Sensory Body Socks

A body sock is a sensory-based tool used in occupational therapy sessions to provide proprioceptive and deep pressure input.

These types of input offer calming and organizing benefits to the participant. Made of Lycra, a body sock is a sack-like piece of stretchy fabric that covers the child’s entire body, with an opening for the head. It is likened to the idea of a sleeping bag, where one can climb completely inside. Most commercially available body socks have a Velcro-enclosure.

A body sock is portable, fun and can be used creatively!

Body socks are flexible in their use!

An occupational therapist can engage a client actively in a specific, therapeutically designed treatment activity; or it can be offered at home in a dramatic play area for dress-up.

Lightweight and easy to transport, it is great for therapists to have in their therapy “bag” of tricks, especially for home and school visits. A body sock has been used for clients with autism, who typically experience sensory processing difficulties.
Today, there are many children without autism who struggle with sensory regulation that can benefit from using a body sock.

What does a Body Sock do?
A body sock is used for sensory regulation, maintaining a calm but alert state; where impulses, emotions, and behavior are in check. It provides calming and organizing input to the participant, all over the body at the same time.

Using a body sock can promote the skill of body awareness knowing where your body is in space - meaning where your body begins and ends, and its proximity to other objects and people.

The body sock gives immediate feedback to the tactile and proprioceptive systems when it is worn, both in one static position or used for dynamic movement-based tasks.  
Climbing inside a body sock can minimize visual input, especially when an environment is overwhelming.

It can target motor planning skills; challenging the user to figure out how to move the body while wearing it.
