“This vest is like a great big hug and helps to calm down the overactive sensory system. It helps with sensory stimulus, as well as attention span.”
A Popular Vest and Favorite Vest
Designed occupational therapist Aviva ( Founder of Funand Function, USA) who couldn’t find a weighted compression vest for kids, so she designed her own. This vest was the first Fun and Function product and it’s still one of their top sellers. Kids, parents, teachers and therapists love this vest because it’s comfy, easy to use and and helps kids quickly calm and focus.
The vest is like a big wearable hug that provides steady proprioceptive input (body awareness) with deep pressure and balanced weight. The effect is so gentle, calming and reassuring, kids even ask to wear it.

Weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person’s needs. (5% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.)
Remove weights before washing.
