Have you struggled to help your child relax and get restful sleep? Start your journey to better sleep (and mood!) with a compression sheet.
The compression sheet offers deep touch pressure (like a hug!) which helps regulate the nervous system. This releases melatonin helping relax your child. The melatonin turns into serotonin leading to deeper, more restful sleep.
You'll love how your child curls up under the compression sheet as they relax and drift to sleep.
Children get messy (and sweaty!). That's why our sheet is an easy on/off the bed and designed to be machine washable. Simply slide the sensory sheet over the mattress like a sleeve.
The sheet fits snugly around two-thirds of the bed leaving plenty of room for both the head and feet to stick out accommodating those who prefer their feet not be compressed.
What if the compression sheet tears or breaks?

What is the science behind the compression sheet?
The science behind sensory compression sheet 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 and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.
We think children with special needs should have every opportunity to live happy and healthy lives. That's why Harkla is dedicated to providing families with the best products and resources for raising a special needs child. Read more of our story here.
