- Does your child often suffer from too many stimuli?
- Is he or she often restless or very active?
- Does your child have problems concentrating in class or therapy?
The weighted vest is a tool for children or young adults who have difficulty processing stimuli. This can be due to autism, ADHD or sensory integration disorder. The weighted vest can be used during lessons, therapy or other moments when the user needs to sit quietly and concentrate. It can be used during lessons at school or in therapy.
The weighted vest helps stimulate the proprioceptive system. The deep stimulation of this system calms and relaxes the body and greatly improves concentration.
Our offer consists of two types of weighted vests:
- The weighted vest for daily use
- The specialised weighted vest
Weighted vests for daily use
There are pockets in the middle of the weighted vest where the weight bags are evenly distributed on the front and back. The weighted vest should be worn closed.
The weight of the weighted vest depends on the body weight. The weighted vest for daily use is designed for a standard load of 5% of the body weight. If the therapist has recommended a higher load, the specialised therapy weighted vest should be ordered.
The specialised therapy weighted vest
The therapeutic weighted vest has large pockets on the outside for inserting weight bags. Such a solution makes it possible to put a heavy load in the vest (more than 5% of the body weight) and simplifies a smooth weight adjustment.
The straps allow the waistcoat to be adjusted to the user's body. The weight bags are evenly distributed on the front and back of the weighted vest. A single bag weights 180 g. You can also order additional bags together with the weighted vest.
