Frequently Asked Questions
Why are weighted vests part of a sensory diet?
The deep pressure helps with sensory integration. Both children and adults say they feel more grounded and secure with the ‘hug” of the weighted vest.
What’s the best time to wear a weighted vest?
Start by observing when there are challenges with specific tasks. Then try wearing the vest during activi- ties that require focus and attention. Often, it’s helpful to put the vest on right before and while doing home- work, working at a desk, taking a test, or eating a meal. Some people benefit from wearing the vest for extend- ed periods throughout the day.
How much weight is recommended?
Generally, the starting range is 5-10% of the person’s weight. The weight should be evenly distributed in the interior pockets or shoulders, depending on the vest style. Most importantly, observe and get feedback to assess whether more or less weight is needed.
