From a vest user with autism
"I got the bio hug jacket tonight and have just got back from a walk testing it out.
I found it very securing, it greatly reduced my level of anxiety and took away a sensation that my body was aggressively trying to blow itself apart.
Other major improvements included no urge to sway left or right in an open-environment, no feeling of needing to walk faster than others and little to no disorientation."
A clinical trial of the BioHug Vest with people on the autism spectrum (ASD) showed a marked calming effect on this population.
Physical therapists working with a wide variety of people under stress -- sensory processing disorders (SPD), post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), as well as ASD -- have reported that the BioHug Vest works equally well in environments such as school and home.
Report by a school for young adults with both physical and mental disabilities:
"Vest worn by a 21-year-old, non-verbal woman who walks only with assistance.
While wearing the vest, she walked without objection on the treadmill, smiling at times. Usually she would refuse to cooperate and just sit on the treadmill belt. After getting off the treadmill she began to laugh, this was the first time the staff had ever heard her laugh. While wearing the vest the woman supported more of her own body weight than usual."
OneFamily, an organization that helps victims of terror, used the BioHug Vest with great success to bring relief to people suffering from post-trauma distress following terror attacks in southern Israel in 2012 .
