Sensory Direct's Weighted Lap Pads are designed to apply calming deep pressure to the lap and upper legs whilst the user is sitting down. The weight is provided by plastic beads sewn into small individual cells that mould themselves to the body or legs.
The user experinces the deep pressure from the weight of the Lap Pad which has a calming effect helping attention span and reducing excessive fidgeting.
Because of the size of the Lap Pad, it is a cost effective, safe and portable tool, making them ideal for use in the classroom, at reading time, at the dinner table, in the car or whenever and wherever needed.
The Fire Resistant Lap Pads are made of a material that has been independently tested to BS5852 (part 1 : 1979) and BS7175 (part 3 : 1989). If you would like see a copy of the test certificate please email us.
