Sensory Body Socks are a fun and a different way to get this input. Sensory Body Socks are very stretchy and provide resistance when you move in them. This provides deep pressure through the joints (proprioceptive input) and when you move around in different ways, this provides the vestibular input (balance and movement in space).
Body Socks are suitable for home, specialist clinics or school based sensory programs and are light weight making them ideal to take on family holidays.
