What are the mats made of?

The orthopedic mats are made of non-toxic, high quality Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).  While Antibacterial and Footballer Set are made of MASFLEX TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) material. This antimicrobial material containing silver ions provides a “protective” effect and prevents bacteria from lingering on the surface of the mats. Such antibacterial protection cannot be washed off or wiped off – it remains active for a long period (more than 5 years), and the antibacterial effect remains throughout the entire life of the product. Free of harmful lead, BPAs, and phthalates. Hypoallergenic PVC material odorless and non-slip, unlike most competitors, so whole family won’t be distracted from the game and massage. The structure of materials (PVC, TPE) in Orthopedic playmats holds their shape avoiding shrinking deformation, while its composition prevents penetration of dust particles preserving the beautiful appearance of the product.

At what age should Orthopedic PlayMats be used? 

The most foot massage mats can be used when you baby starts first attempts in walking. Generally it happens around 1 year old. Some mats are better to be used after 2 years old, each set has a recommended age of use in their description. We recommend to start from the set Baby as it includes only soft tiles that will be perfect for “the first time walkers”. Also it's important to know that kid's feet are developing all the way till 6 years old, that's why it is important to engage in the prevention of flat feet with the child. Your child should walk barefoot on uneven surfaces (sand, grass, pebbles, massage mats, etc.); performing exercises to strengthen the muscles of the lower leg and feet - walking on toes, on heels, on the outer edge of the foot, rolling of the feet, gripping small objects with the toes, etc.
