Deep Pressure Compression Vest

Deep Pressure Vests for autism applies compression and deep pressure to the wearer, offering proprioceptive feedback to the body and shoulders.

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.
