You can’t bring a weighted blanket everywhere you go. Which is why we created Hippo Sit Weighted Lap Pads.
Our weighted lap pads were designed for use in offices, classrooms, travel, group therapy, nursing homes or even at home on the couch. They are a wonderful way to receive deep pressure therapy on a portable, space-saving scale. Our weighted lap-pads are ideal for calming motor restlessness or to promote attention and concentration.
Each Hippo Sit Weighted Lap Pads is ‘Made in Canada’ at our Calgary shop. They measure 12″ x 24″ and come in three standard weights – 4lbs, 8lbs and 11lbs. They are designed for ease of use, using waterproof material to cover the weighted disk system and you can add a removable cuddle cover to make cleaning quick and easy. Simply remove the cover and launder and wipe the lap pad clean. The cover’s pocket design is good for kids who need to fidget without distracting classmates; seniors who have hand tremors or cold hands and it also works great if you have travel anxiety and want weight on your lap and a handy place to store your book/electronics.
