What can fidget spinner do?
Using Finger Spinners to Cope with Anxiety and Stress
Stress and anxiety at work is far from a new phenomenon – toys such as stress balls have been invented in the past to deal with it with varying success. The beauty of a fidget spinner is that they occupy you for much longer and aren’t going to take up all of your attention so you can still complete your other activities while fiddling.
Autism can cause high levels of stress and fear that can be extremely difficult to cope with. So how good would it be if there was a handheld item that sufferers could use to help them out? Now, with fidget spinners, there just may be. These toys are ideal as they let someone with autism alleviate all of their tensions on their own. Moreover, without something like a finger spinner, any stress someone may be feeling could be amplified further with others around. That makes the independence and discreetness of a fidget spinner even more attractive.
Dealing with ADD and ADHD
ADD and ADHD are conditions that don’t go away and that sufferers need to find a way to deal with so that it impacts their day-to-day life as little as possible. Staying focused is the main challenge with either of these, so if a finger spinner can help people who don’t have these conditions, then imagine what it can do for those who are directly affected!
What types do Fidget Spinners have?
While the finger spinner industry is just getting going, there are still a variety of products on the market that have all sorts of functions.
The best-known fidget spinner currently on sale is the dual bar spinner and the one you would most likely purchase as your first spinner. These are basic, easy to operate and spin via the bearings intricately placed inside of them. The better the bearings are, the better a finger spinner will be, and the faster and longer it will spin.
These toys are made from all sorts of materials, but the most common ones are 3D-printed plastic (these tend to have the coolest designs too), wood and metals – titanium and copper to name two.
The tri-spinner is great because you can hold it in a few different places, allowing you to manufacture all sorts of spins. If you have trouble concentration or suffer with any of the aforementioned conditions, then you may enjoy a tri-spinner because of its complexity – there’s little chance that you’ll find them boring.
The quad-spinners also tend to be of supreme quality and are made only of the best bearings available – having great bearings is vital as otherwise your finger spinner will slow down over time and become less fun to fidget with. Quad-spinners are primarily made in 3D-printed plastic or wood, so you can choose between a flash, funky design or a more mature, professional look.
