Therapeutic Weighted Belt
The Sensory Belt™ is a weighted therapy belt which promotes self-calming, balance, and increased body awareness by enhancing proprioceptive feedback. Within minutes of wearing the Sensory Belt™ you will feel more grounded, focused, and secure!
During development of the Sensory Belt™ our main focus was to create a safe and effective sensory aid to help improve the lives of as many children, teens, and adults with sensory needs as possible. We found one of the best ways to improve sensory development is by providing additional weight around the core of the body.
The Sensory Belt™ is being used by parents, teachers and therapists in all 50 states and over 30 countries worldwide. Over 13,000 children, teens and adults have been helped so far by the Sensory Belt™. We have heard stories of children walking for the first time, reaching milestones not thought possible, and even being mainstreamed within a few months of regular use of the belt. Many care givers appreciate how user friendly the belts are to use making their sessions more productive with less resistance from the child.
The Sensory Belt™ is a weighted therapy belt designed for children, teens, and adults weighing more than 75 pounds. The Miracle Belt™ is a pediatric weighted therapy belt specifically designed for infants and children weighing less than 75 pounds. The Thera-Belt™ is a weighted therapy belt designed with removable weights specifically for therapists and/or physicians.

Is the Sensory Belt better than a weighted vest?
Definitely! There are a number of reasons why the Sensory Belt™ is more effective than a weighted vest. During development of the Sensory Belt™ many therapists shared the problems they encountered while using the weighted vest. One occupational therapist told us about how one of her ADHD clients began throwing the weight from the vest because he didn't like the way the weighted vest felt. Due to these types of experiences with the weighted vest our consulting therapists recommended we design the weighted belt with stationary weight. Because the weighted belt is centered around the waist less weight is needed to provide effective proprioceptive feedback for sensory regulation. So the old mentality of 10% of body weight has been thrown out the window. Not only does less weight work more effectively around the waist but it also elliminates excess body heat and discomfort caused by the weighted vest. The belt is also adjustable which provides extended wear as your child grows. Many therapists have noticed how the weighted vest effects posture, especially with children who are low tone. The weighted belt provides children with a solid base of support creating a stronger core which is the foundation of all movement. The therapeutic weighted belt is clearly the most effective weighted therapy for infants and children with Autism, ADHD, and sensory needs.
