AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 09/17/12 -- Mosaic Weighted Blankets (http://www.mosaicweightedblankets.com) unveiled a new line of 100% cotton handmade weighted blankets, wraps and lap pads to support the growing number of Sensory Integration Therapy research programs that are being launched to study development and behavioral disorders. The company is now seeking occupational therapists, psychiatrists and physiologists at schools, hospitals and health clinics that want to add weighted products to their Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) research programs. Contact Laura LeMond at (512) 868-0207 for more details.
According to the Journal of American Academy of Pediatrics, "The difficulty of tolerating or processing sensory information is a characteristic that may be seen in many developmental behavioral disorders, including autism spectrum disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorders, developmental coordination disorders, and childhood anxiety disorders."
Many children with SPD like to wear very tight clothing and/or like to wrap themselves up tightly in a blanket like a "burrito" or "taco." Mosaic weighted blankets, wraps and lap pads offer therapists and pediatricians a way to apply the same type of body pressure that SPD patients like to feel against their bodies in order to calm down, relax, and/or sleep.
Many experts correlate the desire for body pressure to how heavy x-ray blankets seem to relax dental patients or why people sleep better under heavy blankets on a cold winter's night.
Mosaic Weighted Blankets provide additional pressure to the body, which causes the body to secrete a hormone called serotonin. Over time the body converts serotonin to melatonin. Melatonin causes patients to sleep better at night and, as a result, focus and concentrate better the next day during therapy sessions.
