Benefits Of A Weighted Blanket?
Provide Comfort and Security
Weighted blankets are said to work in the same way a tight swaddle helps newborns feel snug and cozy. Many people find these blankets help them doze off more quickly by promoting a sense of security.
Ease Stress and Soothe Anxiety
A weighted blanket may assist someone in dealing with stressful thoughts and anxiety, as those things impede quality of sleep.
Improve Sleep Quality
Weighted blankets use deep pressure stimulation, which is thought to stimulate the production of a mood-boosting hormone (serotonin), reduce the stress hormone (cortisol), and increase levels of melatonin, the hormone that helps you sleep. This may help improve overall sleep quality.
Disclaimer: With any product offering medical benefits, it is wise to proceed with caution. Anyone who has persistent sleep problems should talk with a doctor, who can best assess their situation and determine whether a weighted blanket could be an effective part of a comprehensive treatment approach.
Are Heavy Blankets safe?
Weighted blankets are generally considered safe, if the person using the blanket has enough strength and physical dexterity to lift the blanket off themselves when necessary to prevent suffocation or entrapment. For people with certain medical conditions, including those with chronic respiratory and circulatory problems such as asthma, low blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and claustrophobia, a weighted blanket may be inappropriate. Because of potential danger of being trapped underneath, children, infants, and toddlers should not use weighted blankets.
Origin of Company
It all started in 1970, when Frank Roberts injured his back while playing tennis. He discovered that many patients had been operated on more than once, without necessarily having their back pain relieved. Enduring discomfort and frustration from his chronic backpain led him to design a portable, brace-like backrest out of fiberglass. It could support the spine in any chair, car seat, or bed. Production started in 1980. It is an ergonomically correct portrayal of the contours of the spine, made of stiff yet resilient polycarbonates and reinforced plastics and upholstered in foam and hypo-allergenic fabric. ObusForme was the name he gave it and his company.
