"The Miracle Belt™ has had an amazing effect on my son! The belt calms him down and allows him to be better focused so he is able to sit and color, play games, etc. without extraneous movement. At seven years old my son asks for his belt because he knows it's helping him. Every child who has Sensory Integration Disorder should have one of these."
Marijane Farr,
Mother of a Child with PDD-NOS & SID


"I gave a Miracle Belt™ to my first ADHD client, and I was truly amazed at the instant positive reaction this boy had. He immediately expressed that he felt the weight of the belt helped him calm his body and reduce his hyperactivity. I had him take the belt home for use with his parents, and the next week they all reported that the belt had continued to help him control his activity level. My client said it felt like magic. His parents said he had only had to use the belt a few times, and that the results had lasted longer each time."
Terry Alan Hayes, Ph.D.
Licensed Psychologist (Marshfield MA)


"As a primary care pediatrician I have been truly impressed by the therapeutic benefit of the Miracle Belt™. The Miracle Belt™ has assisted several of my patients with proprioceptive deficits as well as those with poor truncal tone to achieve significant milestones such as sitting, walking and climbing steps. I would urge therapists and physicians working with children with these types of special healthcare needs to consider a therapeutic trial with the Miracle Belt."
Dr. Patricia J. Blanco, M.D.,
Primary Care Pediatrician (Sarasota FL)


"When comparing the Miracle Belt™ to a weighted vest, the belt is far superior! Weighted vests are cumbersome and the weights do not sit evenly which can jeopardize the benefits of the input they are intended to provide. Therapeutically, it makes sense to provide the weight at the center of the trunk, because this is where movement stability and movement patterns come from."
Kelly Beins,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L (Jefferson MD)


"Using the Miracle Belt™ is like having an extra pair of hands. The calming effect of the belt allows for improved interaction and focus. The belt is helpful for all situations: Home, School or Therapy."
Ouida Wellenberger,
Physical Therapist PT


"During my sessions I've been using the Miracle Belt™ with a 5 year-old girl with the diagnosis of Down syndrome. The belt has helped keep her more focused and on task. She is much calmer and easier to work with when wearing the belt. When I took the belt off of her, she tried to put it back on, indicating to me that the benefit of the belt was apparent to her. I'm very pleased with the Miracle Belt™."
Tamara Griffith,
Speech Therapist (Gainesville FL)


"The Miracle Belt™ is often worn by several of my students for short periods of time to help them calm down and be able to focus on their assigned tasks. Some of the students will go and get the belt themselves when they feel the need for the weight provided by the belt. "
Jane Foppe MEd,
Autistic Spectrum Disorder Teacher


"I have definitely seen a difference in my clients that have been wearing the belts. I have used the Miracle Belt™ on 5 different clients and seen greater stability in their pelvis creating more balance and less shifting. I have also been able to adjust the tilt of their pelvis by the placement of the weight either in front or behind. I have also used the belt for simply what it is - weight - giving the client more resistance to strengthen their legs."
Missy Delaney MEd,
Program Manager at Freedom Ride, Inc. (Orlando FL)


"I just wanted to say thank you so much! About a week ago I bought a Miracle Belt for my son who has ADHD. We've tried different medications and all they did was make him depressed. I didn't know what else to do. He wouldn't sit still for his teachers and wouldn't do the things they asked. They would tell me he's a smart boy but he wouldn't sit still or do his work. Today was the first day he used the belt and the teachers said he was another kid! He was so much more focused and completed all of his work! Thank you so much!"
Kimberly Spivey,
Mother of a Child with ADHD


"Wanted to thank you for the Miracle Belt™! Charlie has been wearing the belt now for almost three weeks and the results are visible! Our OT is so impressed with the results that she said she's never seen so much progress in three weeks. She has made the belt a mandatory item for all her kids on the spectrum and several of them have purchased the belt! Thank you so much!"
Kristina Bant Jenkins,
Mother of a Child on the Autism Spectrum


"My sister ordered the Miracle Belt™ for my son (6) who has been dxd with Frontal Lobe Syndrome, Sensory Processing Disorder and Hypokenisis. He always had trouble sitting still and staying focused since he was constantly looking for sensory input. I had my doubts about this belt, since he refused and downright hated, wearing a weighted vest.

To my surprise he loved it and was able to sit still for over 15 mins to get some homework done. He now asks for the belt when it's homework time and has even begged me to allow him to take it to school.

