Weighted Blankets help people with all kinds of illnesses and conditions…including:
-Autism Spectrum Disorder
-Brain Trauma Injuries
-Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
-Infants and Premature Babies
-Restless Leg Syndrom
-Pervasive Development Disorder
-Sensory Processing Disorder
-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Now, How do you decide what SIZE to get?
In order to be most effective, a weighted blanket should be between 5-15% of a person’s body weight. If you are looking at trying to save money, it is better to go down in size and keep the appropriate weight. That range is especially best when fitting children.
As a general rule, the range is this:
-children from 30-100 lbs should be considered for a 5-18lb blanket that is 40×50 (3-9 years approx)
-youth/adults from 45-200 lbs should be considered for a 7-22lb blanket that is 40 x 60 (10 years +)
-adults from 60-250lb should be considered for a 9-30lb blanket that is 40 x 70
Also available: Weighted Animals as well as Lap pads (Hippo Sits) and Shoulder pads too!
Each blanket is custom made to your fabric selections, weight, and dimensions and takes between 1-6 weeks to receive, depending on the size of our collective orders.
