Weighted Blankets can be an effective therapeutic solution for those with sensory issues such as Autism. They can provide a soothing sensory stimulus through pressure on the body, similar to the feeling of being held, hugged or cuddled. This can have a calming effect, helping to relieve stress and anxiety.

As a Charity, any profit made from every purchase goes back to helping families with disabled children.

Important Information on weighted products

  • Always consult with an Occupational Therapist or health professional before using a weighted blanket or other weighted product. Weighted products should be used with suitable supervision at all time.
  • They are not suitable for very young children.
  • Use the correct weight of the product, we would suggest that a weighted blanket, does not exceed 10% of the user's body weight. This weight recommendation is however only a guide, please consult an Occupational Therapist or Health Professional.
  • The person using the weighted product should be able to remove it at all times; this is essential to prevent them from becoming uncomfortable or overheated. Do not roll someone up in a weighted blanket under any circumstances.
  • Weighted products are not suitable for people with certain conditions such as epilepsy, heart conditions, breathing difficulties or circulatory problems.
  • The user should not be left under a weighted blanket overnight as they can become overheated and uncomfortable. They are best used as an aid to relax a person before bed and while they get to sleep. Ideally, they should then be removed.
