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.
The weights are sewn into individual pockets in the blanket fabric. Measuring 140cm x 120cm these blankets are designed to be used on top of existing bedding such as a duvet. Also great for sensory rooms, the car or on a chair/sofa when some calming time out is needed.
Our blankets are the only weighted blankets with a CE marking and are registered as a medical device with the MHRA (Medicines & Healthcare Regulatory Agency)
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 4.5 kg blanket is suitable for someone with a minimum body weight of 45 kg.
