What is a weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets are heavy blankets filled with weighted materials, glass-beads. The feeling of weighted physical pressure can result in a calming effect. The weighted blanket uses the principles of Deep Touch Pressure (DTP) or Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) to improve relaxation. These blankets come in different sizes and weights, and can be used by kids and adults to increase a sense of calm in their daily lives.
