Pressure Vest

The primary function of the Pressure Vest is to apply deep pressure evenly across the body. The Pressure Vest’s pressure is known to help reduce response to stimuli. By enhancing proprioceptive feedback, pressure vests promote self-calming, balance, and increased body awareness. Children with proprioceptive and tactile integration dysfunction benefit from the sensory feedback provided by the vest because it provides the input their bodies crave. Most children enjoy wearing them because they are comfortable.

Many children with sensory processing difficulties who use these vests show dramatic improvement in their ability to sit still and concentrate on tasks. These vests can be used before or during gross motor, heavy work, tabletop, classroom, or at-home activities when their bodies need that extra input in order to perform tasks with sustained concentration.

The Pressure Vest has two sides and two shoulder Velcro closures. It is made from a breathable, latex-free material which also helps the wearer maintain a comfortable body temperature.

The benefits of these vests include:

Increases body awareness
Improves balance and coordination
Increases focus and concentration
Enhances comprehension and learning
Dramatically reduces hyperactivity
Maximizes benefits of therapy sessions
Increases therapy carryover
