The Squease Vest is a new tool designed to help those with Autism remain calm during stressful situations. The vest works using the principles of deep pressure therapy; a therapy system that uses hugs, tight wraps and other pressure-applying techniques to provide a calming sensation.
The Squease Vest is designed to provide this same calming sensation, only it can fit underneath clothing and be controlled by the wearer. The Squease Vest has a hand pump that can be used to inflate it during stressful situations. The wearer can inflate the vest until they begin to feel comfortable, and then deflate it when they're okay. The vest is designed to be lightweight, discreet and nonirritating. The vest will debut at the 2012 Autism Show in London, and will be priced at around $380, with a Squease Vest and hooded jacket combo selling for $457.
