Body Socks are ideal for individuals with autism and other sensory processing disorders who crave sensory input, particularly proprioceptive and vestibular input, the sensory Body Socks are a fun and different way to get this input. Sensory Body Socks are very stretchy and provide resistance when you move in them. This provides deep pressure through the joints (proprioceptive input) and when you move around in different ways, this provides the vestibular input (balance and movement in space).
