Squease VestThis is our second purchase from Fun and Function. We liked our Squeeze vest so we came back for some holiday gifts for our son with autism. So excited to see what he likes!Read MoreNot as great as it seemsIt sounds like a great idea pumping up like a blood pressure cuff but it didn't seem to provide as much pressure to the body as I expected that it would. Heather Santesson Raindance Occupational TherapyRead Moreamazing differenceI've used the vest for a week. It takes about 2 minutes for me to be calm once the vest is on and inflated. I love that I can wear it in the summer and that it isn't bulky even when inflated. The zipper makes putting the vest on super easy. I just wish the jacket was included with the vest. That's my next purchase.Read MoreFantastic item!The vest is a fantastic item and the deep pressure it provides is certainly beneficial for children who like my daughter need this. I think if my daughter had began using this item at an early age she would have been able to learn how to regulate her anxiety levels. Our occupational therapist is very impressed with it and has passed on your details to her colleagues.Read MoreComforting and calmingMy daughter absolutely loves her squeeze vest. I’ve observed her almost ‘shutting down’ as she puts her vest on and retreats into a comforting and calming place. She told me that it gives her a better sense of herself, of where her body ends and of where she is. It is the magical vest that I guessed it would be for her!!Read MoreI am so pleased that that we found out about the Squease vest!My 10 year old daughter, Willemijn, has ADHD and Asperger syndrome. She has been using a Squease vest for one week and is wearing it all the time. We borrowed the vest from a friend in order to try it out and now my daughter won’t take it off. I am so pleased that that we found out about the Squease vest; especially because the older my daughter becomes the more difficulties she seems to have with sensory input and feeling anxious. She says it gives a very nice and relaxing feeling and she loves to wear it when she is feeling stressed or over-stimulated. You can see that she gets very calm and relaxed. She has also been wearing it to school. She shows her vest to everyone and promotes it. So that says it all, I think. She thinks the blue hooded sweatshirt is very beautiful and soft. When it is too hot, she wears the vest without the hooded sweatshirt. We have now ordered a Squease vest for her brother. If the delivery time is as quick as with Willemijn’s vest, we soon will have two very happy children. It is a fairly expensive item, but the quality is very good and when you see the effect it is worth every penny. Even her school is now considering getting one.Read MoreThe vest makes me feel confidentI am a young man. I live in a studio flat where there is support 24 hours a day. I am often anxious. Sometimes life is extremely difficult for me. I'm often afraid that I'll end up alone. In the place where I live now, I have only few friends that I can rely on. I have one very good friend and he is always there for me. Because I do not always understand my environment it can be very stressful. I cannot cope with busy environments. Sometimes my head feels like it is going to explode - there is so much going on - which causes problems. After consultation with my key worker, I have tried a Squease vest. When I wore the vest, I felt relaxed and calm. When I become anxious, I increase the pressure. I like it when the vest is very tight around my body; it makes me feel calmer and I can handle everything better. I am also more aware of my posture and walk with my back straight, which is good because I normally tend to stoop (I look at the ground rather than looking up). Now I walk around with more confidence. I have now purchased the vest because it means so much to me. It is so easy to inflate. I worked out how it works really quickly. I’m very happy with my vest!!!Read MoreWendy and her SqueaseWendy Lawson has been using a Squease vest and talks about its use in her lectures and talks. Some comments she made about Squease: “I love it, more pressure, just all around. I like the pressure on my chest. In a shopping centre or going for a plane - anything where there’s lots of noise or chaos I really value the Squease. I'm 'living' in my Squease and really enjoying its benefits.” Wendy says about deep pressure: “I think that it enables the senses to calm down and that enables me, because there is lowered stress, lowered frustration and so much less activity going on. In general, it’s freeing up attention; not enough to learn but enough to help settle or cope with a situation that I could potentially learn from. Deep pressure is one more tool that I use… that helps me to exist, really.” When she was wearing the Squease vest: “Ahh that’s lovely. That feels nice. I feel like there’s a force field around me.” DR. WENDY LAWSONRead MoreGive me a HugWe have a 9 year old severely Autistic daughter, who has frequent meltdowns. At times we have been able to calm her by hugging her tightly, so we thought we would try the Squease deep pressure vest, to see if it could help. In our opinion it is an excellent product, although our daughter has not made the conceptual leap to self inflate the vest, she is happy for us to do that, and she can release the pressure herself when she wants to. It is easy to put on and adjust, and although our daughter is non verbal, trust me she is very able to let us know if she is not happy, and we have had no problems at all. We can not praise the product, service, or staff highly enough.Read More

The elasticated sides to make them quite breathable, but if the user is someone who gets very uncomfortable with heat its unlikely to be that effective for them.Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / May 25, 2016Frantzie Pierre/ Wilny Pierrre / May 11, 2016Here is the link to the size chart to measure for the vest: https://funandfunction.com/deep-pressure-vest.html We have a 90 day return or exchange policy if the item is in perfect resellable condition.
