How to use a Squease vest?
Most frequently asked questions
It’s not possible to over inflate the Squease vest with a Squease hand pump. For the safety of the user, the hand pump has a built-in valve, which limits the maximum pressure level the vest can be inflated to. The Squease Kids vests have a second safety valve built into the vest to ensure a safe pressure limit is not exceeded.DO NOT inflate the pressure vest with any device other than pumps supplied by Squease Ltd.
20 minutes of inflation is a guideline based on observations made by Occupation Therapists, but you may prefer to have the pressure applied for shorter or longer periods of time. Experiment with the duration of applying pressure to determine an optimal length of time for you. If you find that you want to keep your vest inflated for longer than 20 minutes – for example for the duration of a longer stress-inducing activity – you will not experience any harm in keeping the vest inflated for a longer period.
The pressure vest can be wiped with a damp cloth or hand washed with mild soap in cold-lukewarm water. Air-dry in a shaded place. Before you start cleaning your vest, disconnect the hand pump with the pump release valve, so that no water can accidentally get into the vest.
