Who can use the therapeutic blanket? What are the risks?

The vast majority of the population can safely use the therapeutic blanket, as proven by scientific study (https://www.researchgate.net/publication/233228002_Exploring_the_Safety_and_Therapeutic_Effects_of_Deep_Pressure_Stimulation_Using_a_Weighted_Blanket). However, we do not recommend its usage for children under the age of 2 and for those people who have difficulty removing weight on their own, as there may be a potential risk of suffocation. The weighted blanket may also be not suitable for people with the following problematics:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • Claustrophobia
