I saw the need for weighted blankets medical and dental office settings. Weighted blankets exist, but the average weighted blanket is very cumbersome and not convenient due to having to wash in between patients. They are heavy, so to take in and out of a duvet and put in to a washer/dryer not only makes for more wear and tear on the blanket, but doing this on a regular basis is not easy or fun. The dr.b.essential blanket can conveniently hang on the wall, and can be wiped down between patients.
As a Pediatric Dentist I want to help patients feel relaxed, as well as to help patients be still, in order to safely provide treatment. I received my dental degree from UNLV, and went on for advanced specialty training at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry Pediatric Dental Residency. I received training in advanced oral conscious sedation, and work along with healthcare professionals who provide in-office IV and general anesthesia in surgery and hospital settings. Protective stabilization, when utilized during my training, was often achieved through the use of a papoose board. The dr.b.essential blanket is a good alternative to the papoose board and may prevent having to resort to pharmacological methods in order to complete treatment.
We are a locally owned, small business and manufacture right here in the USA. We are helping to make both patients and providers more comfortable for procedures that can often times be nerve racking for everyone.
I use the weighted blanket EVERYDAY for my patients, and it makes such a big difference. I want everyone to be able to have a good experience when they go to their doctor or dentist.
