FAQs

Our Aussie team custom-makes each weighted lap so that it will calm and relax you. We make them for people with:

  • Severe anxiety that hurts their ability to experience joy;
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD);
  • Neurodivergence, including Autism and ADHD;
  • Difficulties in concentrating or sitting still.
  • Dementia;
  • Sensory processing difficulties;
  • Big feelings of overwhelm that make it difficult to be calm and present; and
  • Depression.

To get the calming effect, just put the weighted lap pad on your lap. Then continue with whatever you were doing.

You can use it at work or school to help improve focus and productivity.

Use it in the car to feel calmer.

And it’s great for relaxing at home while reading, watching TV or doing a hobby.

The weight is supplied by micro glass beads.

These are incredibly fine and – unlike poly pellets – have no sharp edges that could disturb your focus.

They are also silent, unlike poly pellets that can make whooshing and rustling noises.

You can wash your weighted lap pad on cold, gentle cycle. Dry it flat or on the line.

Please do not tumble dry.
