Clinical follow-up study Somna® Blanket
An extensive study with 199 psychiatric patients with affective and ADHD diagnoses have been made at Karolinska University Hospital Huddinge in Sweden. 139 of the patients used a Somna® Blanket. The patients’ sleep were evaluated before and after four weeks use of the blanket and after one year.
The use of weighted blankets reduced the median time to fall asleep from 70 to 30 minutes and led to a significant improvement of ten other sleep-related symptoms at the follow up after four weeks. After one year the positive effects on sleep were still maintained.
The study has been followed by a controlled study which is anticipated to be published during 2020.
