Introducing the new Sensoryline Sensory Wrap developed by Therapists and Sensory Experts to offer a new portable deep-pressure therapy aid. Manufactured in the UK, the Sensory Wrap is available in small and large sizes and available in a selection of colours which are suitable for children, adults and the elderly.
The deep pressure provided by weighted products has a ‘calming and grounding’ effect on the body’s nervous system.
Weighted products are commonly recommended by Occupational Therapists for transitional periods and classrooms to increase attention span and reduce anxieties often seen in children with autism, ADHD, sensory and learning difficulties.
The Sensoryline Sensory Wrap is portable and can be placed on a variety of seats, armchairs and sofas. Simply place the Sensory Wrap in a chair of your choice, sit back and envelope the wrap around your shoulders and position the side flaps over your thighs.
The Sensory Wrap can be used for ordinary relaxation or when the user is enjoying things such as watching TV, sitting with a laptop or reading a book. The product offers plenty of deep pressure feedback aiding concentration when playing games, reading etc. When used in Schools the Sensory Wrap can provide a retreat for children during a busy school day. Sensory Wraps placed in seating areas in psychiatric departments, day-care facilities and hospital waiting rooms provide a calming space in communal areas for patients and users, particularly those who find busy places stressful.
The Sensory Wrap is made from wipe-clean polyester. The internal weights are made from formed medical-grade silicone and are designed to contour the body. The weight gives the effect of an embrace and someone pressing down gently on the shoulders – both being effective and comfortable for the wearer.
The Sensory Wrap and sealed silicone weights are easy to maintain and are washing machine safe at 40 degrees C. For more practical washing, the two side wraps have been designed to be removed by a zip so that they can be washed separately if required. The wrap can be regularly cleaned by wiping with an anti-bacterial solution. Not recommended to wear for prolonged periods.
