By covering the body for sleep, wrapping shoulders while sitting or by folding the blankets and lap pads across laps or legs, weighted therapy products apply comforting pressure where it's most beneficial.

Weighted Wraps for Alzheimer's, dementia and brain related conditions
Most common in people over 65 years old, dementia can cause mood swings, confusion and stress. Caregivers can use weight therapy to help their loved one feel comfortable and secure while sleeping, sitting or in periods of confusion or stress.
Giving a patient a weighted wrap provides comfort through the naturally pleasant feeling of being held or touched. Many have described the added weight of our wraps as the feeling of a hug. Being able to give your loved one a “hug,” even if you aren’t there physically, will help relax and calm during housing transitions, medical checkups or before sleep.
The calm-inducing qualities of weighted wraps and body pads is enough to give deep pressure touch stimulation without being too heavy to remove on their own.
