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 Options
We offer two weighted filling options: Plastic Poly Pellets and Micro Glass Beads.
The benefits of plastic poly pellets as a filling provides a fuller, rounder cushion that holds a lovely shape, particularly for lighter weights of 2kg & 3kg options.
The benefits of micro glass beads as a filling provides the option for a heavier weight without the bulk, so we can offer this filling as the same size cushion in additional 4kg & 5kg options. The price of each cushion increases $10 per kilogram.
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.
