The weighted lap pad is made from soft, comfortable and nonflammable material. The weighted lap pad is an effective tool to help individuals stay seated and focus. The weighted lap pad provides self-regulation to help users stay calm and organize. Every persons sensory system is different, please speak to an occupational or physical therapist to determine the ideal weight and usage schedule. The lap pad weights fit into the weight channels that are sewn across the lap pad. These small channels keep the weights in place and evenly distributed within the channel. Hook and loop closures at the ends keep weights securely in the lap pad. Lap pad includes a metal weight puller to help insert the weights into each channel.
