An RCT that assesses the efficacy of weighted blankets on anxiety for patients with severe anorexia nervosa (AN) and avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID) in an inpatient medical setting. The results demonstrate clinical significance, advancing the field of OT as it supports the use of a sensory intervention to positively impact psychological and emotional states of a patient population with limited evidence to support best practices.
