Here she is using the Therapeutic Merry Muscles with the bucket seat which is used for gentle swinging. The exerciser has adjustable sides to allow for proper fit and growth. It is suspended from a barndoor track in the high pitched ceiling of a car port. She enjoyed being in the sunshine where she could watch the boys on their dirt bikes and be exposed to the smells and the noise.
