Imagine one, big, wearable hug. Here it is–the weighted compression vest that encourages the big trifecta of calm, focus, and concentration for learning. And it looks weigh-cool, too! There’s a soft neoprene shell for comfort (think deep-sea divers), air-conditioned mesh sides and pockets to place adjustable weights. For kids and adults alike, the deep pressure and balanced weight are gentle, calming and reassuring. Easy-on, hook and loop closures on sides and shoulders make size adjustment a snap. You place weights in the safe, closed pockets–add, remove and adjust as you’d like.
*NOTE: Additional Weights sold separately. The xx-small and x-small vest can hold up to 4 lbs., the small vest can hold up to 5 lbs., the medium and large vest can hold up to 9 lbs., and XL vest can hold up to 12 lbs. However, weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person's needs. (5% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.) Ask your occupational therapist about weights and wear times for best results.
