Snug Vest™

Promoted Skills

Product Description

Snug Vest is a therapeutic product for individuals that benefit from sensory feedback and stimulation to focus and attend or calm and soothe. Snug Vest inflates to provide adjustable and evenly-distributed pressure to the torso for a comforting hug-like squeeze without pressure placed on the stomach or chest. The product promotes independence as the child can self-inflate their vest in a discrete way to get the exact amount of safe pressure they need. The Snug Vest is stylish and unsuspected making it inclusive for kids to wear regularly!
