YONAHUG – NEW Sensory Direct Weighted Blankets

Weighted blankets have been widely used for the calming effect they provide. Research has proven that Weighted Blankets;

  • Promote a calming effect
  • Encourage relaxation and better sleep
  • Provide a safe and effective therapeutic solution
  • Prevent melt-downs and repetitive behaviours
  • Relieve anxiety and stress
  • Ease transitions




To date Weighted Blankets have been used as a medical device. They provide ‘weighted therapy’ for those living with Autism and Sensory Processing Disorders. Now, the same effects provided by Weighted Blankets are being used for a broader purpose;

  • To aid insomnia
  • Reduce restlessness associated with stress
  • Calm the effects associated with PTSD and Trauma
  • Stroke Victims

The list is endless.

At Sensory Direct our primarily goal is to help people, and to provide a variety of products to suit varying abilities and conditions. We are very proud to now offer a new Weighted Blanket in our established range –the YONAHUG Weighted Blankets. Introducing this new Weighted Blanket means there is now a blanket for everyone, whatever budget or condition. You will get the same quality, customer service and support from Sensory Direct.
