There are many reasons why you need Sensory Owl's weighted lap pillow.
Weighted therapy is mostly popular from weighted blankets but you can start with a weighted lap pillow and test if this therapy works for you. Are you suffering from restless leg syndrome? Weighted lap pillow is here to help. They are also great in Sensory Integration Therapy or OT therapy rooms. The weighted lap pillow is compact and easy to store in the classroom or sensory room. They ease anxiety and help to concentrate on the task.
Here are some highlights of Weighted Lap Pillow with soft plushy side:
- individually made-to-order (yep we are making them, especially for you!)
- top side made from 100% cotton. The bottom side is made of plushy minky fabric 100% polyester. Weighted lap pillow is weighted with glass granules
- size: 30x40cm
- the pillow allows the application of pressure to the chosen part of the body
- ideal for use during therapy, in the classroom, and during ‘table’, exercises when concentration is required
- we use fabric pieces left from other projects for a more sustainable approach as we care about the environment as much as you do!
Weighted Soft Lap Pillow is a tool designed to improve attention span. Often used during therapy sessions to extend the concentration on specific tasks. They are also great for reading sessions or even when feeding or during doctor appointments, in the car or playing time.
A sensory-dysregulated child will play with the pillow and love the feel of the pressure applied to the body. This can be a great starting point to introduce weighted therapy tools.
WHAT WEIGHT SHOULD I PICK FOR MY WEIGHTED LAP PILLOW?
There is no research on what weight would be most suitable. We recommend a weight up to 10% of the body weight same as the weighted blanket. Weighted lap pillow is used for shorter and often in situations requiring faster effect. They are easy to put on and off and the user can express how long lap pillow should be used.
If you plan to purchase more than one weighted lap pillow and you use it for a larger group of users then it is a good idea to take a few different weights and perhaps colour combinations.
FABRIC TYPE SPEC
This specific cotton has a high count of 270-280gsm. It is sturdy but gets very soft when in use. Minky plush fabric is also high grade and it is soft and pleasure to touch. Both fabric type are durable and it is Oeko-Tex certified.
Cotton is breathable so it regulates the body temperature better. It is recommended for warmer seasons and for people who do not like getting hot.
