A Backpack for Kids with Autism

Kids with autism sometimes wear weighted vests that compress around their bodies. This sensory experience can have a calming effect. A responsible adult can see when a kid with autism needs one and respond by putting it on.

That's helpful when such an adult is handy. But when the child is alone, a compression vest may not be an option--until now. Mitch Barbon designed the Compression Pack. It's a combination compression vest and backpack. The child wears it as a normal school backpack, then activates it when needed by squeezing on a hidden air pump. The straps, which have hollow tubes, inflate, providing a compressing sensation.

This is 1 of 3 award-winning products for kids with autism featured at Core77.
