"It is a lifesaver for my son who is a sensory seeker with ASD. The swing provides him comfort and calms him down, when necessary. Wish I purchased this a year ago."

VESTIBULAR INPUT & DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
Sensory swings provide vestibular input. Vestibular input is the sensation of any change in position, direction, or movement of the head. It gives our bodies information about whether we are moving with or against gravity, fast or slow, moving or still, and what direction we're headed. If you'd like to learn more about sensory swings and the science behind them, we wrote a guide to it here.
Sensory swings also provide Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body that can give a feeling of calm, relaxation, and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote an article on it here.

Hardware that comes with it is first class. Has been working well so far. Swing material seems sturdy and well made.
My 9 year old son loves it so much!! He is a pretty big kid, and he swings pretty energetically all day, and it is secure, safe and so much fun! It is just what he needs to get in his snuggle sensory diet and expend his extra energy!
We ordered a compression sensory swing for our 3 1/2 yr old. The swing is wonderful!! First of all we ordered from Harkla because they make products specifically for kids with special needs. I was impressed with the thorough explanations of products, the satisfaction guarantee and the compassion they put into their products. The swing arrived quickly and was easy to install. (Just make sure the swing has plenty of room for your little one to move around, swing, spin and lay down if need be) Our little guy has "signs" of SPD, autism, adhd. He has a weak core because he's so petite so we weren't sure if he would enjoy this particular swing or not. But we knew this compression swing would give him the security and sensory input that he desperately needs. It took a few days for him to get used to it but now he loves it! He likes to sit in it mostly and swing around or spin. We just purchased the swivel device so he can spin around as much as he likes. This swing gives just the right amount of pressure like a hug so it feels secure but not overwhelming. It's soft and stretchy so your child can move around with ease. It helps with meltdowns and gives a "grounding" feeling to refocus your child. It is very helpful and just what we needed to help our little guy regulate his emotions and distract him during this isolation time. If you're feeling hesitant like I was, give it a try and if it doesn't work the team at Harkla will refund you and pay for shipping. That's what sealed the deal for me. Thank you Harkla for being so kind and understanding.
Bought this for my 4 year old’s birthday and it does not disappoint! It’s snowy and cold out and we’re strict on social distancing so little man needs ways to safely get his sillies out and this thing works! He played on it for almost an hour and said he wanted to sleep in it as I dragged him to bed. Installation was a breeze for someone handy enough to find the stud. Love that this comes with everything needed to hang and properly adjust the height. He’s going to love this thing for many years to come.
It’s a nice product. Very soft
