Discover an extremely effective and discreet way to calm children and help them to better focus for learning. The kids’ peace graphic weighted compression vest uses deep pressure and balanced weight to provide a deep “hug,” and it does so in cool fashion. Children will enjoy wearing this stylish vest, and it can be used either with or without the included weights for effective sensory input. It’s made from comfortable neoprene for superior stretch and compression. Mesh sides improve airflow for even greater comfort.
Use this children’s weighted vest for proprioceptive feedback (body awareness), calming, deep pressure and focus. It’s great for kids that are hyperactive, on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder. The compression vest is comfortable, easy to use and will quickly calm for focus.
Important: Weighted vests should not be used by children without adult supervision. Ask your occupational therapist for additional information and wear times for the best results. Carefully and gradually adjust weights for each individual’s needs. The standard is 5 percent of total body weight, and the total should never go above 10 to 15 percent of the person’s total body weight.
