Weighted blankets don't just play hormones, they also help people with diseases such as ADHD, autism, Alzheimer's and more.

Who can benefit from the weighted blankets ?

Weighted blankets can be beneficial for sleep disorders of all kinds. Although studies are limited, they can help treat insomnia, fall asleep and stay asleep.

 

"Weighted blankets have been the phenomenon over the past year" said Bill Fish, a certified sleep science coach. People are beginning to understand the benefits of using a weighted blanket to achieve the recommended seven to nine hours of quality sleep on a nightly basis.

 

According to a 2015 study, it has been suggested that weighted blankets may have a beneficial calming effect, especially in clinical conditions. A weighted blanket can provide an innovative, non-pharmacological approach and a complementary tool to improve sleep quality.

 

Conditions that could benefit from weighted blankets include:

How do you choose the perfect Better Sleep weighted blanket for you ?

  • 1) WEIGHT
  • 2) SIZE
  • 3) MATERIALS

Our weighted blankets are between 5 and 30 pounds. A wide range of different weights is available, but how do you know which one is right for you?

 

Your own weight will help you determine the right cover weight. Indeed, when choosing a weighted blanket, the most important criteria to consider is weight. You need to choose the weight that is right for you in order to get the desired effect. According to many studies, it is recommended to take a coverage of about 10% to 12% of your body weight, as shown in the table beside.

 

For children or older adults, the formula is 10% of body weight plus one to two pounds. A lower weight will not give the full effect desired, while too much weight can be dangerous for the individual, especially for children.

We offer 3 different models of soothing blankets with varying sizes and weights to meet different needs. However, it is important to understand which size is best for you so that you can get the most out of the therapeutic effects offered by our Better Sleep blankets. The size you choose will therefore depend on your body size and the size of your bed.

 

However, it is strongly recommended that you choose the weight of your soothing blanket before focusing on the waist. For example, if you weigh 120 pounds but have a Queen size bed, we recommend a 10 pound or 15-pound blanket instead of a 20-pound blanket for safety reasons.

 

 

Weighted blankets are different from each other, especially when it comes to the choice of materials used in the design. For our Better Sleep blankets, we use a manufacturing process that combines 7 layers to prevent glass beads from escaping or piling up in a corner of the blanket. Here is a diagram that illustrates the design of our blankets:

As we can see in the picture, we use non-toxic recycled glass beads in our blankets to repel humidity.

How to wash your blanket ?

Our weighted Better Sleep blankets are very easy to clean. Simply remove the cover from the weighted blanket and put it in the washing machine. You can wash any Better Sleep blanket in cold water, with a small amount of liquid detergent and in gentle mode. We recommend that you clean the weighted blanket if it is always used with a cover, but it can also be washed alone if your washing machine is powerful enough. Both should be air-dried for maximum quality and durability of the cover.

 

Here is a summary of the instructions:

  • Cold water
  • Delicate cycle
  • Wash with similar colors
  • Do not dry clean
  • Hang to dry
  • Do not iron
  • Do not use bleach

Which cover to choose ?

We offer several different covers to meet the different needs of consumers and the different temperatures of the year. Here are the four covers we offer:

A few safety tips

  • Do not use weighted blanket on very young children (children 5 years of age and under should not be left unattended with the soothing blanket).
  •  

    If you suffer from severe claustrophobia this product is not recommended for you.

     

    Do not completely surround or wrap young children in the blanket, simply cover them with it.

     

    Although adults are more resistant to a heavier blanket, please ensure that very young children do not take blankets heavier than 10% of their body weight.

Why give this blanket to a child? The reason is simple, without you even knowing it your child could be suffering from stress or anxiety. The Better Sleep is a weighted blanket that relieves insomnia and reduces stress and tension. You have browsed through our different models of weighted blankets and you don't know which one to choose for your child? Fortunately, this guide will help you to know what are the important elements to consider when you will making your purchase.

Statistics

  • - In 2017, 41,727 children and adolescents and 50,357 adults lived with ADHD in Quebec alone, according to the newspaper La Presse.

- The stress rate even climbs to 60% among teenagers aged 12 to 17. For children 11 and under, one-third of them are stressed (34%).

 

If your child is experiencing stress or you have the feeling that he or she is stressed, we have the solution for you.

Choosing the right weight

For children or older adults, the formula is 10% of body weight plus one to two pounds. A lower weight will not give the full effect desired, while too much weight can be dangerous for the individual, especially for children.

Start of use

The Better Sleep Junior Blanket for children is an ideal therapeutic tool for working on developmental and sensory integration disorders. We suggest starting with a short use, gradually increasing the use to a full night, so that the child's body can adapt to the weight. An adult's body will adapt faster than a child's body. It is therefore essential to give your child this adaptation time in order to fully benefit from the effects.

 

The positive effect of weighted blankets on sleep and well-being has been scientifically proven. This is why Better Sleep Junior blankets for children are now considered medical products. They are part of the daily therapy of specialists and help many parents to work on their children's sensory development and improve their sleep.

Which child should use it ?

  • More than ever before, children are exposed to stressful situations in their daily lives and it is important to know that too much stress is harmful to their health. According to researchers at Hopkins University, one child in five suffers from anxiety in the United States. We must therefore find ways to remedy it, and that's why Matika came up with the 7- and 10-pound blankets, specially designed for children. The people who use our therapeutic blanket the most are children with ADHD, who are autistic or who experience a lot of anxiety.

How to wash your blanket ?

  • Our weighted Better Sleep blankets are very easy to clean. Simply remove the cover from the weighted blanket and put it in the washing machine. You can wash any Better Sleep blanket in cold water, with a small amount of liquid detergent and in gentle mode. We recommend that you clean the weighted blanket if it is always used with a cover, but it can also be washed alone if your washing machine is powerful enough. Both should be air-dried for maximum quality and durability of the cover.
