Imagine one, big, wearable hug. Here it is-the weighted compression vest that encourages the big trifecta of calm, focus, and concentration for learning. And it looks weigh-cool, too. There’s a soft neoprene shell for comfort (think deep-sea divers), air-conditioned mesh sides and pockets to place adjustable weights. For kids and adults alike, the deep pressure and balanced weight are gentle, calming and reassuring. FOR: Steady proprioceptive input (body awareness) for kids and adults on the autism spectrum, with sensory processing disorders, or hyperactivity. WHY: It works. And it’s lightening-fast to put on, take off and adjust. Easy-on, hook and loop closures on sides and shoulders make size adjustment a snap. You place weights in the safe, closed pockets-add, remove and adjust as you’d like. Most sizes include two 1/2 lb. weights and four 1/4 lb. weights for a total of 2 lbs. XX-Small includes four 1/4 lb. weights for a total of 1 lb. Remove weights before washing. Machine wash cold, line dry. Colors: blue and red SAFETY FIRST: Ask your occupational therapist about weights and wear times for best results. Supervise wear, please. You might WANT: Additional Weights sold separately
