BioHug Vests lower stress and anxiety in all people by taking advantage of the fundamental response of the human nervous system to Deep Pressure. Clinical trials have shown that BioHug vests are especially helpful in calming people who are under daily stress from sensory processing disorders, autism, ADHD, PTSD or other conditions.
When you wear a Biohug Vest, your nervous system calms down and, as a result, you can stay on task instead of obsessively worrying, pacing, wiggling, or "stimming." If the pressure from the vest were always on the same spot, your body would get used to it. That's called habituation in the scientific literature. When your body gets used to a particular sensory input, it tends to ignore it and then that sensation stops having an effect on you. That's why the BioHug Vest continuously changes the placement of the deep pressure using a patented algorithm that prevents habituation. And that's the reason that the BioHug Vest is so much more effective than weighted vests or air pressure vests that are activated by an air pump.
We are also developing the Vest Pro and Sens PD as tools for professionals working with people who have sensory processing disorders. We hope to bring them to market in the near future. Read more about them below.
