Snug Vest featured on CBC news
CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) reports “Autism Device Hidden in Designer Vest” featuring the Snug Vest team and Xander Edwards, child with Autism from Chilliwack, Canada, who benefited from wearing the vest. The child mentions that “[the Snug Vest] helps you, it hugs.”
Weighted vests are used to treat children with autism. Lisa Fraser, the inventor of the Snug Vest didn’t think that using weight for providing pressure onto the body was a user-friendly solution. Fraser then “came up with the concept of using air instead of weight.” The concept has received numerous international design awards including the Red Dot, Spark Awards, IDSA, and Autism Speaks – the largest autism advocacy organization in the world.
The Snug Vest Team wishes to continue improving the daily lives of individuals with autism. We thank all of the families, friends, organizations, who have been supporting us since the beginning.
