Weighted toys & blankets are used as part of occupational therapy for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, stress, ADHD, anxiety, restless legs and other Sensory Disorders and can also be great for older patients in nursing homes too. The therapeutic use of weight and deep pressure to the muscles and joints allows the central nervous system to interpret and integrate proprioceptive and tactile input.
The main reasons for using weighted products are to calm, improve focus and attention, improve body awareness and to decrease sensory seeking behaviours. They have been invaluable in the treatment of children who do not properly process sensory stimuli.
Please note inbuilt into price of each pad is additional surcharge of $10 for postage due to size and weight of product
