    Description

    Details

    The Squeeze Machine is used for deep touch stimulation and produces a calming effect on hyperactive and autistic individuals. The Squeeze Machine allows the individual to control the amount of pressure, as well as the release of pressure.

    The Squeeze Machine can be used by children and adults because it is adjustable in a number of ways. The machine has a series of slots and holes to allow approximately 14” of adjustment in width at the base of the pads. There are also slots to adjust the headrest height, slides to adjust for differing head widths, and the hand control center is adjustable from side to side and from front to back. One set of pads is included, which will accommodate either children or adults.

    It consists of two padded side boards which are hinged at the bottom to form a V-shape. The user steps into the machine and lies down on the inside of the V-shaped crevice-like space. The inside surfaces of the device are completely lined with thick foam rubber. Deep touch pressure stimulation is applied along both sides of the persons body, with lateral pressure pushing inward onto the body. The V-shaped space supports the body fully from head to toe, so that the users can completely relax.

    The contoured padding provides an even pressure across the entire lateral aspect of the body without generating specific pressure points. The foam-padded headrest and padded neck opening are covered with soft fake fur. The user has complete control over the amount of pressure applied. A lever-operated pneumatic valve, which is connected to an air cylinder that pulls the side boards together, allows the user to self-regulate the amount of pressure applied.

    Additional Information

    Why is the Squeeze Machine more effective than rolling in a blanket or mat for deep touch stimulation?
    The advantage of the Squeeze Machine over other forms of deep pressure stimulation, such as rolling in blankets or mats, is that the machine can apply greater amounts of pressure over larger areas of the body, much greater pressure than a blanket, yet still be comforting and soothing to an individual. The air cylinder power applies constant pressure, even when the user shifts position.

     
    Another advantage is that the amount and duration of the pressure can be precisely controlled by the user. The user can apply the pressure to his or her self, yet the maximum pressure that can be applied can be easily controlled by the therapist adjusting the pressure regulator on the Squeeze Machine.
     
    As a person uses the Squeeze Machine, the individual can apply firm yet positive contact to his or her self. The user’s active control of the amount of touch pressure he or she receives is of the foremost importance. Since the Squeeze Machine is designed to feel very much like being held by another person, the device might help the user to accept, and perhaps enjoy, being held or touched by another person.
