Our weighted cushions can be especially helpful for individuals who find themselves uncomfortable, fidgety, and find it difficult to concentrate. The weighted pressure acts as a type of deep touch pressure therapy that stimulates the proprioceptive sense to help the nervous system relax.
Our weighted cushion act as a physical and psychological 'grounding' mechanism that calms the body and mind. The visual and tactile sensory input (i.e. colourful and furry textures!) offer similar benefits to our fidget toys, in that they enable the brain to self-organise and filter out distracting excess sensory information from the body and surrounding environment by redirecting focus to the hands through tactile engagement.
The Plastic poly pellet filling provides a fuller, rounder cushion that holds a lovely shape where the Micro Glass Bead filling provides a heavier weight without the bulk. These cushions are approximately 35cm in diameter and are made with a luxury faux fur fabric with a minky soft underside.
