Patient comfort is key! This is why designed the world’s first Medical Grade Weighted Blankets and Lap Pads that make patients more comfortable.

Our weighted medical line is designed to provide soothing compression that mimics the feeling of being hugged or held. Deep Touch Pressure from the blanket calms the sympathetic nervous system. This allows patients to feel calmer, have more focus, and be more in control of their behaviour.

Our medical items are made with breathable fabrics and our proprietary disk system ensures the weight doesn’t shift when the patient moves. They are sized to fit on a standard hospital bed and you can add a removable cover for an additional layer of comfort and cleanliness. We meet infection control standards because our Medical Grade Blankets and Lap Pads have no extra seams or quilting. They are easy-to-clean with disinfecting wipes or sprays.
