Why MyBurrow®? How Is It Different?

MyBurrow® is an essential sensory tool made of premium fabric, the latest manufacturing techniques and seam technology. It comes with custom designed washing bag for easy care, storage and longevity.

Parents and teachers who work with children on intervention programs are likely to be familiar with the use of weighted vests and body socks.

These tools are particularly useful for children with developmental disabilities, including those who have issues with controlling levels of excitability, sensory stimulative behaviour, anxiety, proprioceptive delays, attention and other related issues. “Weighted blankets” are also now available for adults who have difficulties achieving a “deep relaxing sleep”.

The Uniqueness of MyBurrow® in Comparison to Weighted Vests, Body Socks, and Traditional Lycra Tunnels

Like weighted vests and body socks MyBurrow® may also be used to assist with behavioural issues. However, in contrast, it has a variety of unique characteristics. These characteristics assist with its flexibility of use in a variety of environments.

Unlike weighted vests, traditional lycra tunnels and body socks;

  • MyBurrow® is designed to be non restrictive, as students can initiate and control their use and involvement.
  • The pressure panel tension is adjustable and hence may be varied to meet the child’s sensory needs.
  • MyBurrow® is highly flexible in that it may be used with a variety of children at the same time, without losing time that is associated with swapping and sharing vests.
  • MyBurrow® allows for continuous sensory stimulation throughout an activity. Its fixed positioning ensures ease of accessibility and safety in most classroom and home environments. The need to put on and take off a vest or hold a lycra tunnel or a body sock during an activity has the potential to be a significant distractor.
  • When children are working with MyBurrow® they remain in a defined locality within the room or clinic, hence reducing the possible impact of environmental distractions.
