Weighted Blankets Can Help With:
Sleep Disorders Weighted blankets are ideal for treating sleep disorders like insomnia. Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation helps trigger the release of Serotonin and Melatonin while you sleep, helping you to fall asleep faster and deeper, while keeping you asleep longer.
Anxiety Disorders Anxiety, panic attacks, stress, tension, illness, menopause, can all be eased using Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation. Swaddling or cuddling up with a weighted blanket can help you or your loved one feel better and ease the mind, allowing for complete relaxation.
Autism Spectrum Disorder Weighted Blankets are commonly used in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation can help soothe and ground users, acting as a physical anchor when overwhelmed.
Restless Leg Syndrome RLS and leg fidgeting resulting from chemotherapy treatments or menopause can be treated through Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation as well.
How Do I Select The Right Weight For Me?
As a general rule, you should choose a blanket that’s approximately 10% of your body weight. We encourage you to test out different weights in our stores, however, as personal preference will inform your final purchase decision.
If you require a weighted blanket for medical reasons, we encourage you to consult your physician occupational therapist for advice. Among adults, our 15lbs blanket is our best selling blanket, while our 10lbs blanket is the most popular with older children and teens.
For children it is important to use the guidelines suggested by occupational therapists, 10% of body weight plus 1 pound. This formula provides therapeutic benefits and prevents the child from feeling stuck under their blanket.
How Big Are Our Weighted Blankets?
Our weighted blankets don’t follow traditional bed sheet sizings. That’s because they’re not just intended to be used in the bedroom. They can be folded across your lap while watching TV, taken in the car on rides, spread out on the couch for naps, and so much more.
Our weighted blankets range from 78” x 48” (198 cm x 122 cm) to 80” x 86” (203 cm x 218 cm). Our single person blanket is a personal blanket, and covers roughly the area of a twin bed. We don’t make full or queen size blankets because the excess spread would be wasted on the bed. Ideally our blanket should cover from your chin to over your feet.
How Do I Wash My Weighted Blanket?
