Our Weighted Vests have been stylishly re-designed...and we really love them! Designed by an occupational therapist who wanted high quality, durability and an attractive, non-therapeutic look with an added chewy and fidget; made of denim with gold topstitching to look like blue jeans. Very comfortable!
Some of the features include:
Inside of the vest is lined with a light weight cotton fabric containing 5 pockets where weights can be added. Velcro at the inside top of each pocket prevents the weight from shifting around.
Weights are not visible from the outside.
Front of the vest has a large nylon zipper closure for fastening ease.
Zipper has a large water resistant neoprene pull that can double as a "chewy"
Front flap on the right lower side of the vest has a functioning oversize button for practicing buttoning or used as a fidget
Front flap has on the underside a soft, plush velour fabric for tactile input/fidgeting.
The stylish look is an attractive match to clothing typically worn to school.
No tags (one tear away tag) to limit sensory sensitivity increasing calmness and focus.
Each vest includes 2, 1/2 pound weights. More weights can be added if desired (1/2 pound).
Consult with your therapist for the weight that is best for your child.
