Weighted vest for children


Sensory-stimulating weighted vest specially developed for children with ADHD, autism, or difficulty winding down. Research shows that children and adolescents perform better in school when using a weighted vest. In consultation with psychiatrists and stress therapists, we have developed a weighted vest specifically designed for children, enveloping the body and contributing to calmness and increased focus. The sleek design and slim fit also allow the vest to be worn in any setting – at home or at school. The filling of soft fiber threads provides a weight that is evenly distributed across the entire vest, making it flexible and comfortable to wear – even for extended periods. The vest has a sturdy elastic sewn into the waist that can be easily adjusted to the body shape. This regulates the feeling of weight and pressure, relieving the back and shoulders. Available in sizes 110-116, 122-128, 134-140, 146-152.

A stylish weighted vest for children

Novista’s weighted vest is designed to provide calmness and security for children who need help settling down. The vest follows the body’s contours, creating an embracing sensation, like a hug. Welcome to secure, focused days.

Functional design – developed for prolonged use

The weight element in our weighted vests consists of textile fibers, making the material extra flexible and soft. Our construction creates even pressure across the body. The vest has a sturdy elastic sewn into the waist, easily adjustable to body shape. This regulates the feeling of weight and pressure, relieving the back and shoulders.

The product is made from a dirt- and stain-resistant material. This allows the vest to be wiped clean with a damp cloth and hung for airing when needed. The Fiber Weighted Vest can withstand washing up to 60 degrees, but for environmental reasons, we recommend washing at a maximum of 40 degrees.

Valued within schools by more children than you think – inner anxiety can be invisible

Schools can purchase the Fiber Weighted Vest as an aid. We are happy to coach you on how to introduce it in the classroom. The Fiber Weighted Vest is especially appreciated by children with ADHD and autism, but our experience shows that more children experience increased focus with the vest.

Fair production, from coast to coast

Our innovative weighted vest is created in Båstad, on the Swedish west coast, and manufactured in Porto on the Portuguese sunny coast. Since the start in 2013, Novista has worked to make high-quality weighted products accessible, improving people’s lives.
