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 provide 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.
Size: This blanket is approximately 42x62" and weights 8lbs. It is quilted into squares to evenly distribute the weight and the edges are reinforced with double stitching.
Care: Machine washable in cool water on a gentle cycle, similar to how colors are washed and let air dry.
Disclaimer: To avoid 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 advise from your Doctor or Occupational Therapist.
