Medical TPE for Icho systems Therapy Ball

Ichó is a therapy ball for people with cognitive diseases; It was created to promote cognitive and motor skills in a playful way. It has been specially developed for use in a medical context therefore Mediprene TPE was selected for the outer skin of the therapy ball which houses lights, a speaker, sensors and electronics.

Depending on the application, Ichó can react with coloured lights, vibrations, sound or music so it was important for the Mediprene TPE to have soft touch haptics and good light permeability as well as being easy to clean.

Mediprene TPE are also latex-free, reducing allergy risks which was an essential requirement for this application.
