Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2019219152A1] An aid comprising an elongated centrepiece for positioning adjacent to the torso of a person and wherein said centre piece comprises a top and bottom edge as well as two opposite side edges, each of said edges is connected to at least one wing with a weight fillings, whereby said wings when unfolded extend away from said centre piece in four different directions and whereby they point towards each other when folded towards the centre of the centrepiece and thereby enclose a person positioned adjacent to said centre piece. Thereby, the user of the aid is stimulated by the weight filling arranged in the wings, said stimulation imitating the nature of a hug or similar physical human interaction stimulating the secretion of hormones affecting the well-being of said user. The build of the aid allows for a versatile use, e.g. in chairs or while laying down. The aid may be used in versatile environments, including at home, in institutions, during transportation, during therapy, and the like. Further, the aid is easy to use, easy to clean and easy to handle. Further, the aid is less stigmatising due to its design, which better simulates the arms and legs of another human being than a weighted blanket or vest, the latter two being specifically designed with the weight filling in mind, rather than a resemblance of a human body.
