ST. LOUIS — One of the hot deals people are searching for right now as Amazon Prime Day approaches is weighted blankets.

Heavy blankets are used for things other than just sleep. According to psychologists, weighted blankets can help with PTSD, anxiety and even ADHD. One of the biggest disorders weighted blankets help with is autism.

The feeling of a weighted blanket is designed to replicate the sensation of being hugged or held which is why weighted blankets have been used for years to reduce anxiety in children. Weighted blankets provide what experts call “deep pressure touch stimulation” or DPTS. If you are someone who struggles to fall asleep or stay asleep, a weighted blanket can make a world of difference.

Weighted blankets have been a popular tool over the past 20 years in Europe and have helped people achieve a better quality of deep sleep. Now they're being used commonly in American households.
