WEIGHTED GEL LAP PAD - 10"x 18"
This item cannot be shipped if the temperature is below freezing.
This lap pad weighs a little more than 5 pounds. The weight provides proprioceptive feedback which allows the user to sit comfortably for longer periods of time. A grounded, secure feeling and increased focus and concentration encourage attention to tasks and activities. One result is that wanderers are encouraged to stay seated for longer periods of time.
Sensory Stimulation and Sensory Activity Pads
Our Gel-Filled Sensory Stimulation Pads come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors, and are designed to calm agitation by providing visual and tactile stimulation. All are covered in durable vinyl and filled with a safe, water-based gel which provides tactile interest and comfort. The pads contain glittery stars that respond to touch adding an appealing visual activity that reinforces eye-hand coordination.
The heat sealed gel pad can be wiped clean with a damp towel or disinfectant. It shouldn't be laundered. Although the gel is non-toxic, the pad should be discarded if any tears are discovered. The gel and vinyl are phthalate compliant but should not be eaten or chewed.
The pads can be heated to provide further comfort to hands.
***DO NOT HEAT IN MICROWAVE!*** Put in hot water until desired temperature is reached.
