Deep pressure vest for autism applies compression and deep
pressure to the wearer, offering proprioceptive feedback to the body and
No weight is used - instead a deep pressure is applied to
the body by the tight wrapping of the vest around the body.
Challenging and sensory seeking behaviours are often reduced
with the application of deep pressure.
Anxiety and distress can be reduced by lowering the heart
rate, calming breathing, in turn promoting a feeling of security.
Some autistic children and adults enjoy tight clothing or
wrapping themselves up in sheets or a gym mat to give them the pressure they
crave - the compression vest works on the same principle and benefits those
with tactile and proprioceptive sensory problems.
Promotes a feeling of calmness and security
