Products That Hug And Squeeze Help Calm, Normalize And Integrate Sensory Information

An infant's sensory system is immature and calms to the deep, even and firm pressure of swaddling. Similarly, an individual's system that is under significant stress or is immature in the way it is processing sensory input will also respond significantly to these deep pressure receptors. This technique is often used successfully with individuals that are easily distracted, hyperactive or lacking concentration. These individuals respond positively to the additional weight some products provide. Depending on individual preference, some people prefer "tightness" such as bike shorts and LYCRA�-based wraps. Others prefer the "heaviness" of beanbag chairs, backpacks filled to the brim and weighted products. Some individuals prefer both. Pay attention to what the individual is seeking in the natural environment.
