Autism-Products.com proudly introduces the Weighted Blanket!
Our weighted blankets are manufactured with safe, non-toxic steel shot sandwiched between two outside layers in a proprietary laminating process. This allows the entire blanket surface to be weighted, not just individual sections, providing proprioceptive feedback to children who need overall calming sensory input.
This exclusive design allows the therapist to choose the amount of
weight needed (by adding additional blankets) AND to position the weight
exactly where it is needed. Both sides of our blanket are made of a
softly textured fabric, to which Velcro® hook materials will adhere easily.
Available in 5 sizes:
3 lb., 30" x 40"
4 lb., 40" x 50"
5 lb., 30" x 58"
10 lb., 58" x 58"
20 lb., 58" x 58"
Most therapists would suggest a blanket equal to 10% of the individuals body weight plus a pound or two.
Machine washable in cold water. Tumble dry on low.
