Keith Zivalich – Magic Weighted Blanket
According to the CDC, around 40 million adults in the US are diagnosed with anxiety every year. The Magic Weighted Blanket was invented by Keith Zivalich in 1997 as a way to help people manage their anxiety. The concept was inspired by his daughter placing a beanie baby on his shoulder. Zivalich utilized deep pressure stimulation therapy to create the blanket, which was designed to help people get better sleep and manage their stress. Though Zivalich put his idea into the world back in 97′, his blankets didn’t become popular until 2016. As an entrepreneur, Zivalich values the importance of passion and patience. He also believes that the success of his concepts can be attributed to his past.
