Apparently pressure applied to the torso of autistic children helps keep regulate the sensory system to relieve anxiety, reduce unwanted behaviors, and help increase focus to complete daily tasks. The BearHug is a simple vest that inflates around the torso to give this support. The pressure of the jacket is controlled via this cute teddy bear’s paw plus the supervisor can monitor the pressure gauge settings. The good news is that this vest is available for beta testing and should prove to be a great help!
