How does CalmCare work?
CalmCare provides the perfect dose of sensory input to help calm, soothe and support self-regulation. CalmCare also provides sensory input and proprioceptive feedback which is organising and regulating for the nervous system. CalmCare aids in filtering sensory information to improve the ability to listen and learn.

What types of CalmCare clothing could help my child?
CalmCare Singlet/Vest and Shirts provide a gentle ‘hug’ around the chest, shoulders, top of arms and torso. This has a calming effect and also provides proprioceptive input which is organising and regulating for the nervous system.

CalmCare long sleeved Shirts work as the short sleeved shirts, and also provide gentle compression to the lower arms.

CalmCare Shorts provide sensory style compression, so a child can sit and listen much more easily. They are especially useful for children who ‘wriggle’ or lack body awareness, or who feel the need to fall to the ground seeking sensory input. CalmCare shorts can be worn with or without a nappy and can also help with toilet training.

CalmCare Leggings work the same as the CalmCare Shorts (see above), and also provide gentle sensory style compression to the lower legs.

Why is your CalmTex TM fabric special?
CalmTex is a special breathable sensory fabric which is used to manufacture CalmCare. It is high quality, wicks away the sweat and is cool and comfortable to wear all year round, in all climates. CalmTex is also popular for children who have trouble regulating their body temperature.

Can CalmCare be worn to bed?

Many children wear a CalmCare compression singlet under their pyjamas at night (or a CalmCare shirt with regular pyjama pants). Children with sensory difficulties often wake, searching for sensory input – CalmCare can help them settle and stay asleep throughout the night. For children who access their nappy, CalmCare suits have a specially designed closure to deter wandering hands but allow easy access for the carer to change nappies.

** Please ensure the CalmCare logo is worn on the outside of the clothing, so the main stitching is away from the child’s skin.

Can CalmCare be worn all day, every day?

Best results are achieved by wearing CalmCare clothing and undergarments all day, every day. Children don’t build a resistance to CalmCare clothing, whereas they can only wear weighted clothing for a limited time each day. CalmCare is a popular choice for Occupational Therapists’ clients because CalmCare provides calming gentle sensory compression all day, every day.

** Please ensure the CalmCare logo is worn on the outside of the clothing, so the main stitching is away from the child’s skin.

Do all children feel comfortable in CalmCare clothing?

Almost all children like the feeling of wearing CalmCare immediately, however some children will take up to 2 days to get used to the sensation as they aren’t accustomed to feeling regulated. CalmCare clothing has special external stitching for a seamless feel and no tags (for children with tactile sensitivity). Children can wear CalmCare under their favourite clothing and school uniform. Once the child is accustomed to wearing CalmCare they may even crave the calming sensation.

** After washing, please ensure the CalmCare logo is worn on the outside of the clothing, so the main stitching is away from the child’s skin.
