Autism • ADHD/ADD • SID/SPD
The Sensory Maxi Hug is a garment made of Lycra® and Orthowrap™. The Sensory Maxi 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 Maxi Hug was designed and created.
The Sensory Maxi Hug can be used as a treatment for sensory seeking individuals, with conditions such as: Autism, ADHD/ADD & SID/SPD
How should the Sensory Maxi Hug be used?
The Sensory Maxi 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 hips. Measurements should reflect a snug fit.
Maxi 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
