Weighted Blankets are relaxation devices that provide Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS) and studies have shown a calming or restful effect on the body by providing the feeling of a firm hug, holding or swaddling.
Blankets can be used by children, teens, adults, the elderly or anyone who desires the calming and relaxation benefits of DPTS.
DPTS can be helpful for people suffering from;
Autism - Anxiety Disorder - Asperger’s Syndrome - ADHD - Parkinson’s disease - Insomnia - Sensory Processing Disorder - Restless Leg Syndrome - Tension – Fibromyalgia - Alzheimer’s - Dementia - Aggressive Behavior – Stress.
Ingredients/Materials: Cotton Fabric. The filler material we use is Poly-Pellets (also known as PVC pellets), which is a sanitary, non-absorbent and machine washable product.
The Blanket has a cotton inner core of small pockets to distribute the weight of the poly pellets evenly across the blanket. Seams are double stitched.
Each Blanket is approximately 42"x62" and weighs 8.6 lbs.
Machine wash on gentle cycle in cold water. Hang to dry.
We do recommend that blankets heavier than 10 pounds are taken to a local laundry mat to protect the suspension in your home washer.
We believe in giving back to the community and that is why we donate 10% from all sensory products sales to Autism York Region Chapter. Like and follow our page @9senses.ca and help bring support and awareness to this cause.
To avoid the danger of suffocation and/or death, please keep weighted blankets away from infants and people who cannot freely remove the blanket off themselves. The person using the blanket must always be able to freely remove the weighted blanket off anytime they wish. It is recommended any weighted item should be less than 10% of a person’s body weight.
Always seek advice from your Doctor or Occupational Therapist.
