Professor Takahiro Ishi from Teikyo University of Science (TUS) had a nice experience with T.Jacket recently and gave some feedback
First off, T.Jacket is awesome!
Today I tried T.Jacket on two children which were sent for trials.
They were both restless or having difficulties in controlling their emotions, both were candidates which I expected certain effects of T.Jacket after considering their profile.
In both results of the two children, their behavior became stable, and I could hear the words "fun", "pleasant" and "refreshing", "settle" such as "I want this".
A key point through this small trial- I felt that it is necessary to adjust the pressure depending on the child.
It is important to grasp the reactivity against the stimulus for each child, such as needs for VERY strong stimulus, or needs for SOFT stimulus.
I found a description on T.Jacket that wrote "please consult the occupational therapist when using this item to determine the level of pressure required."
I think this point is important. Users shouldn't consider the effect of the jacket and what pressure to use as a counter measure against hyperactivity or restlessness. I strongly recommend to use the jacket by consulting an OT who are able to determine its effect from deep understanding of child's profile.
I find it very saddening if an undesirable result without OT's advice become the most-watched mainstream data.
