Brittany's Weighted Blanket

A weighted blanket, which is commonly referred to as gravity blanket, is often used by occupational therapists for patients during sensory integration therapy. It's typically used in helping alleviate the symptoms of autism, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, as well as depression. Weighted blankets work by delivering a type of therapy called deep pressure touch stimulation. In one study, researchers found that 63 percent individuals who slept with a weighted blanket felt less anxious. Additionally, 78 percent of people preferred the weighted blanket as a calming modality.
