Terapy beanbags are most concerned with your personal health and wellbeing. The fabric used in Terapy beanbags is a special blend of stretch cotton, which enables the bag to shape itself according to the body, equally distributing your body weight and releasing pressure on the spine. Our beanbags are recommended by several physiotherapists and widely used by individuals with a physical or learning disability.

Tiny holes in the outer cover can easily be stitched up. Stitches in the outer cover won’t affect comfort. In case you opt to replace the old cover with a new one, separate outer covers can be purchased through our website.
Like holes in the outer cover, these can easily be stitched and won’t affect the beanbag’s comfort. Losing a bit of filling are not to be worried about since the bag contains a large amount of filling. Therefore small loss of filling won’t affect the bag’s comfort.
Check if the zipper in the inner cover is properly closed. Possible holes in the inner cover could cause leaking. Like holes in the outer cover, these can easily be stitched and won’t affect the beanbag’s comfort.
The filling used in Terapy products consists of a special high quality manufactured EPS (expanded polystyrene) pearl. Most beanbags make use of recycled EPS flakes, made from shredded insulation sheet or used package material. Unlike most beanbags, the EPS pearl used in Terapy bags is non-recycled and brand new. This allows greater comfort and improves durability.
In order to maintain comfort your Terapy product may require a one-time refill. The EPS filling used in our products can be ordered through our website. These EPS pearls are a special manufactured high quality EPS type and differs from the type of EPS filling used in most beanbags, which usually consists of recycled shredded EPS flakes. Using a different filling in a Terapy product may affect quality and comfort.
The outer cover can be machine washed at 30˚C. To avoid fading, we recommend washing the entire cover instead of using a cloth for removing stains. The inner cover cannot be washed, you probably wouldn’t like to see your house being covered in EPS filling! Removing stains on the inner cover can be done using a wet cloth.
It depends on the frequency of use. On average, a Terapy beanbag may need a refill after about one year of using. It also depends on your personal preference of course. Some people prefer a somewhat softer beanbag and even remove a slight bit of filling right after purchase.
Remove the outer cover before refilling. By removing the outer cover, the zipper of the inner cover containing the EPS filling will be exposed. Unzip the inner cover while opening the bag containing the new EPS by cutting it open at the corner, creating a funnel. When refilling your Terapy product, occasional spilling of EPS may occur. Therefore make sure to refill the beanbag in a spacious room which can easily be vacuumed.
Our products can be used indoors as well as outdoors. When used outside though, refrain from placing it on rough surfaces to prevent damage to the outer cover. After applying sun block or body lotion, use a towel to cover the bag when seated. In case of staining, remove the outer cover and wash at 30 degrees.
Not every pet is the same, therefore it is hard to say whether your cat or dog may be able to damage your Terapy bag. Some cats love dozing off on top of a Terapy beanbag, some cats may put its paws into it. Therefore you may opt for placing your Terapy bag in a place inaccessible for your pet. In case your beanbag does get damaged, don’t worry. Any holes in the outer and inner cover can easily be stitched up. Stiching the beanbag won’t affect comfort.
Here’s a little 7-step guideline for (re)-placing the outer cover on your Terapy product:
1. Turn the cover inside out.
2. Each of you grab one corner of the cover.
3. Then grab one of the corners of the inner cover, make sure you get hold of a bit of filling.
4. Pull the outer cover over the inner cover, until about halfway.
5. Turn the bag upside down and push down the inner cover holding the filling.
6. Each grab a side, lift the bag up and shake to make the inner cover slide down into the outer cover.
7. Finally, zip up the outer cover and make sure the corners of the inner cover are well aligned with the corners of the outer cover.
It’s a tricky thing at first, but eventually you will manage!
Because beanbags shape and adapt to one’s body, getting up from one could be quite a challenge. Suggestions about how to get out of a beanbag include pushing off with both hands simultaneously or simply rolling off sideways. Moreover Baloo allows for an up straight-seated position, just like a chair.
That’s easy! First, place Baloo in a vertical position. Place your back against Baloo’s side while grabbing his sides with both hands. Drop your knees, lean backwards and let yourself drop into his belly. Click here for more instructions.
Place the side with the zipper and its two corners downwards. Take the two remaining upward facing corners. Pull one corner up while pushing the other corner down towards the floor. Click here for pictures.
