Order the OTvest

Hidden weight insertThe amount of weight used in the OTvest is based upon the research published in The American Journal of Occupational Therapy, and in Pediatric Issues in Occupational Therapy: A Compendium of Leading Scholarship by Nancy VandenBerg, MS, OTR. This research is based on her experience with over 150 children using the vests, in addition with collaboration with other therapists. Each wearer is unique, however, and the weighted vest should be used under the guidance or suggestion of an occupational or physical therapist, and worn under adult supervision.


Weights (lead free) are  evenly distributed and quilted into a high tenacity nylon “yoke” that attaches/detaches to the inside of the well-made and stylish, 12 oz. denim vest, with hook/loop tape to remove for washing. Snap closure.
The durable OTvest will last for many, many years.
