The OTvest - Because WHERE the weight is placed MATTERS!
The OTvest™ is a stylish, durable, denim weighted vest providing deep pressure therapy that calms, increases attention and focus, and helps reduce anxiety. The weight placement also provides trunk stability for those with balance and coordination difficulties and helps reduce tremors. The OTvest™ conceals a unique, highly effective patented weight insert constructed of flat, evenly distributed weights quilted into an extremely durable weight insert . Designed and Patented by an Occupational Therapist, the OTvest requires less weight than other weighted vests because of the patented design of efficient weight distribution, use of dense weight material, using physics effectively by pressing down upon the wearer, and deep pressure therapy applied directly upon the body of the wearer. The OTvest has been recommended by occupational therapists, physical therapists, physicians and other professionals for therapeutic use since 2002--with over 20,000 in use.

Look for the yellow and red "OTvest" label on the chest pocket to make sure you are getting the genuine OTvest. Others may look like the OTvest from the outside, but the OTvest weight placement is important. Only the OTvest has the patented weighted insert with the weight lying directly upon the body. This weight placement makes the difference!
