Providing care for children and the elderly is a challenging job in and of itself. With autism and alzheimer's growing more prevalent each year, it is important to find ways to meet their special needs. In both cases, sensory stimulation is key to soothing individual's and controlling behavior with beneficial outcomes. Most of these patients have trouble sitting still and do not feel balanced. The Skil-Care Weighted Lap Pads provide multi-sensory stimulus to achieve that grounded feeling while decreasing agitation, increasing attention span, improving finger dexterity, and reducing wandering. Using sensory stimulation is a great alternative to the use of restraints or sedation. Skil-Care and Mountainside Medical offer other sensory stimulation products.
