SPD or sensory processing disorder

Sensory processing disorder/sensory modulation difficulties or sensory integration difficulties

OTvest provides for those with a sensory processing disorder, and the OTvest can be worn throughout the day, discreetly, inexpensively, without the need of another individual providing the deep pressure. Persons putting the OTvest on for the first time almost always spontaneously say, “It feels good!” LEARN MORE

Deep pressure is registered in the limbic system, hippocampus, and reticular activating system and may stimulate production of neurotransmitters to modulate arousal levels, similar to the effects of medications. The use of the OTvest applies this deep pressure in a holistic, non-invasive and easily applied, discreet manner. LEARN MORE

The OTvest also stabilizes the trunk with the applied weight to the shoulder-girdle area, which helps control balance and improves the distal movement of the arms and hands. The weight across the back puts mild pressure upon the scapula, which encourages the scapula to lie flatter upon the back, which improves trunk stability. As the trunk is stabilized, drinking from a cup, combing one’s hair, keyboarding, holding a pencil or spoon, and other activities of daily living can be more controlled–especially if due to tremors or spasms. LEARN MORE
