Weighted Compression Vest

Rating: 5

My son has some sensory integration issues that we continue to worth on with his OT. It was suggested that we try a compression vest for him before he starts pre-school in the fall. I had to look around for one small enough for him as he is a petite 2 year old. We've had it now for a full week, and I have tried to wrestle him into it for at least an hour each day. First day he ripped it off and tore the shirt underneath so that, I started removing the shirt first before I put it on him. The vest adjusts at the sides and shoulders with velcro tabs meaning he was able to reach up and pull at the tabs. He does seem calmer after he's had it on for a while, so that, he can focus on tabletop activities like coloring, playdoh, shape sorting etc. Vest comes with 2 lbs of weights: (1/2lb + 1/2lb in the front inside pockets (4) 1/4lb weights in the back meaning that they are hidden inside so that he can't remove them himself. Just be careful not to let a child get over heated in this when outside as it is heavy, dark colored, stretchy material.

I have been looking for a weighted or compression vest for my autistic 4 year old son, and this one is the best of both worlds! It is made well and you can add or take away the weights and it is just the right weight for my child. I was able to find the correct fitting with the sizing chart and when it arrived I tried it on my son and it fit perfectly! I will be using this in intervals when he is in therapy or at home playing. Great quality.

We purchased the weighted compression vest for our son to help him focus on activities that require greater attention. He tolerates wearing the vest for 15-20 minutes and remains calm and focused for almost an hour after wearing it. The quality of the material is great and very durable for an active 2 year old.
