What is a weighted blanket?

Studies show that Weighted Blankets contribute to a significant reduction of anxiety and stress. They help release a hormone called serotonin, with the simultaneous reduction of cortisol, also known as the stress hormone.

When covering ourselves with a Weighted Blanket, we get a pleasant sense of security and tranquility. As the result our body and nervous system calm down. We witness a significant increase of the production of serotonin, also known as the hormone of happiness, and melatonin - the sleep hormone. All this makes it easier to fall asleep or relax.

The Senso-Rex ™ Weighted Blanket is more than just a therapeutic tool - it's also perfectly designed product that can be used year round.

Who is it for?

How does weighted blanket differ from a duvet?

Duvets are usually filled with synthetics or feathers. In the case of Weighted Blankets, they are filled with micro-glass beads, that produce the acquired weight and ensure that the weight of the blanket is evenly distributed over the entire length & width. They are so small that we cannot really tell they are there plus they are hypoallergenic. In contrast to down duvets our Weighted Blankets are made using ultra-soft organic cotton which is fully breathable, but still maintains the optimum temperature and effectively protects against cold.

fights stress

The perfect solution for stress

Challenges at work, heavy traffic, notifications shown on the screen of our phone or a constant presence in social media, they all have a significant impact on our brain and thoughts. Stress, undoubtedly, is an inseparable part of our lives, but it becomes a problem when we are exposed to it for a long time. It makes our body and our mind suffer.

help in falling asleep

Effevtive help with falling asleep

Deep relaxation caused by the pressure of a Weighted Blanket makes us fall into a deep sleep in a short time without waking up at night. A peaceful sleep is essential for maintaining health and regenerating our body and mind. Before falling asleep, remember not to illuminate yourself with blue light (TV, smartphones, laptops). Another important aspect is the right temperature in the bedroom (18 - 21 ° C), easily digestible foods and having your last meal at least 2-3 hours before falling asleep.

Too little sleep or its poor quality have a significant impact on our productivity, and can also lead to a number of health problems, such as diabetes, overweight or heart disease.

Healing Embrace

The pressure created by the weight of the blanket creates the same pleasant feeling as being hugged. As a result, we feel calm, "loved" and supported.

Made in Europe

Made in Europe icon

All our Weighted Blankets are custom made in Europe using ultra-soft and breathable 100% organic, hypoallergenic and certified cotton - Oeko-Tex 100 Standard. The blankets are quilted and sewn into square sections to create pockets for the glass micro bead filling, that will produce the acquired weight and ensure that the weight of the blanket is evenly distributed over the entire length & width.

Many weighted blankets available on the market are filled with plastic beads. We prefer their glass version, due to the higher quality and milder effect on the body.

The glass beads are made in the Czech Republic and consist of 85% silica (SiO2) and sodium oxide (Na2O).

The glass beads help to keep the blanket breathable while still creating a consistent temperature that feels pleasant and warm, but not too warm.

The Gravity Blanket ™ cover is made of soft velour on one side and velvet on the other side. It is also made in Poland. One part of the blanket is covered with a delicate material, while the other part consists of square elements. Both are pleasant in touch and on the skin.

All the other Weighted Blankets do not have this type of cover.

Our products work well for people struggling with allergies, as they are hypoallergenic.

We promote a sustainable production process and we believe that efficiency, social responsibility and environmental protection are inseparable from each other. It is crucial for us that only environmentally friendly products should be used throughout the entire production process. An equally important role in our company is played by attention to sustainability and fair working conditions in the production of our blankets. For example, the light in our production plant is obtained from solar energy. We segregate all waste. In some of the processes, we engage people with mental and physical disabilities, giving everyone equal opportunities to do paid work. We use only environmentally friendly, biodegradable raw materials to pack our products.
