Gravity® Blankets are safe. Children under the age of 5 or weighing under 20 kg should always use the Gravity® Blanket under supervision. When children use the blanket by themselves, they should always be able to remove the blanket easily.
Patients with advanced type 2 diabetes should not use a Gravity® Blanket because their circulation is weaker. Under no circumstances should patients that suffer from diabetic foot syndrome use the Gravity® Blanket.
Persons with kidney problems (especially those undergoing dialysis) should talk with their doctor before using a Gravity® Blanket.
You should always be able to remove the blanket yourself.
