Compression sheets are soft, machine washable, breathable, and made with sensory needs in mind. The perfect addition to bedtime, the compression sheet allows for movement without decreasing the input provided.This sensory compression sheet offers deep touch pressure (like a hug), which helps regulate the nervous system. Deep touch pressure releases serotonin which then turns into melatonin, leading to deeper, more restful sleep.
The compression sheet specifically provides proprioceptive input - deep pressure as well as tactile input, which is also known as Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). This type of sensory input has been shown to provide a calming effect for various individuals and situations.
Proprioceptive input Proprioception is the awareness of the position and movement of the body. Sensory receptors are located on your skin, joints, and muscles. When we move, these sensory receptors send signals to our brain, telling it about the movement's effort, force, and heaviness. Then our body can provide an appropriate response.When we think about proprioceptive movement, we can also include heavy work - any movement that works the muscles and deep pressure - any input that provides pressure to our body, and vibration. Proprioceptive input is typically calming to the nervous system.Individuals are usually not over-responsive to proprioception, meaning they don't have over-reactions to this type of sensory input. We do, however, see individuals who are under-responsive or sensory craving, meaning they want more heavy work, crashing, hugs, etc. These individuals typically respond well to the input that a compression sheet provides.The compression sheet provides proprioceptive input as you lay underneath it. You can adjust your body to get comfortable and adjust the sheet to cover your entire body or just your legs - whatever feels good! Because it’s breathable, you can also safely lay fully underneath.
