Weighted Compression Vest

Weighted deep pressure vest is made to calm and provide steady proprioceptive input. The combined pressure and weight functions as a reassuring deep hug.

The stretchy neoprene provides soothing proprioceptive input and compression around the body, helping to calm and promote self regulation.    The weight provides additional sensory input for those who need it.   This vest is a good middle ground coming somewhere between our weighted jacket and deep pressure vest.   It's lighter than the weighted jackets and does not give as much compression as the deep pressure vest, but falls nicely in between with a combination of the weighted and deep pressure.

  • Provides proprioceptive feedback to help focus and self-regulate
  • Hug-like compression encourages calm and feeling of security
  • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
  • Age 18 months - Adult

We recommend that you consult with your Occupational Therapist to devise a schedule for use of the weighted jacket. Check the jacket and weights on a regular basis for signs of wear & tear. •
