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 blankets and the science behind the, 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.

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
Hands down best vest, helps with my Daughter's Sensory Processing Disorder, her Anxiety, Autism, and we are starting to use it for better sleep.
Definitely saw more concentration and a much calmer little boy. My son has autism. He's just made 3yrs old. He's tall for his age but skinny. This vest fit perfectly.
Product is very well made. We use it for our little (2.5yrs old) one with ASD, SPD, and GDD. He wears it at school or anywhere there is too much stimulation and it calms him like deep pressure or bear hugs. I wish there was an option to add more weight, as his occupational therapist feels that he could benefit from it being a bit heavier, but I DO like that it comes with the option for parents to add or take away the weights that it comes with to customize the weight up to the limit.
