This large Grey 5kg and 1.5m x 2m weighted blanket and matching 70cm x 50cm pillow case often helps those with Autism and associated Sensory Processing Disorder by providing soothing weighted blanket sensory input. Other than using a night these weighted blankets are also ideal for any sensory room, classroom or for calming sensitive situations in your own home.
They are an effective therapeutic solution, helping sensory seeking children and adults calm their body, helping aid a peaceful nights sleep. The extra weight can help to relieve anxiety and stress.
The weighted blanket for sensory integration is a blanket with extra weight that provides proprioceptive pressure on the whole body. The proprioceptive system is the body’s sensory system, which is responsible for the body’s internal and external signals from muscles and joints. The right therapeutic effect directed at this system helps to relieve physical and emotional stress. The feeling of deep pressure helps to calm down. The weighted blanket can be used as a tool for adaptation during rest at home, in educational, rehabilitation and medical centres.
