Weighted Sensory Therapeutic Vests

Do you have a special friend that has a hard time settling down in class?
Perhaps they've struggled trying to relax at story time
or are too overactive to focus on school work?

  These are just a few of the examples where a Weighted Sensory Vest would be very helpful for a child.
Deep pressure therapy is a fantastic therapeutic treatment commonly recommended by Physical therapists and Occupational therapists. When wearing a weighted vest, the evenly distributed weight is proving deep pressure stimulation to the central nervous system. By doing this, the central nervous system feels relaxed and calm with Sensory Integration. Children who are normally hyperactive, easily distracted, have high levels of anxiety, and unable to relax greatly benefit from this technique.

 Sensory products play an important role in the daily lives of children with special needs.
Helping improve the quality of live, and making things easier for them and their families. High end merchandise companies see the market for these, know families need them and charge high prices. We noticed this, and expanded our company to provide Vests and other weighted items at affordable prices for budgets of all sizes! The best thing is, all of our products are completely custom!

 We want them to feel confident and proud in their vest. Not out of place or embarrassed because they are wearing one. How to we achieve this? It's really quite simple actually.

 Weighted Wishes lets the client design it! Yes you read it correctly, we do not design any of our weighted products. We may create them, but the designing is up to the child or adult who will be wearing it. Our staff work with the child/ client to come up with something unique, that they would LOVE to wear. Nobody wants to wear anything boring, ugly or simply something they don't like. Would you wear an ugly shirt that someone tossed you, told you to wear and expect you to be happy? Of course not, so why should a child or someone in need?

Here is an example of what our vests look like. Two front pockets, that are functional and great for putting small items in. Such as Kleenex or a toy. Soft velcro closure, for extra comfort compared to buttons. Inside are 8 pockets, which hold the removable rice weight packages.

What are they made of? All of our products are made of the highest quality materials and workmanship. We prefer to use Cotton & Flannel materials as these are the strongest and last the longest.

What do you fill the vests with and are they removable for washing? Our weights are small packages of rice. Why rice? We feel that this is the safest material to use as weight. Most companies use drapery weights, aquarium rocks or palmer clay.
We feel that this is very unsafe especially for children in case of a fall. We don't want to harm children, so we use rice. This provides comfort if they fall, and is also non-tonic- for those curious children who have a tendency to eat things.

Step #1: Choose the size!

The way we do our sizing is very simple, our vests are made to be similar to the size of a basic t-shirt. With a comfortable slightly loose fit, our vets allow for a shirt to be worn underneath. We simply ask that you take a look at the size shirt they are currently wearing. How does it fit? If it fits comfortably, then that is the size Vest you should order. Does the shirt fit snug? Then its suggested to order the next size up.

**Vest's are filled with a Maximum of 5% of the users total body weight**

Step #2: Weigh them!

In order for the vest to provide the proper stimulation to the body, and work effectively, the vest is filled with a maximum of 5% of the total body weight. So before you order, please weigh your child, do not guesstimate as this may harm the child if too much weight is put into the vest.

Step #3: Get creative, design the vest!

Think about how you want the vest to look. If you can, have a sit down chat with your child or friend to talk about what colours or things that they like. As you have read above, this is extremely important. We want to encourage them to wear the vest.

 "Thank you SO much for your wonderful vests. Since adding these two weighted vests to my Special Education classroom, we have had so much success.
I have students who have completely turned around. One student used to have tantrums and throw things around the room because she would get so out of control during the school day.
Since implementing the weighted vest into her "sensory diet" - we have had nothing but good days! The child has completely changed her ways.

I attribute 100% of our success to the weighted vest and the calming feeling it provides for her. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!" --A Special Education Teacher from Texas
