Multiple studies have shown that weighted blankets replicate deep touch pressure technology. This is also known as pressure stimulation.
This therapeutic technique has been used for years in medical care for people with anxiety, depression, ADHD or ASD. Obviously, it is also an aid for people with sleep problems such as sleep rhythm disorder (also called circadian rhythm disorder), restless leg syndrome or insomnia. Our study shows that weighted blankets cause you to produce more serotonin and melatonin, lowering your cortisol levels. When cortisol in your body gets lower, your blood pressure, heart rate and glucose levels also go down simultaneously.
A weighted blanket is similar to getting a hug, giving you a sense of safety and security. It causes you to relax and thus experience less stress. It can help you fall asleep faster, but is equally helpful to sleep deeper and thus wake up less often during the night.
Hana© weighted blankets have been developed and tested in collaboration with professionals. As a result of this mutual dialogue, our blankets contain heat-conducting glass microbeads. It is often thought that a weighted blanket is very hot and you quickly start sweating once you lie under them. This is not the case with these glass micro-beads, which means they can serve you all year round, even in the summer months. Besides the unique double diamond-shaped stitching, the glass micro beads also ensure that the weight is more evenly distributed over the entire duvet.
At Hana©, we are very much committed to providing good quality products. This gives us a number of advantages over competitors. For instance, our blankets consist of no less than 7 layers, a lot more than the usual 3 to 5 layers in the industry. Because we add two more polyester layers, our blankets last much longer without tearing. Another advantage is that you can wash our Hana© blankets in the washing machine, which is not the case with low-quality weighted blankets. On top of this, we use a loop system which, together with the double diamond stitching and glass micro beads, serves to distribute the weight well over the entire surface. Due to our good quality, we obtained an international OEKO tex 100 quality label. This allows us to guarantee you that our product does not contain any harmful substances.
It is best to buy a weighted duvet that fits your size (or at least to suit your body mass and mattress) and that is why you are in safe hands with Hana©! We offer different sizes of duvet (with cover) and weights for adults and children.
Below you can see a brief overview of adult sizes:
- The sizes with a length of 200 cm are weighted duvets + cover of 120 x 200 cm, of 140 x 200 cm and of 150 x 200 cm.
- In addition, we also sell a weighted duvet with 220 cm length of 140 x 220 cm and 200 x 220 cm.
- We also offer one extra-large size: a weighted duvet + cover measuring 230 x 230 cm.
We will also help you determine the sizes and weights in the scientific explanation under each specific product. To determine the weights, calculate 10% of your body weight. If you are still in doubt between 2 weights, choose the one that weighs the least.
