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.

the child will not wear it.
I have to say this vest is really wonderful. My five year old daughter has a genetic disorder she deals with ADHD, SPD and behavioral concerns just to name a few. She had a vest prior that was not weighted and she would fight me tooth and nail to wear it. However with this new vest and the added weight she asks me to wear it! The weight in the vest I feel helps to comfort and ground her. I notice the biggest difference with her when she is wearing the vest. She also has the weighted lap pet as well, she is not attached to any toy stuffed animal etc.. but this lap pet she will not leave the house without! I am very pleased with the products we have purchased so far!
Weighted Compression Vest
We've only used this during school work and only for 2 weeks. I haven't really noticed a definite change because sometimes my son can sit still and do his work with no issues. Other days he can't. He says he likes the vest and that it is comfy on him. Currently only using the 2 lbs that came with it. Wondering if I need to up the lbs for him?! I'm still pretty neutral at this point but I did decide to try this one because of the 100% refund if you're not satisfied. Gives me hope it will help him since the reviews were great and they seem to be confident it works! Can't go wrong with that right?!
Great quality, fast shipping, perfect sizing instructions, great price
