mental health, which have also gained popularity over the past decade. The idea is that engaging the senses through smell, sound, or touch — using aromatherapies, music, fidget toys, or fabrics — can calm people, relieve distress, and help regulate emotions.
