POSITIVE EFFECTS OF A WEIGHTED BLANKET ON INSOMNIA

March 25, 2019

Journal of Sleep Medicine and Disorders

Insomnia and sleep deprivation effect almost 30% of the people from any age group in the western countries. Insomnia has impact on mental and physical wellbeing. A 2015 study from Sweden used weighted blankets for insomnia patients. Improved sleep quality and quantity was shown with using weighted blankets.

The  weighted chain  blanket  used in  the present  study  had a  positive  impact  on  sleep,  both  objectively  and  subjectively, where a number of physiological and behavioral measures were improved  during weighted  blanket  use. 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.  In conclusion,  a weighted blanket may aid  in reducing insomnia  through increased tactile and  proprioceptive  inputs,  may  provide  an  innovative,  non-pharmacological approach and complementary tool to  improve

IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF HUMAN BODY WITH FAR INFRA-RED RAYS REFLECTING TEXTILES

March 25, 2019

Current Trends in Fashion Technology & Textile Engineering

With the recent developments of nanotechnology the textile industry introduced health fabrics which emit far infrared energy. FIR energy can penetrate up to4 centimeters (about 1-1/2 inches), exciting the vibrational energy of molecules and resonating with cellular frequencies. It is clinically proven that FIR emitting fabrics promote metabolism and blood circulation in the body.
