How do weighted blankets work?
Weighted blankets apply pressure to the afflicted person, known as “deep touch pressure.” This pressure has a calming effect, almost like a hug. This soothes and relaxes the users, helping them to ignore distracting stimuli which may normally keep them awake.
Weighted blankets are often suggested as a therapeutic treatment for many medical conditions. Although most often associated as a treatment for children with Autism, weighted blankets can be used to treat both children and adults with a broad spectrum of conditions.
