NOTE: This unique design allows increased adjustments in size due to the material and Velcro combination.
The measurements stated below are the widest possible dimensions, and are given to determine the best size for each client, however for smaller clients, a greater decrease in size is obtained by increasing the side and shoulder closures. Our deep pressure vests are made with a latex free, breathable material, that is comfortable, highly durable and completely washable, however because the fabric is rubberized, the items must be hung to dry.
Before washing, secure all Velcro closures to prevent snagging and debris from collecting within the Velcro. Our deep pressure vests are sized based on the measurements listed below and the design of the product allows a great deal of flexibility in size adjustments. To properly size your vest, you will need to measure:. The concept of the weighted vest or deep pressure vest is based on the SI therapy technique of deep pressure. Children who are easily distracted, hyperactive and lacking in concentration respond positively to the additional weight or pressure a vest provides.
What is Sensory Integration SI? Sensory Integration SI is a brain process that occurs in all of us. It allows us, often without conscious thought, to take information through our senses, organize it and make a plan to produce a meaningful response to interact with our environment with ease and comfort. Our senses can be those that we know and those that are hidden. The senses that are the most obvious are those of sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell.
The hidden senses are those of movement vestibular or inner ear and of body position sense proprioception. The hidden senses are regulators of our nervous system and help build the foundation for purposeful movement. For most children, sensory integration develops through ordinary childhood activities. Children must be able to organize sensory information to function in daily activities, in the classroom, on the playground and in relationships.
Simply put, a Sensory Processing Disorder or Dysfunction of Sensory Integration is the inability to process information received through our senses. A child with a dysfunction of sensory integration cannot respond to sensory information and use it to behave in a meaningful way. Some children are hypersensitive or hyposensitive to sensory information.
Either way impairs learning and creates a threatening situation for the child causing increased anxiety and a decreased ability to interpret and respond appropriately to stimuli.

There are no clear rules on how long a weighted vest can be worn. If the vest is used to calm an upset child, then it may be removed when the child has calmed down. The design is also important, as this will encourage a child to wear the vest. Other makers of weighted vests make the product look like regular vests, like a jacket, to avoid social stigma.
The use and benefits of weighted vests for children are the same for adults. Adults with autism may wear weighted vests to counter anxiety , stress, or impulsive behavior. There are two types of weighted vests that are currently marketed to people with autism: Compression vests and Deep Pressure Vests. While both vests are built differently, they still provide deep pressure that is needed to help the wearer feel calm, focus, or reduce stereotypical behavior.
Parents and caregivers can purchase weighted vests from different online sellers like Fun and Function , and National Autism Resources or they can create their own DIY vests. It may be that your child wants to regulate the amount of pressure that the vest applies.
A squease inflatable vest allows your child to use an air pump to inflate or deflate the vest to get the correct amount of pressure. Vests are worn with the help of teachers overseen by therapists to record its effects and ensure safety and comfort for the child. Wearing weighted vests and other weighted objects like weighted blankets is part of a practice called sensory integration therapy. This approach aims to help children who have difficulty processing multiple sensory inputs at the same time.
A child who is unable to process various sensory inputs properly may resort to stereotypical behaviors like repeated gestures stimming or become clumsy, unresponsive, or overly upset. Stereotypical behaviors are repetitive body movements or moving of objects. This behavior is often seen in people with autism and other developmental disabilities. Stereotypy is more common in autism and can be felt in all senses.
Some examples would be hand flapping, body rocking, repeating vocal sounds, smelling objects, etc. Wearing weighted vests have been proven to lessen stereotypical behavior in children with autism, although it is not a guarantee that it will work for all children with autism. A kind of stereotypical behavior in children with autism is stimming , also known as self-stimulation.
It is one way for a child with autism to deal with under-stimulation or over-stimulation. In a classroom setting, stimming might be a hindrance for the child to complete a desktop activity. For this reason, a school therapist can apply sensory integration techniques such as having the child wear a weighted vest in the aim of lessening the stims and increasing focus. Children with autism are prone to emotional episodes, tantrums, and meltdowns , and this can be a distraction if it happens inside a classroom.
Therapists and caregivers claim that weighted vests can help calm a distressed child. While weighted vests appear to be common practice with therapists in a school setting, other organizations are wary about its use. Additionally, they want to make parents and caregivers aware of the dangers it might pose to children with other health issues.
With the exception of a few institutions, most experts and therapists are optimistic that weighted vests can truly benefit children who struggle with autistic traits. There is substantial evidence that weighted vests can affect behavior with its deep pressure, as seen in real-life scenarios and testimonies. It is a step closer to finding a simple solution to a complicated problem.
