Weighted blankets are often recommended by occupational therapists as an effective way of helping sensory seeking children to calm their body and relieve anxiety and stress. The deep pressure from the weights often help those with Autism and associated Sensory Processing Disorder and are safe to be used in a sensory room, classroom or at home.
Size 140cm x 120cm - the classic weighted blanket is an ideal size for a bed and has the weights sewn into individual cells.
Not sure which weight of blanket you need?
OT's generally recommend that the weight of the blanket should not exceed 10% of the user's body weight. So a 3 kg blanket is suitable for someone with a minimum body weight of 30 kg.
