The Weighted Blanket is an valued and commonly used tool for sensory stimulation and cognition in several target groups. Blankets are available in children and adult sizes, several weight classes, and consist of heavy fiber fillings sewn into narrow canals across the comforter.
The Weighted Blanket provides the same experience of a regular blanket, except it is heavier. The additional weight provides the user with proprioceptive sensory stimulation, which helps calm the sensory apparatus and the central nervous system.
The Weighted Blanket can be washed at 70 degrees Celsius (158.0 °F) and dried in the dryer. The materials of the comforter are flame and fire retardant.
