“Hyperactivity can be super tiring for everyone else around the hyper person. When you’re hyper, a safe place to have fun was up there in importance. Going for a run around outside or bounce on the tramp was often not enough or practical. I created the Body Sock for it to be stretchy and snuggley to get inside for the right proprioceptive input, as per the advice from an Occupational Therapist.
We found him socialising with friends was tricky, it would often trigger that hyper that even the peer was asking to have calmed down. The body sock allowed for all the animation necessary for that sometimes annoying state to come down a few notches. We are all into kids have loud, crazy fun… but I think you know what I mean when I say that sometimes it just becomes hard for everyone else. In those time the body sock is perfect. The body sock while gaming, or watching a movie helped fix this social awkwardness with mates.
At the end of a hyperactive time, was most often either the Iceberg state or the Volcano state. Tears, immense sadness or anger. This is common with ADHD as the brain is having trouble regulating and is burning out at that moment. Things are no longer so funny any more at that point. We found the Body Sock helped stop such great highs and lows. ” Maria Quayle-Guppy MAPS founder and Reset Mindset director
