SMALL LAPMAT (PATENTED)

The Problem:

Wheelchair athletes were using floor mats or a wide variety of cushions to protect their legs in the event that they dropped a barbell during a lift. The shock of a barbell being dropped on your lap is quite severe even with smaller weight loads. We tested this by dropping an empty barbell on our laps in a seated position. The ensuing force that we felt from less than six inches away, with a thirty-five-pound barbell, was eye-opening.

The Solution:

The LapMat™, as the athletes so named it, is the solution. The LapMat™ is available in two sizes to accommodate the different body types of Adaptive Athletes. We manufacture the LapMat™ in the mid-west and handcraft each and every one within our facility.  It is designed to not get in the way during a workout, but also be readily available when you’re pressing a barbell overhead or any other weighted movement.

Design Criteria

The top of the LapMat™ has a custom foam that is designed to absorb shock, and the bottom foam is for protection of the legs. You can also turn the LapMat™ over and use the bounce of the bottom foam for wall ball workouts. There is a rigid piece between the two foam cushions to absorb shock and diffuse the weight across a larger cross-section of the athlete's lap. The straps are specifically made to alleviate abrasions and maintain the integrity of the skin.