As more research and studies are done, it is expected that sensory integration techniques will prove to be a valid method for meeting the challenges faced by children with autism in their daily lives.

And also to that nasty article that made me aware of its existence hahaha hope this review helps someone try it and change their life so much as it did ours.
My son was diagnosed with a sensory processing disorder and a speech delay, and would get really excited and it was almost impossible to calm him down. His therapist had him try a weighted vest that did absolutely nothing for him and while she did give us techniques to help, it was very overwhelming at times.
Then we tried compression clothing and it worked a little bit nothing really noticeable. She then brought this vest but in a bigger size and the change was amazing. Tasks that normally would be challenging for him were now manageable. He could focus on us and what we were asking him. He could slow down and speak clearly and put sentences together that he never could before.
So we bought him one in his size for home and school use. With weekly therapy, using the vest for those times he gets overstimulated, and using the techniques his therapist helped us with, he is doing SO much better. He is using the vest less now because he is starting to recognize when he gets overstimulated and asks for the vest himself when he feels he is getting to that point.
I would definitely recommend this. My 2 year old son was always falling over, ever since he learned to sit up. Once we started PT and OT, the therapists recommended a compression shirt to help with balance, anxiety, and to decrease sensory seeking. I couldn't find an affordable shirt in his size, but I found this vest, and ordered it.
He resisted it at first, and I think that's because maybe he likes feeling a little tipsy or out of control. After the first day and a half, he asked me to put it on. He wears it whenever he's not sleeping or in the car seat. He absolutely loves it! I love it, too. As soon as it's on, he can stand up, walk in straight line, go up and down stairs, and he doesn't fall down! At all! He can focus on one activity at a time, and is less anxious about trying a new sensation or texture.
He talks more I think that's because maybe he has more energy he can devote to talking since he's not using it all just to move his body , and is just generally happier. I was afraid at first that it would get in the way, and maybe hinder his movements.
This vest is completely unobtrusive, even though it's a little big for him. In fact, he can move his body better with it on, because he's aware of where his body is in space. I might even order a second one, just so one can be in the wash while he wears the other.
It does clean up pretty good, but he's 2, so it gets dirty pretty quickly. There are a few things about it that I don't like, but I'm still rating it as 5 stars because of just how amazing this vest is. First, it came with no instructions. I couldn't even find any videos online that showed how to put it on. How tight should it be? How long can he wear it? How long can he wear it with weights in?
What are the appropriate times to add the weights? Where should it land on his body? Our PT was able to answer those questions, but it would have been nice to have instructions. Second, the mesh is wearing out quickly. It stretched out so it's not as tight and is getting fuzzy because of the Velcro always sticking to it. The Velcro tabs in the back are starting to curl, they don't want to lay flat against his back anymore. The Velcro on the shoulder tabs is pulling away from the fabric, because the stitching is so far in from the edge.
There are threads falling out all over the place, like the stitches just weren't secure. For example, the name tag on the back neck area came undone on one side about 2 weeks after getting it, and now the other side is hanging by a thread. Another thing that bugs me is that I have to take it off to put him in the car seat. This isn't a feature that can be improved, it's just life.
If it were a compression shirt, that would work, but anything that adds bulk to his regular clothing can't be worn in a car seat. He loves the vest so much that we put it on just to walk Big Brother into school and back out to the car mabye 5 minutes. The hassle of putting it on and taking it off is worth it just so that he can walk without falling down.
The change in my son when he wears the vest is so surprising, that I became concerned. I was afraid that maybe I was changing him into someone else, forcefully. He was so calm and focused, was I doing this for my benefit or for his? Was I being mean? I talked to our OT about my concerns, and she told me that having him wear the vest was for HIS benefit. I wasn't being mean, and it's a great solution because it is drug-free. The compression from the vest gives him what he needs--sensory input, spatial awareness, and comfort.
Giving him what he needs means that he won't be seeking sensory input as much always moving his body , and he can finally relax. I wasn't changing him into a different person, I was allowing him to be himself, without all the sensory distractions he usually has to deal with. The fact that he asks me to put it on him confirms it for me: he loves it, so I feel good about him wearing it. I've only used the weights twice, and they do make a difference.
He was having a hard time calming down, so I took off the vest, put the weights in it and put it back on him, then tried our usual calm-down techniques low lights, etc. Also, I have to give this vest 5 stars because it has made meltdown-free trips to the grocery store possible. I thought that would take a miracle, but all it took was the vest. He spent all day to in a hospital room while his big brother had a procedure, and did great!
He wasn't constantly seeking sensory input, so he had a great time with regular boredome busters like coloring and didn't have any tantrums. Again, that wouldn't have been possible without his vest. Giving our son what he needs to feel calm, secure, and confident by giving him this vest was the best thing we could have done.
