Lap Pads - Basic



  • This lap pad is for people who need extra physical input in their major muscles, like leg muscles, in order to help with regulation, focus and feel settled. 
  • Easily removable, washable cover.
  • No worry about a leaking insert - made with two layers of separately stitched fabric.
  • Channels keep the weights evenly spread. 
  • Cover is lined to keep its shape, and spills are less likely to be absorbed into the insert.
  • Use on other parts of the body, especially when lying down to help with regulation.
  • Cool in a freezer for morning use to awaken a slow responder.
  • As part of the natural sleep cycle, our temperature drops slightly. Using a cooled flat friend to gently cool the body prior to bed can aid some people to fall asleep faster.
  • Caution: the wrong amount of weight can be irritating.
  • Caution: lighter weighted lap pads can be thrown.
  • Cover Material: 100% Polyester exterior. Poly/cotton broadcloth lining.
  • Insert Material Exterior: Poly/cotton broadcloth or wipeable vinyl is being introduced soon. If interested in the vinyl-covered insert, please ask.
  • Insert Material to Provide Weight: Poly pellets, glass bead or steel shot, depending on the weight. 
  • Proudly made in Canada
  • Size: 18 x 51cm / 7 x 20 in. New, shorter length is also being considered. Contact us if interested in a shorter lap pad.
  • Price includes cover and insert.


  • Are overwhelmed by sensations in their environment.
  • Have poor body awareness.
  • Find weight relaxing.
  • Have difficulty focusing unless there is additional input.


  • Check cover and insert regularly for wear.
  • To wash cover: Remove insert.  Match all hook and loop tape so hook side is covered.  Machine wash on gentle cycle or hand wash using detergent.
  • To dry cover: Lay flat to dry or tumble dry on low heat. To prevent wrinkling, remove from dryer when slightly damp.
  • To clean insert: The cover should prevent the need to clean the insert.
  • We are considering changes in our insert, so to help both past and present clients, all cleaning options will be described here.
  • If the exterior is a wipeable vinyl, please wipe with a damp cloth.
  • If the exterior is cloth, all except the rice can be immersed in water.
  • Rice was the filling for the old .9 kg / 2 lb insert.
  • The 2.7 kg / 6 lb and the 4.5 kg / 10 lb inserts have steel shot, which can rust. The rust colour may show on the outside of the insert if left damp too long.
  • Never put a damp insert into the cover. 
  • To dry insert:  
  • Wipe vinyl exterior with dry cloth or air dry.
  • Allow cloth exterior insert to air dry completely before putting into cover.
