NAPA’s Director of Intensive Therapy Services, Jess, is here to talk about the NeuroSuit.
The NeuroSuit is a great therapeutic tool that we have been using at NAPA Center for many years. One thing I want to say right off the bat is that it is a therapeutic tool, not magic. However, we really like to impart the knowledge to our parents that the NeuroSuit can be very beneficial for increasing the overall benefits of your child’s pediatric therapy sessions. Now, let’s approach the questions we get the most: What is the NeuroSuit? Is it a pediatric compression vest? A weighted compression vest? How does the compression vest benefit toddlers and children? Is the NeuroSuit compression vest beneficial for autism or sensory processing disorders?
In the simplest terms, the NeuroSuit does three things: it loads (pressure), it compresses, and it aligns. I’ll explain a little bit about what I mean.
Is the NeuroSuit vest appropriate for my child or toddler?
Number one: If you are concerned about general posture and alignment for your toddler or child, that’s a win. NeuroSuit would be great for that kid.
Number two: The NeuroSuit may benefit children with general strength impairments. NeuroSuit is really good for activating muscles of the glutes, the lower extremities, and the back.
Number three: If you just really want to add an extra challenge and mix up the challenge of your general therapeutic activities, the NeuroSuit can be a really awesome addition to your therapeutic program.
