Proven Pressure: Jobskin's SDO Sensory Hug

Article - Jun 2021 Sensory Maxi HugIntroducing the Sensory Mini Hug and the Sensory Maxi Hug

Sensory Mini Hug Bulldog Ghost ImageLROver many years there has been extensive clinical studies and clinical evidence that has shown the improvement in the daily function of children and adults with sensory-seeking behaviours from the application of pressure therapy. Clinical evidence has demonstrated that deep pressure can reduce overactivity and abnormal behaviour patterns in individuals with sensory processing difficulties. However, providing consistent and continuous deep pressure is challenging and impractical, therefore, the innovative Sensory Hug was designed and created. 

The Sensory Hug can be used as a treatment for sensory-seeking behaviours such as AutismADHD/ADD and SID/SPD. The Sensory Hug provides sensory and proprioceptive feedback through dynamic compression to improve an individual’s quality of life by helping to:

• Increase attentiveness and concentration

• Increase body awareness and stability

• Manage sensory seeking behaviours

• Improve effective daily functioning

• Calm and comfort the wearer

• Reduce stress and anxiety

• Improve coping ability

   • Improve restlessness
