Patient comfort is key! This is why we designed the world’s first Water-Resistant Medical Grade Weighted Blanket, a multi-patient blanket made with patients’ comfort in mind. Two years ago Hippo Hug recognized the healthcare industry’s focus on patient comfort. So we took our tried and true design and focused on what healthcare and medical environments wanted – an easy and efficient way to comfort and calm patients that meets infection control standards.
Our blankets come in three standard colours – medical-grade navy, grey PUL and galaxy PUL. All our blankets are made from water-resistant fabrics that can easily be wiped down with disinfectant wipes or thrown in a front-loading washing machine. Hippo Hug Medical Weighted Blankets can be heated in a blanket warmer or cooled as requested. The edges are reinforced with binding tape and our unique, proprietary weighting system that involves specially designed disks ensures that they are entirely hypo-allergenic.
Where have our Water-Resistant Medical Grade Weighted Blankets been successfully integrated into patient care?
Our Water-Resistant Medical Grade Weighted Blankets have been used in:
- Acute Care/Hospitals
- Long Term / Seniors Care Centres
- Physcology/Counselling Offices
- Dental/Orthodontic Centres
- and by Paramedics and First Responders
Set your practice apart by enhancing the patient experience!
We had great success with the blanket with one patient, who went from yelling A LOT to hardly at all. We have been trying them out with other patients and having different options has been helpful.~ Carla Loftus Clinical Nurse Specialist, Psychiatry Consultation-Liaison Teams, Sinai Health System
