Our Sensory Hugs Deep Pressure Sensory Vest – Designed to calm children with autism, ADD, SID and ADHD with an emphasis on durability and comfort. This poncho style vest is designed to be pulled snug to the clients’ body, providing proprioceptive deep pressure sensory feedback, stability and skills. It is believed that they might be equally if not more helpful to some clients than the weighted vests, because the pressure is evenly provided over the entire trunk.
Deep pressure provides distributed propioceptive feedback across entire trunk and shoulders, which can provide a calming effect. Deep pressure is often used to assist the child to self-calm and relax so that sensory stimulus can be processed
Deep pressure sensory vests have full Velcro adjustment on both shoulders and across the back to allow for a proper fit in the both the length, chest and torso
Airprene material has perforations/holes throughout the rubberized layer of fabric, allowing them to “breath” eliminating or reducing the problem of overheating
Children who are easily distracted, hyperactive and lacking in concentration respond positively to the “hugging” sensation a vest provides
