It really works when you put it on.
The product is good. Easy to use.
How ever! We have the problem, in school, that he doesn't want to wear it. He says: It makes him different then the others when he has it on. And he doesn't want that. (Not that he doesn't already! :-( )
We allowed him to wear something over it. But he then gets "hot". We would like to see him be "happy" to wear it more often at school.
I am so happy with this product. My son is sensory seeking and also has a weeks worth if energy for each day 😄♥️ We are in the process of getting him checked out by a pediatrician but we have a therapist to help with behavior for now and some professionals in disabilities and special needs (with my consent) is going to incorporate a weighted vest into his school routine. I wanted to try one at home, after lots of research and reviews I bought the Harkla weighted compression vest! Best purchase I’ve ever made for my son! Of course he often protests putting it in but once it’s in he takes a few deep breaths almost as if he is relieved. The vest satisfies some of his needs since he is constantly touching grabbing pulling throwing squeezing etc. he is still himself! But my husband and I have noticed the vest helps him focus on one activity at a time as well as for some reason keeps him from jumping on us! He just doesn’t jump on us while he’s wearing it...as you could imagine it’s a huge relief to everyone! (Mom, dad, brother, sister) my son said “I like it, it feels good” when I asked him how he liked his new vest. Harkla, thank you for the amazing quality and performance vest! I’m so thankful for this product and what you all do!
We waited a good few weeks for our compression vests but Harkla were good at responding to emails regarding the status of my order. I measured my son and worked out a large would be best for him and best for us financially(we wouldn’t have to buy another in 6 months) unfortunately the vests are massive so so big but we manage to get it round him and he tolerates it. My son is diagnosed with severe autism, adhd, he has sensory issues too. He enjoys deep compression it helps him to calm and come back down to earth a bit. This vest is very very good I am glad I bought it and waited for it.
I actually ordered 8 vest & mailed out 7 to random parents of autistic children as a birthday present to myself. The 8th vest I kept for my autistic grandson who really is much calmer while wearing it in school. I was so impressed I wanted to share it with others who might not have the means to pay for it . I will most likely order a dozen for Christmas & randomly pick 12 more kids in need of help.. bless the inventor of this product.
