FAQS

The Harkla Hug combines a sensory input tool with the fun of a toy!

Inflate the pea pod chair and watch your child explore a new comfort spot in your home or kids sensory room. Now made with flocked vinyl, this durable peapod sensory chair is a perfect addition.

The inflatable peapod for autism applies much-needed pressure to sensitive areas of the body helping your child feel grounded and in control. This cozy canoe is perfect for autism. It stirs a sense of adventure while the compression provides a calming comfort where your child can feel secure. Use this sensory processing disorder tool to add comfort and joy in your child’s life.

The Harkla Hug provides deep touch pressure (DTP) in the form of firm tactile sensory input or proprioceptive input to the whole body. When administered to the whole body, deep touch pressure therapy (DTP) has a calming, organizing effect on children and adults alike.

DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE

The science behind the Harkla Hug is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.

DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about deep touch pressure, we wrote an article on it here.

Mixed rmotions

It’s fantastic from a sensory perspective. My son would stay in there all day if he could. Unfortunately, it loses air more quickly than we’d like. We have to refill it every other day.
