The R-Lap Cushion facilitates the ‘knee-to-knee’ technique for oral exams in pediatric dentistry. This technique has advantages over the ‘mommy wrap’ (whereby the guardian lies on the chair and wraps arms around the infant or toddler), because with this device, the child is able to see mom's/dad’s face while she/he controls the child's movement. This is reassuring for both child and parent. The R-Lap Cushion flexes with the baby, allows the tilt-back to feel more secure, and creates a cleaner, safer environment for all involved. It is made from a non-latex, cushy form that is comfortable for the patient, easy to use, and easy to clean.
