Weighted Belts

Research and testing was carried out at a special school in Florida with the help of Occupational Therapists to determine the optimum belt weight. You should consult your healthcare professional for further guidance.

Please note that the Miracle and Sensory weighted belts are essentially the same product - the Miracle belt being for toddlers and children, the Sensory belt being for older children and adults.
