Who can benefit from a weighted blanket or lap pad?

Weighted lap pads and weighted blankets are recommended by occupational therapists for…

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Alzheimer’s / Dementia
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Anxiety / Depression / PTSD
  • Insomnia
  • Restless Leg Syndrome
  • Sensory Processing Disorder

How do weighted blankets and lap pads work?

Weighted blankets provide relaxation and a grounded feeling. They work like a hug (and like deep touch pressure provided by Occupational Therapists) to release seratonin, the body’s happy neurotransmitter, and melatonin, the body’s natural sleep regulating hormone. They also provide a secure, grounded feeling for those struggling with sensory issues.

How are they constructed?

Weighted blankets are created with a grid of sections, each filled with a calculated amount of filling, so the weight of the blanket is evenly distributed across the user’s body.

We reinforce our blankets with 1 seam and 2 top-stitches made with strong polyester thread. This creates a triple border to keep the glass microbeads contained so your blanket can be washed in a machine washer/dryer (see instructions below).

Flannel material is made of 100% cotton and brushed on both sides to provide a soft, slightly fuzzy texture. It’s often used for pajamas and plaid shirts.

Filled with glass microbeads. We use glass microbeads because they are washable, non-allergenic, non-porous, virtually indestructible, smoother and more “fluid” within the blanket, and 3 times denser than plastic pellets used by many others in the industry. This makes our blankets thinner, easier to fold, maneuver, wash, and transport.

How do I wash my weighted blanket or lap pad?

Weighted blankets/lap pads may be cleaned in your home washer and dryer. We recommend that you place weighted blanket in center of a full load of other clothes/towels/blankets to maintain balance. It is also recommend to use a front load washer so that blankets don’t get tangled on the center agitator. For blankets heavier than 14 lbs, cleaning in an industrial washer/dryer may be preferable. Not responsible for damage to washers/dryers or blankets due to washing.

Are there any medical concerns?

Please consult with a medical professional if the intended user has any medical condition that may be affected by the weight of the blanket, such as circulation or muscular issues.
