It was the first day in a very long time that he really felt comfortable

“Our little son was always very busy and restless, and found it very difficult to concentrate. We found out after a lot of research that he has SPD (sensory processing disorder), which makes him easily overexcited.

When he is “full,” nothing else comes in, and he tries to get rid of that overflowing feeling by moving around a lot, as well as by seeking a lot of hugs. Moreover, we were regularly unable to reach him at all. Fortunately, our wonderful pediatric physical therapist advised us to give it a try with a pressure vest (he was also allowed to try one at her practice a few times and really liked it).

When the pressure vest was delivered, we immediately put it on him. The effect was almost immediate: he became completely calm, and you could see him relax!It was the first day in a very long time that he really felt at ease, and that he didn’t know what to do with himself because of overstimulation.

We are now a month along and the improvement appears to be permanent. When necessary, he wears his vest for about 20 minutes, and the effect continues to be felt for hours afterwards. His ability to concentrate is much better, he has much more self-confidence, and he is especially pleased himself that he no longer has to move his restlessness away all the time (though he remains a wonderfully active little fellow). He really feels comfortable with the deep pressure of the vest and is much better able to avoid overstimulation and, if it does happen, process it.

This cardigan comes highly recommended!”
