weighted Products

Weighted products increase focus, promote calm and reduce anxiety by providing the body with Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation (DPTS). They are often used by children and adults with autism, mental health issues, insomnia, ADHD, Restless Leg Syndrome, anxiety or sensory processing disorder.

There are a range of weighted products available on the market that include weighted blankets, weighted vests and weighted toys. These items provide pressure to the body similar to hugs, cuddles and squeezes which can stimulate the release of serotonin in the brain which promotes calm and allows the person to regulate their sensory input. This assists people with sensory issues to achieve calm, be more relaxed and to concentrate more on tasks.

Weighted Blankets: These blankets are great at helping people with insomnia, restlessness, adhd, autism and are available in all different fabrics, colours and sizes. You can even choose your filling with many suppliers offering the choice of micro glass beads or poly pellets. Occupational Therapists are increasingly advising a child or adult with special needs, or who may have sleeping and/or behavioural problems to use a weighted item, particularly a weighted bed blanket, lap blanket, toy or vest.

Weighted Vests: These items apply pressure to the wearer, particularly around the upper body region and are recommended by therapists for children and adults with autism, sensory processing disorder and adhd. They promote calm, reduce anxiety and can be worn in any environment including school or at home. They are able to be worn over normal clothing.

Weighted toys: These are a hugely popular and trending item. They are usually weighted animals and are great at reducing anxiety and helping children to sleep. They are even effective tools for students at school to use as lap buddies and increase their focus and concentration in classrooms. Weighted toys are available in a big range of weights and sizes. Whether you prefer a small, weighted koala or sloth for an anxiety reducing lap buddy at school or a large weighted elephant to lay with at night to help you get to sleep, there is a weighted toy to suit everyone.

School teachers and parents are utilising weighted lap blankets and other weighted objects for kids in the classroom and at home as a means of avoiding meltdowns and keeping their students or children focussed and on task for longer periods.

We have a range of quality products to suit all budgets. Our blankets are customised to maximise the deep pressure touch effect and all our weighted items come in many different weights and sizes to suit each individual. Occupational therapists recommend the weight of a blanket should be no more than 10% of a person’s overall body weight.
