The blanket was launched for seniors, people recovering from surgery, or any consumer seeking extra warmth with a location to hold devices.
Seniors often feel cold due to decreased circulation in their aging blood vessel walls that have lost elasticity over time. As fat layers thin from age, the body demonstrates a decreased ability to conserve heat.
LapWrap aims to decrease temperature discomfort for seniors with the Warmer Upper. The soft lap throw consists of Polartec Thermal Pro and is knit with polyester yarn for warmth. It provides maximum heat yet is lightweight enough to not put pressure on fragile seniors or those recovering from surgery.
The throw is designed to allow someone to sit on it while having ample material left to wrap over their legs. This forms a second layer of heat protection from underneath. It works particularly well for individuals in wheelchairs. The design helps to avoid the throw slipping through the back of the wheelchair, falling onto the floor, or becoming tangled in the wheels and pulled off the chair.
The Warmer Upper features a see-through and touch-sensitive pouch that prevents personal devices from getting lost, unlike with bulky blankets, or falling to the ground upon standing. In addition, a 6ft universal extender cord is included with purchase to allow consumers to charge their personal devices inside the pouch.
A satisfied customer stated: “This is my favorite “go to” blanket when I am heading out the door to my kids’ games. Cold bleacher seats no more. It is brilliantly designed for sitting. I can sit on part of it and the other half folds perfectly over my lap. Best part is the fact that I can pop my phone in the clear pocket and know exactly where it is when I stand up to cheer! I can’t tell you how many parents have asked where I got it.”
