The weighted blanket for sleep, stress, and anxiety

What is a weighted blanket?

Weighted blankets are engineered to be 7-12% of your body weight to relax the nervous system by simulating the feeling of being held or hugged.

This increases serotonin and melatonin levels and decreases cortisol levels—improving your mood and promoting restful sleep at the same time. All without ever filling a prescription.

The Benefits

Reduces Stress & Anxiety

Deeper Sleep

It Feels Fantastic

"It's like Advil PM for your entire body."

"It usually takes me 45 minutes to fall asleep, but I put the blanket on and I passed out in 7 minutes."

"It brings me to a whole new level of Netflix-and-chill."

"After a few nights of sleeping with the blanket, I'm kind of addicted to it..."

The Science

Though weighted blankets have been used in the medical community for many years now, the measurable health benefits have only recently begun to emerge in scientific studies. So far, the findings have been incredible.

Gravity uses the power of proprioceptive input (more commonly known as “deep touch pressure stimulation”), a well regarded therapeutic method that stimulates pressure points on the body linked to improved sleep, mood, and relaxation.

The result is a reduction in cortisol levels and an increase in serotonin production, which decreases heart rate and blood pressure.

Choosing your blanket weight

The blanket is designed to be around 10% of your bodyweight. We recommend sticking to that measure unless you feel strongly that you want a heavier or lighter feel. 


Who is behind Gravity?

Gravity is a health technology company dedicated to improving physical and mental wellbeing through natural, research-driven science. We've spent the last 12 months poring over medical research and studies about the effects of weighted blankets on serious conditions like autism, PTSD, and insomnia.

From there, we set out to use this research to build a product that could help everyone. Through much trial and error, we’ve arrived at a prototype we strongly believe in. After successfully raising over $4.7mm on Kickstarter, we’re now ready to begin accepting additional preorders!

What are the dimensions of the Gravity Blanket?

The Gravity Blanket is 48”x72” and is available in 15, 20 and 25 pounds.

Is the blanket machine washable?

Yes, both the inner layer and the outer shell are machine washable!

I get overheated with conventional blankets. How does this product work with heat distribution?

We designed the warm cover to be removable, this way during the warmer months you can stay cool.

Does the Gravity Blanket work effectively when shared between couples at night?

We would suggest purchasing two if you plan to share with a loved one in order to feel the full experience.

Where can I find the scientific evidence used to back this product?
