They can have a huge impact on those who benefit from deep pressure, and are especially helpful in assisting the user to regulate their sensory input when it is sleep time, or when they may be demonstrating behaviour leading to a meltdown.

The weighted lap bag can provide Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) for the user and the impact it can have is amazing!

Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) can stimulate the release of serotonin in the brain, in turn helping children and adults to be calm, relaxed, concentrate on a task and moderate their sensory input. Weighted Lap Bags may also be used as part of a 'Sensory Diet' as prescribed by an Occupational Therapist at times for the child to self regulate their sensory input if they are over stimulated and need to calm down before attempting a task which requires focus (i.e: coming in from outside, running in the playground to sitting at a table and chair listening quietly to the teacher).

They are filled with non-toxic Poly Pellets (the same that are used in some teddy bears and soft toys). The pellets are separated into sections to ensure balanced weight distribution. The Sensory Matters weighted lap bags are designed by an Occupational Therapist and will enable the lap bag to ‘mould’ around the user to the shape of their body to maximise the deep pressure sensory input.

This product is made by Sensory Matters, an Australian, family owned and run business, who develop, design, locally manufacture and sell activities and toys designed to be beneficial in many areas of a child’s development. These include fine and gross motor skills, kinaesthetic awareness, core body stability, proprioception, balance, focus and concentration, co-ordination, motor planning, turn taking, tactile discrimination and bilateral movement among others. Sensory Matters products are designed and locally made in Melbourne, Victoria.
