Cotton Sensory Weighted Body & Lap Pad

Use GRAVITY to help calm!
Weighted Blankets, Pads, and Wraps are an effective and drug-free aid in helping to calm the mind and relax those living with Alzheimer's, Dementia, Anxiety Disorders (ADD / ADHD / PTSD), Autism (ASD), Tourette's syndrome (GTS), Restless Leg Syndrome, Menopause and for those who benefit from compression or weighted therapy. By wrapping the shoulders while sitting or by folding the pad to lay across the legs, weighted therapy products apply comforting pressure where it's most beneficial. Our super-soft, 100% premium cotton-fabric weighted body & lap pads are a unique product that can provide relief, comfort and can help supplement sensory disorder therapy treatments.

Weighted pads are ideal for the following conditions:
  • Elderly with dementia - our lighter weight lap pads help calm those with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease
  • Sensory Disorders & Sleep Disorders - weighted therapy can help increase Serotonin and Melatonin levels overnight
  • Insomnia - pressure increases Serotonin which then converts to Melatonin - a hormone that induces sleep
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) - weighted lap and body pads can help with sleep, nightmares and panic anxiety
  • ADD/ADHD Spectrum Disorder - those with ADHD use weighted pads to calm down after school, during therapy sessions or to relax and fall asleep
  • Asperger’s and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) - weighted pads help calm after school, during therapy sessions or to relax and fall asleep
  • Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) - fidgeting legs due to RLS, chemotherapy treatments or Menopause
  • Anxious Feelings + Panic symptoms - Stress, tension, cancer, Dental Anxiety, Peri-menopause and Menopause symptoms
  • Sensory Integration Disorders/Sensory Processing Disorders

MindCare's Exclusive 100% Cotton Weighted Body & Lap Pads | 6 lbs. 20" x 20"

The popularity of weighted sensory products have flooded the market with inferior quality and mass produced knock-offs. MindCare's Premium Cotton Weighted Body / Lap Pad were designed not only to aid those living with anxiety - but to be a beautiful and comforting aid that coordinates with the home, is special to the user and will last for years. Our Premium Cotton Weighted products are made by hand(s), made to order and are constructed of durable and pajama-soft cotton fabrics. Even though our body & lap pads can keep you warm, they are smaller than a weighted blanket and meant to be used on different parts of the body. Lay them on your chest, hips, legs or back. Enjoy the benefits of weighted sensory therapy year round - or combine with your favorite throw for warmth!

Weighted Lap Pads for Alzheimer's, dementia and brain related conditions

Most common in people over 65 years old, dementia can cause mood swings, confusion and stress. Caregivers can use weight therapy to help their loved one feel comfortable and secure while sleeping, sitting or in periods of confusion or stress.

Giving a patient a weighted lap pad provides comfort through the naturally pleasant feeling of being held or touched. Many have described the added weight of our lap and body pads as the feeling of a hug. Being able to give your loved one a “hug,” even if you aren’t there physically, will help relax and calm during housing transitions, medical checkups or before sleep.
The calm-inducing qualities of weighted lap and body pads is enough to give deep pressure touch stimulation without being too heavy to remove on their own.

"Data obtained on effectiveness reveal 33% demonstrated lowering in EDA when using the weighted blanket, 63% reported lower anxiety after use, and 78% preferred the weighted blanket as a calming modality."

Our Premium Cotton weighted products are made by hand(s) in the USA from incredibly soft and durable cotton fabrics. They are breathable, soft and cool to the touch, and will remind you of your favorite pajamas. Each lap/body pad is filled with millions of eco-friendly beads that equally distribute the weight. Weighted sensory products are not meant for warmth, but are designed to apply consistent pressure to the body - they can be used in addition to other throws or comforters for warmth or for sleeping.

MindCare has selected a wide range of styles and color combinations for men, women and children who can all benefit from the comfort of a weighted therapy!

How to wash your weighted lap & body pad?
Due to the weight of our weighted products we always recommend hand-washing and line-drying. If you would like to wash your weighted item in a machine, use the gentle -or- hand wash setting, cold water and dry on low. We do not recommend spin cycles as the machine may become unbalanced. Please monitor your machine closely if you decide to use it.

What are our weighted pads filled with?
Millions and millions of glass beads. Why glass? The glass bead is heavier per square inch than poly pellets, so less raw material is required to attain the same weight. Glass beads also make less sound when moved around - this helps those who need sensory products that do not cause noise agitation. All of our Premium MindCare weighted blankets, wraps, and lap pads are now made from safe, natural, eco-friendly glass beads! Our glass beads are Made in the USA and were selected for insured quality and to help promote domestic business!

The weighted pad is very effective when the patient is agitated. It has a tendency to calm him almost immediately, sometimes. No one particular thing works all the time.

Reviewer: Gary from Chicago, IL  
I wanted a weighted blanket for myself but could not find one made of cotton that also looked cool. I decided I did not need a full blanket so I got the pad. I lay it on my chest at night and it helps me fall asleep. The fabric is very nice and it looks very durable. I'm giving a few as gifts this Christmas. Seems like everyone could use some stress relief this year!
