The deep pressure provided by Weighted Jacket has a "calming and organising" effect on the body's proprioceptive system. The Weighted Jackets are made of a soft, durable "shell" fabric with a cotton lining containing 7 weight pockets
As a Charity, any profit made from every purchase goes back to helping families with disabled children.
The shell outer is stylish and easy to wash. The jacket has a fleece inner collar for comfort and two waist pockets.
Weighted Jackets are commonly recommended by Occupational Therapists for use in the classroom to increase attention span and reduce hyperactivity often seen in children with autism, ADHD, sensory and learning difficulties. Deep pressure provided by the jacket has a calming effect on the body's proprioceptive system.
Our weighted vest jackets come with a full set of weights that are placed strategically in the inner "pockets" - 2 on the shoulders and 5 around the torso.
Weights are sewn into reinforced pouches and are interchangeable for maximum safety, comfort and easy washing.
The shoulder pockets allow weight to be placed where it is really needed and most effective giving the effect of someone pressing down gently on the shoulders - which is both effective and comfortable for the wearer. The weights around the middle allow additional weight to be evenly distributed as required.
