DEEP TOUCH PRESSURE
The science behind weighted compression vests 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 weighted compression vests and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.
1% OF ALL SALES GO TO THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON AUTISM CENTER
At Harkla, our goal is to help those with special needs live happy and healthy lives. To continue this mission, we donate 1% of every sale to the University of Washington Autism Center. This money gets split between providing families in the Seattle area access to therapy they can't afford, funding cutting edge autism research, and our annual scholarship to the University of Washington Autism Center's APEX Summer Camp.

We are new to this platform and learning about sensory input. I find when my son yells a lot I ask him if he wants to put the vest on and he always says yes! It settles him.
I am an Occupational Therapist and this was my first time using a Harkla weighted vest. I have used other weighted vest and this by far is my favorite. The material is heavy duty and durable. The vest allow room to grow. The vest was as described and definitely helps with calming my kids with sensory challenges!
I purchased one of these blankets for a student with autism at my childcare center that had problems resting at naptime. It worked like magic! Since then I have purchased about eight more . The children love them and rest so much better. They are very high-quality and wash very nicely.
My 3 year old son was renting a weighted vest from his Occupational Therapist and when his services were ending we had to give it back to them, so I ordered him a new one for us to continue to use. It is of the same exact quality as what he was using for OT. I also emailed customer service and asked for a receipt to submit to my HSA for reimbursement, and they did it quickly and sent follow up emails to make sure the receipt was exactly what I needed.
My 3 year old with sensory processing has love this it help him relaxed and control his body
