"Thank you Snug Vest! What an amazing product! Antony is able to put the vest on unassisted, and pump-up and deflate it himself. He loves to pump it up! For the first time ever we had no problems when shopping in Walmart and it was all because he was wearing the Snug Vest! We have been able to successfully stop 5 out of 7 meltdowns due to the Snug Vest and calm him safely just by putting the vest on and inflating it! We’ve also prevented plenty more meltdowns just having him wear the vest throughout the day, especially during stressful moments. I highly recommend this vest to anyone! I wish we had it sooner. Thank you so much." -Jessica Leroux, Antony's Mom
Researchers at the psychology department of the University of Victoria conducted an ABAB Withdrawl design research study on the effects of Snug Vest on anxiety and behaviour in 7 children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The researchers found a significant interaction between treatment and time point for parents' subjective ratings of attention and for salivary cortisol levels, and a significant effect of the vest on naïve coders' ratings of problem behaviours.

"I had the opportunity to work with a young girl of nine years old. She was diagnosed with a Global Developmental Delay. She presented with many significant sensory processing and motor challenges. She typically was extremely low muscle tone, highly distractable and tended to be more comfortable in interacting with the outside world as opposed to focusing on what her body or her hands were doing.It was extremely challenging to keep her engaged in any task, as she could not rely on her body to provide her with stability or with the necessary feedback to use her body efficiently. It was so much easier for her to engage everyone by talking and avoid doing. I had noticed that she was more engaged in a ball pond and demonstrated a little more focus. The real magic happened, for this child, when she tried a Snug Vest. As she pumped up the vest, it looked as though she was experiencing her body for the first time. She was able to maintain an upright posture, which was usually extremely challenging. She was immediately more present in her body and did not use her usual avoidant behaviour of engaging others in her environment but was able to stay focused on the task at hand. She was immediately aware of the difference and was very proud of her sustained efforts. She would ask her teacher if she could use her vest at different times during the day. This was very neat to see." - Jennifer S., Occupational therapist
