Autism • ADHD/ADD • SID/SPD
The Sensory Hug® is a garment made of Lycra® and Orthowrap™. The Sensory Hug® provides sensory and proprioceptive feedback through dynamic compression. 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 Sensory Hug® was designed and created.
The Sensory Hug® can be used as a treatment for sensory seeking individuals, with conditions such as: Autism, ADHD/ADD & SID/SPD
How should the Sensory Hug® be used?
The Sensory Hug® can be worn under or over everyday clothes, whilst providing support and allowing full movement. It can be worn to help with routine or specific activities according to the needs of the wearer.
What size should I order?
Measure around the chest level with the axilla (armpits). Measurements should reflect a snug fit.
Mini hugs include 3 zip strips 3cm, 5cm and 7cm to extend your garment. Remove as necessary to tighten or add to loosen the garment in order to provide the correct pressure.
Hand wash or machine washable at 40oC
Dry garment flat (do not tumble dry)
