WHY YOU NEED SEAMLESS GARMENTS

Proprioceptive Disorder + Excessive Behavior

Proprioception is the body’s ability to sense movement, location, and actions. Sensory receptors located in the muscles, joints and tendons send messages to the brain giving you a sense of body awareness and a control of force and pressure. A disorder of the proprioceptive system is one of the many forms of sensory processing disorder. Children with a proprioceptive disorder tend to hyperextend their joints, use excessive pressure holding objects, or excessively hit their hands together or hit other parts of the body with their hands. The behavior is all in an effort to seek the proprioceptive input they lack.

HOW WE CAN HELP

Proprioceptive Input + Body Awareness

One of the solutions that therapists suggest for children with a proprioceptive disorder is wearing compression or weighted clothing. The firm, consistent pressure of compression garments provides children with the proprioceptive input they need. This increased body awareness helps to calm children. SmartKnitKIDS compression garments are super soft, lightweight and comfortable for children needing proprioceptive input. Compression Arm Sleeves, Compresso-T Tube Garment, and the original Compresso-T give children a proprioceptive input option that makes them feel the most comfortable.
