Weighted Lap Pads apply calming pressure to the lap and upper legs whilst the user is sitting down making them ideal for use in the classroom, at reading time, at the table, in the car, etc. The plastic bead filling is sewn into small cells allowing the lap pad to mold itself to the body or legs. The weight has a calming effect helping attention span and reducing excessive fidgeting.
Our tactile lap pad is made of 2 different materials - strong and comfortable cotton on one side and a tactile fleece on the other.
They are a cost-effective, safe and portable tool for use whenever and wherever needed. The lap weight is filled with plastic poly beads that are safe, washable and are double stitched for safety and quality.
