Compression/ Pressure vests provide constant, even deep pressure to children when their body is craving this important calming and organizing proprioceptive input. Pressure vests promote self-calming, balance, and increased body awareness by enhancing proprioceptive feedback. Children with proprioceptive and tactile integration dysfunction benefit from the sensory feedback they receive when wearing the vest, because it gives the child the input their body craves. Most children love to wear them, because it feels good.

Pressure vests can be used for calming to help the oversensitive child decrease hyper-responsiveness. The pressure is known to help reduce the response to stimuli. They may be effective for children who exhibit signs of excessive energy, appear restless most of the time, engage in risky jumping, climbing and/or crashing behaviors, have a hard time sitting still at home or at school, have difficulty concentrating on tasks, seem frequently disorganized, crave proprioceptive input, live for recess and frequently enjoy bear hugs and squishing activities.

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

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, table top, 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 side and two shoulder Velcro closures. It is made from a breathable, latex-free material which also helps the wearer maintain a comfortable body temperature.

Great for building kids upper body strength around the torso and chest area.  PLEASE DO THIS 1 SMALL WEIGHT AT A TIME. 

Compression vests can be worn either for a short or long time depending on the advice given by the child’s Therapist and the requirements of the child.  please monitor the child to make sure they do not over exert themselves
