Patient comfort is key! So we designed the world’s first Medical Grade Lap-Pad. This multi-patient lap-pad was made with patients’ comfort in mind and is a space-saving, portable therapeutic aid that can be used just about anywhere.
Our Lap Pads are available in three standard sizes – 4lb, 8lb, and 11lbs and can be made in medical-grade navy, grey PUL and galaxy PUL. All our medical-grade blankets and lap-pads are made from water-resistant fabrics that can easily be wiped down with disinfectant wipes or thrown in a front-loading washing machine. Hippo Hug Medical Weighted Blankets can be heated in a blanket warmer or cooled as requested. The edges are reinforced with binding tape and our unique, proprietary weighting system that involves specially designed disks ensures that they are entirely hypo-allergenic.
Where have our Medical Grade Lap Pads been successfully integrated into care?
For patients or clients a weighted lap pad is an easy way to self-soothe while you’re sitting or slightly inclined. Developed for patient comfort and easy to clean our Medical Grade Lap Pads have been used in:
- Acute Care/Hospitals
- Long Term / Seniors Care Centres
- Physcology/Counselling Offices
- Dental/Orthodontic Centres
- and by Paramedics and First Responders
Set your practice apart by enhancing the patient experience!
We had great success with the blanket with one patient, who went from yelling A LOT to hardly at all. We have been trying them out with other patients and having different options has been helpful.~ Carla Loftus Clinical Nurse Specialist, Psychiatry Consultation-Liaison Teams, Sinai Health System
