Deep Pressure Vest
Deep Pressure Vest
Deep Pressure Vest - 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. These vests are now designed with “Airprene”. This new material has perforations/holes throughout the rubberized layer of fabric, allowing them to “breath” eliminating or reducing the problem of overheating. It should be noted that even though Airprene allows the skin to breathe, it is still recommended that you periodically check for over-heating or skin irritation. The vest is designed to be pulled snug to the clients’ body, providing proprioceptive deep pressure feedback, stability and skills, evenly over the chest and waist. A new neck design also gives added support along the chest area. The concept of the deep pressure sensory vest is based on the sensory integration therapy technique of deep pressure. Deep pressure is often used to assist the child to self-calm and relax so that sensory stimulus can be processed. The use of a weighted vest provides the child with unconscious information from the muscles and joints. Children who are easily distracted, hyperactive and lacking in concentration respond positively to the “hugging” sensation a vest provides. Therapists have found that adding additional weights to the torso or shoulders of the vest may also assist with reflex maturity, body position awareness and coordination, balance, eye/hand coordination, spatial perception and hearing and speaking skills. Because of these anecdotal outcomes, many therapists working with children are recommending the use of a weighted vest. .
