How do I know if my carpet is compatible?

Check your carpet with regular hook Velcro (the scratchy side). If regular Velcro sticks so will MyBurrow®. We have sourced the high quality super strong Velcro so if regular Velcro sticks you will have no trouble with the attachment.

How do I choose the right size for me?

Size selection is dependent upon the number of and physical size of children. As well as the size of your base/floor space. Think about how MyBurrow® will be used in the space and by the user/s.

How can I create a base if I don’t have compatible carpet?

To create a base there are 2 things to keep in mind. 

  1. Ensure that the base is Velcro compatible. Economical options include marine pile carpets from hardware stores or compatible loop-pile rugs.
  2. Create a base that is rigid. Using a carpet on its own, without securing the sides, will cause the sides to come up as the user engages with the Lycra panel.   Securing the carpet to a rigid board or floor allows the user greater control over the panel’s pressure feedback.

How is MyBurrow® different to a body or bed sock?

We have a great blog about the key areas of differences between MyBurrow® and other comparable products. 

What safety issues need to be considered?

MyBurrow® has been tested for and passed safety, flammability and toxicity standards by Australian standards.  Supervision is required at all times. MyBurrow® utilises Velcro to create a quick release attachment. Such an attachment makes MyBurrow® consistent with non-restrictive practice guidelines. Do not allow the user to put their hair onto the Velcro strips.  Not for use by individuals with medical limitations. Please check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
