Patient comfort is key! Which is why we designed the world’s first Medical Grade Lap Pad, a multi-patient lap-pad made with people’s comfort in mind. Two years ago Hippo Hug recognized the healthcare industry’s focus on non-medical calming interventions. So we took our tried and true design and focused on what healthcare and medical environments wanted – an easy and efficient way to comfort and calm patients that meets infection control standards. Our weighted lap pads are space saving, portable and they can be used just about anywhere.
Our Lap Pads come in three standard sizes – 4lb, 8lb and 11lbs. Our Medical Grade Lap Pad is easily wiped clean with single-use disinfectant wipe or you can add a removable cover for an additional layer of comfort and cleanliness.
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
