Blankets, Weighted

Definition : Blankets designed with inserted objects that locally increase the weight to stimulate the sensory system that are intended to improve sleep and to help calm anxiety and stress. These devices usually consist of soft, flat blankets with inserted objects (typically balls or pellets) made of hard plastics and/or polystyrene, depending on the degree of stimulation required; the blankets are available in a variety of sizes according to the anatomy of the user (e.g., infants, children, adults). Weighted blankets are mainly used to facilitate sleeping conditions in patients (especially children) suffering from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); the blankets may be also used to alleviate chronic pain, and/or to treat patients with other neurologic or psychiatric conditions.
