Weighted Blankets for Seizure Disorder
Seizure disorders, also known as epilepsy, occur when abnormalities in brain neurons are present. When brain cells malfunction, a person can lose consciousness, have uncontrolled movements, or become temporarily paralyzed. Through brain scans and investigation of possible underlying issues, such as infections, metabolic problems, or coexisting diseases, doctors can get a better idea as to how to treat individuals with medications or surgical procedures. After a seizure, the patient can feel physically exhausted and require relaxation and sleep to allow the body to fully recover.
Mosaic Weighted Blankets® use quality fabric and built-in weight to provide the patient with a comfortable way to receive deep pressure touch stimulation. If you’ve ever gotten a massage, you might know the benefits of applying pressure to the body to relieve tension. After the ordeal of a seizure, muscles can feel stiff with overall fatigue. When the patient uses a weighted blanket, the pressure causes the body to produce serotonin. Serotonin is effective in boosting mood, cognitive function, and easing pains. Once the patient is relaxed with serotonin, it transforms into melatonin, a hormone that encourages deep restorative sleep. While medical treatments can lesson seizure occurrences, a Mosaic Weighted Blanket® is a useful supplement that improves function through natural relief.
