Sensory Pack of 5 x Weighted Cushions
What are the benefits?
Weighted lap cushions can be effective sensory solutions to reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and attention, and enhance positive mood and emotions. With benefits for just about anyone, weighted lap cushions can be used for comfort, focus and relaxation.
How does it work?
The weight acts as a type of deep pressure touch therapy that results in feeling grounded, comforted and calm in a physical and psychological way. When the weighted pressure is deeply applied to your body, serotonin is produced, which lifts your mood and your nervous system relaxes. The serotonin then naturally converts to melatonin and your body feels comforted and calm, enabling your mind and body to relax and rest.
How are they made?
All our weighted lap cushions are handcrafted with the highest quality and care in Newcastle, Australia. We use high-grade, recycled, non-toxic plastic poly pellets to weight our products. We then double stitch and double layer with four layers of fabric to ensure the best strength and durability for all our products.
The Happy Senses mission is to make the benefits of sensory therapy available to everyone through our funky designs, high quality materials, luxurious textures and gorgeous colours in a variety of inclusive products for all ages and abilities.
Spot clean or gentle handwash entire cushion in cold soapy water.
Lay flat outside to air dry in shade.
What weight should I choose?
The recommended weight for a weighted lap cushion is approximately 10% of the individuals body weight. This can also vary depending on the individuals sensory needs or preferences.
Weight: 10kg - 25kg = 2kg Weighted Lap Cushion
Weight: 25kg - 40kg = 3kg Weighted lap Cushion
We recommend that the 2kg weighted lap cushion is best suited for children up to 10 - 12 years, and the 3kg weighted lap cushion for adolescents and adults. Not recommended for children under 3 years.
