Alpha™ is a scientifically engineered weighed blanket, designed to fit your body's ergonomics. Distributing the weight gently and evenly across your body, Alpha is optimized to help reduce stress, anxiety and insomnia. Alpha is an ultimate natural therapy.

It's designed to be 8-12% of your body weight, and made out of premium-grade natural materials. 

Alpha™ blanket is patent pending. 

 

Alpha’s engineered weighted beads gently pushes you downward to help reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Deep pressure stimulation helps release serotonin and melatonin, while decreasing blood pressure and heart rate.

 

For the last few years we've been working together with scientists and medical experts developing multiple prototypes and perfecting our designs.

Weighted blankets have been scientifically proven and used as an ultimate natural treatment in the medical world for treating Anxiety, Stress, Insomnia, PTSD, MS, ASD, SPD, ADHD and more. 

 

Alpha uses special beads allowing it to be 60% thinner than other weighted blankets. The enhanced beads increases the contact surface area by up to 700% for a higher resolution pressure delivery resulting in a softer, smoother feel. Alpha's organically shaped pattern contours your body further optimizing calming.

We have engineered it's material properties to deliver a cooling sensation in the summer and a breathable warmth in the winter.

 We have done blind testimonial and comparison on Alpha blanket VS other weighted blankets. The results were surprising. 

 

 

 

The 2016 Consumer Reports survey on adults said 68 percent—or an estimated 164 million Americans—struggled with sleep at least once a week. According to Sleep Health in America 70% of adults report that they obtain insufficient sleep at least one night a month. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our organically shaped patterns contours to your body optimizing pressure delivery.

Alpha's blanket molds to your body like a warm hug, the pressure helps claming the nervous system. It’s a safe and effective non-drug therapy for inducing sleep and naturally reducing anxiety.

 

 

After years of studying the ergonomics of different body types we have designed Alpha's pattern to optimize form, fit and function.

 

Touch can be highly comforting and essential to our emotional well-being. Deep pressure stimulation produces a calming influence that decreases stress, improves sleep, and boosts mental health.

Create a stress free bubble to escape the busy world at any time. With our low profile, ultra soft design you can use Alpha to relax anywhere such as watching TV, working at your desk or reading your favorite book.

 

Alpha is made out of ultra soft cotton.  Alpha will give you a warm, cozy and comfortable feel that you've never experienced before.

 

Breathable materials help your body better regulate temperature.

Alpha is machine washable and can be tumble dried.

 

 Alpha's texture is smooth and ultra comforting. 

 

 

 

We've customized a range of weight options to fit your body type. 10, 15, 20 and 25 pound blankets are available.

 

You will be able to choose Alpha's weight preferences in the survey after the campaign ends.
