In addition, these pillows offer numerous benefits for people with and without physical problems.
What is a weighted pillow?
The classic weighted pillow is a product that allows you to exert deep pressure on the legs or other parts of the body when sitting or lying down. The optimal shape of the pillow is rectangular, as it has a variety of uses. Using a weighted pillow can help regulate the alertness of a person with sensory integration problems.
Advantages of weighted pillows
Using a weighted pillow will help you get more in touch with your own body, so you will experience more rest. In addition, deep pressure on your body can cause your alertness to be stimulated or, the opposite, dampened. To learn, you need to be able to process stimuli properly. The extra pressure of the cushion calms hyperactive children and allows children who are easily distracted to concentrate better.
Weighted pillow as an assistive tool for children and adults
The weighted pillow helps with concentration problems and is an ideal product for children and adults who have difficulty processing stimuli. This can be autism, ADHD or a sensory integration disorder, for example. The weighted pillow is also suitable for very active and mobile people and children who cannot sit quietly at school or work. For example, the pillow can be used during class, therapy or other times when the user needs to sit still and concentrate properly. It can be used well during lessons at school, an office job, or of course during therapy.
