This study tested a group with mild-to-moderate insomnia. When the participants used the weighted blanket, they had a calmer night’s sleep, with a decrease in movements. Subjectively, they believed that using the blanket provided them with a more comfortable, better quality, and more secure sleep.
Study looking at 42 children (ages 8 to 13), half of whom had attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. For kids with ADHD, the weighted blanket reduced the time it took to fall asleep and the number of middle-of-the-night awakenings to a level comparable to children without ADHD.
One of the reasons why deep touch pressure works is because it has been shown to increase serotonin in the body in this study. Serotonin is a chemical in the body that works in conjunction with other hormones to decrease blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety, and regulate mood. This ultimately has a calming effect on the body.
