Stylish, Comforting and Calming Vest From Fun and Function.
Need to improve focus during test taking, working at a desk or doing homework? This Fun and Function Blue Weighted Vest provides proprioceptive input, helping children to focus at school and stay calm in stressful, sensory overloaded situations. Giving a steady sensory input and calming benefits for a sensory diet, the compression and weight of the vest can act as a filter to help engage the mind toward more important matters. Furthermore, kids enjoy the stylish, low-profile design so they don’t stand out from their peers.
Calming Benefits of Weight and Compression.
Discover an effective physical therapy treatment for children with ADHD, sensory processing disorder or autism. This weighted vest provides deep therapeutic compression at the joints and proprioception for comforting, calming and improving focus. It snaps right over other clothes and looks stylish so kids won’t feel like they look different from other children. Weights should be gradually adjusted, very carefully, for each child’s needs. The standard weight to use is 5% of total body weight, and the total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.
Smooth Material Is Ideal for Sensory Defensive Kids.
Comfortable and stylish, this vest is made from a soft blend of cotton and polyester. It’s available in small, medium and large sizes, and comes with two .5-pound weights and four .25-pound weights, for a total weight of 2 pounds. Weights are safely positioned in pockets inside the vest and can be added or removed to best meet your child’s needs. Hook and loop closures on the sides, along with snaps down the front, make it easy to put on, remove and size to the child’s body. This vest can also be machine washed in cold water for easy care.
Believing That All Kids Need to Have Fun ... and Just Be Kids, Fun and Function Is Dedicated to Helping All Children Succeed!
Fun and Function was born out of a desire for change. That frustration was channeled and turned it into a passion for creating the best sensory toys and tools on the planet to improve the lives of kids with special needs. We truly care about your children and their needs. As part of our commitment to earn and maintain your trust, each product is thoughtfully and carefully designed with regard to your children’s safety and physical well-being.
Aviva Weiss is the co-founder and CEO of Fun and Function – the award-winning company dedicated to realizing each child's fullest potential. Frustrated with the lack of kid-friendly sensory tools that would fit their family’s needs, Aviva and her husband Haskel decided to create their own to help every family. They work with a team of therapists, educators and artists to design the company's innovative toys, games, clothing and therapy equipment to build skills and self-esteem for children of every ability. Each product is kid-friendly, affordable – and most importantly – makes a real developmental and therapeutic difference in the lives of children.
Product safety is our priority at Fun and Function. We work with factories we have personally visited, meet with their owners &, in many cases, have met their family and children. We value each supplier & work closely to insure best business standards while teaching them about the children we serve.
We are committed to the highest standards in design and functionality of each product and research each item with care and thoughtfulness each step of the way.
