Our Weighted Lap Cushions are excellent sensory tools that uniquely combine the benefits of a weighted blanket and a fidget toy together!
With triple the sensory benefits, our weighted lap cushions can improve focus and attention, reduce stress and anxiety, and assist self-regulation of emotions and behaviours.
Weighted Filling: Micro Glass Beads
Recommended for: Individual body weight 20kgs +
A good rule to keep in mind is that weighted products should be light enough that they can be removed by the individual, but heavy enough to acheive benefits. It's all about individual sensory preference! We've chose the 3kg weight as it is our most popular and is suitable for both adults and children.
Size: Our Weighted Lap Cushions measure approximately 35cm in diameter and are made with a luxury faux fur fabric with a minky soft underside.
How do they work?
Weighted Lap Cushions are used by placing them on the individuals lap whilst sitting (either at home, school or work station) and can also be used whilst laying down and placing the cushion on the chest, stomach or back to alleviate anxiety.
Similar to our weighted blankets, the weighted pressure acts as a type of deep touch pressure therapy that stimulates the proprioceptive sense to help the nervous system relax. The weighted cushion acts as a physical and psychological 'grounding' mechanism that calms the body and mind. The visual and tactile sensory input (i.e. colourful and furry textures!) offer similar benefits to our fidget toys, in that they enable the brain to self-organise and filter out distracting excess sensory information from the body and surrounding environment by redirecting focus to the the hands through tactile engagement.
Our weighted cushions can be especially helpful for individuals who find themselves uncomfortable and fidgety, children who are seen as 'wiggly' that can't keep still, and individuals who sometimes find it difficult to concentrate and get easily distracted. Make your brain happy with our Happy Senses Weighted Lap Cushions and feel better in style.
