A natural solution for a stressed-out society.

What is a weighted blanket?

Weighted blankets are designed to reduce stress and anxiety by mimicking the sensation of being hugged or embraced. They come in 15, 20, and 25 pound varieties depending on your body weight.


But they're more than just a feeling. Weighted blankets have been shown to increase serotonin and melatonin levels, and decrease cortisol—improving your mood and fostering restful sleep at the same time.

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 (also 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 helps to regulate heart rate and blood pressure.

Choosing your blanket weight

Weighted blankets are designed to represent around 10% of your bodyweight. We recommend sticking to that measure unless you feel strongly that you want a heavier or lighter feel. 


FAQ

Who is behind Gravity?

Gravity is a health technology company launched in partnership with Futurism Labs dedicated to improving physical and mental wellbeing through natural, research-driven science. We spent more than a year poring over medical research and studies about the efficacy of weighted blankets for patients with autism, PTSD, and insomnia.

We then set out to leverage this research to build a product that could help everyone. After much trial and error, we finally arrived at a prototype we strongly believe in. Since then, we've raised over $4.7mm on Kickstarter, and are now ready to begin accepting additional preorders!

What are the dimensions of the Gravity Blanket?

The Gravity Blanket is 48”x78” and is available in 15, 20 and 25-pound varieties.

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

Gravity was designed for year-round use. All orders include a warm outer shell for the winter months, and a breathable base layer for the summer months.

Is the blanket machine washable?

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

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

We suggest purchasing two blankets if you plan to share with a loved one. This way, you can both take full advantage of its benefits.

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