Safety and careful monitoring is a priority.
This weighted blanket should be used at the direction of a professional therapist or by a caregiver who has been advised and trained in its use and application.
Careful supervision is advised to ensure appropriate and safe use. It is advised that weighted equipment should be no more than 5-10% of the child’s body weight.
Assessing safe weight
One of the generally accepted principles of calculating the correct blanket weight is to take 10% of the user’s body weight and then add a pound. E.g. – if you have a child that weighs 5 stone this equates to 70lbs (5 x 14lbs). Take 10% of 70 lbs = 7lbs add a further 1 = 8lb blanket.
Weights can not be removed.
