 Meet TRUBlanket: A Weighted Blanket for Today’s Stressful World  

Imagine a blanket that could give you the same benefits as a full body hug.  Weighted blankets have been used for decades to encourage relaxation and reduce stress. Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation can help just like a massage to help you relax. The heavy weight of the blanket will give you that peaceful sense of calm and safety. 

Now, you can experience the improved benefits of our superior quality weighted blanket for yourself!  TRUBlanket™ is an innovative option for those who find it difficult to fall asleep or need relief from stress and anxiety. 

Many people have found that the power of Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation has been helpful in their search for stress reduction and sleep quality! Weighted blankets are heavy to give you that extra bit of pressure so you feel just right in your bed. Don’t be surprised when you begin to sleep deeper and wake up more refreshed.   

Daily life is high-paced and stressful. When you can relax and unwind, you can rest easier. Your whole life is sweeter. Snuggling into a weighted blanket could be exactly what’s missing in your life!

Weighted blankets are highly regarded by medical experts. They have successfully been used in hospitals and in therapy for decades to support people who experience stress and sleep disturbances.    

Please note: the weighted blanket is not intended to cure or treat any medical conditions, but it's a great support tool.

If You Feel Anxiety and Stress – 77% of Americans report feeling regular physical symptoms tied to stress. We’re always multi-tasking, checking our devices, and generally on the go. Even when we make time to disconnect and relax, we feel wired and sick. It affects our health in many ways, and this is a way to address the gravity of the situation.  

Deep Pressure Touch Stimulation helps you to unwind and relax without the expense of a massage or a day at the spa. The feeling of a full body hug helps your body to relax and your mind to let go of some of the worries. 

If You Can't Sleep - Snuggle up to your TRUBlanket™ and let your mind wander! If your body is comfortable, it's easier to relax. Our heavy weighted blanket is incredibly cozy and pleasant to sleep on. 90% of people who use a weighted blanket report improved sleep patterns. They fall asleep easier, and they sleep deeper. We can't say for sure that you'll experience the same benefits, but it's definitely a great way to support healthy sleeping patterns.

Other Times a Blanket Helps – Those with sensory integration issues, ADHD, autism, or simply normal everyday stress often enjoy to use a weighted blanket. A long ride in the car or over-stimulation can lead to a meltdown, but TRUBlanket™ can provide the comfort to help a child relax.  TRUBlanket is also a great option for those who deal with PTSD, OCD, and a number of other stress-related symptoms. Remember, this is not a cure or treatment, just an aid.

The TRUBlanket™ is designed to be around 7-13% of a typical adult’s body weight. We didn’t stop at creating a blanket that is heavy and letting gravity do all the work. We found ways to masterfully craft the TRUBlanket™ truly to be the best weighted blanket out there. You’ll love snuggling under this blanket on the couch and in your bed!  

First off: shifting weight and crunching sounds. Our unique stitching pattern keeps the weight distributed evenly and reduces noises. It’s anchored at extra points inside the cover, keeping the weight from bunching. 

TRUBlanket™’s weight comes from clean polished glass beads instead of plastics that give off an odor and contain toxic chemicals. You can rest easy without worries.  

Our blanket design also includes an ultra-soft 400 thread count, making the blanket smooth to the touch and very breathable. Your body will always be at the perfect temperature.  

It’s covered with a luxuriously soft plush minky cover that zips up for your convenience.  

We included a high-quality embroidery on the blanket with the word "Happiness". We believe there is power in words, and it's our wish for everyone that uses this blanket to exude joy and happiness!   

Take action! Don’t let bad sleep and stress destroy your health. Get the sleep and relaxation you need and deserve – with TRU Blanket.

We live in high-paced, stressful times. We’re always on the go, without taking time for self-care. Our minds and bodies need to relax and recharge from the constant bombardment of busy daily life and negativity that we deal with. Sometimes it’s hard to stop and just breathe.   

Picture the world outside melting away while you snuggle with your loved ones or pets. Read a good book, watch a funny movie. Relax and enjoy.  

Hi, I’m Jason, founder of TRU Lite Bedding , a family-owned company that specializes in sleep and bedding products. We’re passionately committed to helping families get great sleep, because that can affect every aspect of life. Getting good rest sets you up for healthy relationships, emotions, and physical well-being.  

I guess you could say the TRUBlanket™ is kind of a “family affair.” We discovered the benefits of weighted blankets while looking to help one of my sons, who struggles with anxiety. His symptoms got so bad that he only felt safe sleeping in our bedroom. After reading up on studies showing how weighted blankets can provide support for those suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other related mental health issues, we finally had hope for our son’s peace of mind. I’m delighted to say that it worked with the help of the weighted blanket, nutritional supplementation and emotional work! 

Inspired by amazing changes we saw as the result of a weighted blanket, we set to work creating an improved design for the best weighted blanket out there. That’s how the TRUBlanket™ came to be. With your help, we hope to bring the sense of peace and well-being that we’ve experienced to the world. 

Risks and challenges

Hi, I’m Jason, founder of TRU Lite Bedding , a family-owned company. I have seen great results in my personal life and those around me with the use of the TRU Blanket and I want to share this with many more people. I have brought many products to market in the past and have the experience and knowledge to make sure this project goes smoothly.

We already have manufactured a limited number of blankets and they are without a doubt the best weighted blankets in the market, now we want to manufacture many more of them. Our trusted manufacturing partners need a minimum financial commitment from us to get started on a larger manufacturing run and this is why we have come to Kickstarter to make this dream a reality.
