Weighted lap bags can be used in many places such as the home, clinics, schools or work environments.
They are great at helping those living with SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder), Autism, ADHD, ADD, Anxiety & Restless Leg Syndrome. If you benefit from deep pressure, then this product could be especially helpful, as well as helping to regulate sensory inputs.
Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) can stimulate the release of serotonin in the brain, in turn helping children and adults to be calm, relaxed, concentrate on a task and moderate their sensory input.
An OT may also prescribe weighted Lap Bags to help the child self regulate or if they are over stimulated and need to calm down before attempting a task which requires focus (i.e: coming in from outside, running in the playground to sitting at a table and chair listening quietly to the teacher).
The Sensory Matters weighted lap bags are designed by an Occupational Therapist and will enable the lap bag to ‘mould’ around the user to the shape of their body to maximise the deep pressure sensory input.
It is recommended to consult with an Occupational Therapist regarding the use of weighted products, to ensure it may benefit your child. These Weighted Lap Bags are fully machine washable, are covered by two layers of good quality fabric and are sewn using a heavy weight cotton.
