Blanket Product Information
A weighted blanket provides pressure and sensory input for individuals with autism and other disorders. A weighted blanket can be used as a calming tool or for sleep. The pressure of the blanket provides proprioceptive input to the brain and releases a hormone called serotonin which is a calming chemical in the body.
Types of Blankets

How to Calculate Weight
Total Body Weight x 10% (.10) + 1 pound. Round up to the nearest pound.
Example: (73 pounds x 10% = 7.3 pounds+ 1 pound= 8.3 pounds rounded up to 9 pounds required for a blanket for a 73-pound individual.)
