Not another ordinary weighted vest
Children with autism and ADHD may get anxiety relief from a new weighted vest developed by NYKNYC. This NYKNYC
Autistic Weighted Vest for autistic children is unlike any other weighted vests for autistic children. It does not look like a medical device and yet it delivers desired benefits because of its weight and close contact with the wearer.
Our NYKNYC Autistic Weighted Vest for autistic children looks like regular clothing so the children's peers never even have to know the children are wearing a weighted vest. The thin weights are inserted in outside pockets where the weights are hidden and pressed comfortably against the body of the wearer.
The NYKNYC AUTISTIC WEIGHTED VEST for autistic children is made from thin stretchable fabric and the price includes removable thin weights. The proper amount of weight for every child can be selected by inserting the desired amount of weights into the pockets. The weights are secured in pockets by VELCRO strips closing. There are 4 pockets in front and 4 pockets in back. The stretchable soft fabric cushions the weights against the body. Because our AUTISTIC WEIGHTED VEST for autisticchilden fits closely to the body, it delivers a “portable hug” called deep pressure touch stimulation (DPTS). For many kids this type of therapy product helps them stay calm and focused by stimulating their muscles and joints though deep pressure.
Many children with sensory processing disorders, autism, or ADHD show dramatic improvement in their ability to sit still and concentrate on tasks when wearing weighted vest, especially our weighted vest.
If you have an autistic child and want to travel, NYKNYC WEIGHTED VEST for autistic children is very effective in giving a feeling of security. The vest is tight to the chest, like a life jacket, and lightly weighted, as if there were arms around the child hugging this child.

Deep Pressure and Weighted Vest can be highly beneficial to children with autism, sensory integration disorder, ADHD and other neurological disorders. Based on the sensory integration technique of deep pressure providing the child with unconscious information from the muscles and the joints, the added weight or pressure may help the child calm down and better integrate sensory information. As a result, the child may become more organized, and improve in their ability to concentrate on play, learning or eating. Generally, children who are easily distracted, hyperactive and lacking in concentration respond positively to the additional weight the NYKNYC AUTISTI WEIGHTED VEST provides. Within minutes of wearing the NYKNYC AUTISTIC WEIGHTED VEST the child will feel more balanced, focused, and secure.
NYKNYC Autistic Weighted Vest can be used by children during classroom or at-home activities, when their bodies need that extra input in order to perform tasks with sustained concentration.
Eight clinical studies of the effectiveness and safety of existing weighted vests that deliver DPTS were conducted at Univ.of Mass Amherst
