The science behind it. Why does the Kocoono Weighted Lappad help to get you focused?
A Study of Occupational therapists' published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy shows how Pressure Therapy increases on-task behaviour during fine motor activities, like scribbling, colouring, drawing, and writing.
By activating the sense of touch, the Kocoono Weighted lap blanket can help keep children and adults from becoming distracted by other sensory stimulations, such as sounds, and help them stay in their seat and keep focused on their tasks longer.
The pressure therapy on the lap can help them go from one activity to another and help them concentrate on the task.