This belt is truly a miracle. I am so grateful to my sister for finding your website and ordering your wonderful product."

Lisa Staffa,
Mother of a Child with FLS, SPD, & Hypokenisis


"Thank you very much for the Miracle Belt™. It's well made! My son resisted it at first until we made it tight around his waist. He was agitated over the weekend so I put the belt on him. He sat in a swing with the belt on and calmed down immediately. I knew the belt worked, but when you experience the effect in person, it's amazing!"
Tammy Andersson,
Mother of a Child with Autism


"We have lots of patients who are using the Miracle Belt™ during their weekly treatment sessions, it is definitely assisting with regulation, calming and organizing their sensory system enabling them to better attend to task. We are seeing the greatest improvements with patients who have Sensory Processing Disorders and those on the Autism spectrum."
Malka Schnitzer,
Occupational Therapist COTA/L,
Owner of The Therapy Spot, LLC (Baltimore MD)


"Wearing the Miracle Belt™ was the first time my grandson sat quietly through dinner in 10 years. He asked to take the belt to school because it "holds him down" and he is able to concentrate better."
Barbara Harle,
Grandmother of a Child with ADHD


"The Miracle Belt™ is such a blessing for my daughter! She is already loving the belt (not to mention mom is loving it). The belt is so much easier to use than a vest which is hot and uncomfortable or dealing with a lap pad which is constantly sliding off her lap. Her therapist at the hospital is eagerly waiting to use the Miracle Belt™."
Renee Knoblauch,
Mother of a Child with SPD, PDD-NOS, OCD and a rare Chromesome Deletion


"I would love for you all to know that my husband & I, as well as our family and friends are VERY impressed with the results from the Miracle Belt™. Landon has several neurological problems that start from Epilepsy, SID, and as well as a cyst on his occipital lob. He has not been diagnosed yet but they think he might also be on the spectrum of Autism. Landon does many things from sitting and spinning his head, being very uncomfortable in unfamiliar places, to just constantly squalling all the time. With the Miracle Belt™ he is a calm and well behaved little two year old. His screaming and spinning is 98% better. My son's Neurologist was so impressed by the belt and is going to start recommending them to his patients. A MILLION THANKS TO ALL WHO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR THE ONES IN NEED!."
Wendy Tipps,
Mother of a child with Epilepsy and SID


"Since Pacsun has been wearing the Miracle Belt™ his balance has improved plus he is able to walk with his walker with minimal assistance."
DeAnna Nichols,
Mother of a Child with Cerebral Palsy (Chicago IL)


"We have tried many things over the years to help in our son's development. At 10 years of age he was unable to walk unassisted. We knew the problem was his balance. After reading about the Miracle Belt™ in the newspaper, we immediately ordered one online. Our son is now walking all around the house without any help. In fact, he constantly surprises us when he just walks into the room. We've dreamt of this moment for ten years. So, in our mind, the Miracle Belt truly is a miracle!"
Drs. Frank and Lisa Lanzisera,
Parents of a Child with Down Syndrome (Bradenton FL)


"Wanted to say that my sons, both on the Autism spectrum, have been successfully using their Miracle Belts. When my 4 1/2 (now 5) year old son wears his belt, he is able to attend more easily at the table during his ABA sessions. Thanks again for your products!"
Rachel Walters,
Mother of Children with Autism


"My son has ADHD and when I put the belt on him it makes a big difference! When I took the belt off of him, the other members of the family said, "Mom put the belt back on Zachary!" They like the fact that Zachary is calmer and less hyper when he wears the belt."
Cheryl Long,
Mother of a Child with ADHD


"The Miracle Belt™ is a useful tool in assisting children with poor sensory awareness of pelvic stability and core strength to feel more grounded. This can assist in adapting to variable external stimuli without triggering a fight or flight reaction resulting in better adaptive responses."
Jean K. Colyer,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L (Brandon FL)


"Hi! I just wanted to let you know that we received our Miracle Belt™ last week. Coincidentally, my son had a horrible day and was very emotionally sensitive and upset. We put on his "happy belt" and there was an immediate difference. He laid on the floor and colored for a good hour and seemed "different" and calmer.

To be perfectly honest with you, I really thought it was going to be another waste of my money, like all the other stuff I have purchased, but this thing really is amazing!"
Andrea Staves,
Mother of a Child with SID


"The Miracle Belt™ has proven helpful through many of my treatment sessions. The weighted belt is useful for both calming and enhancing sensory input. I love that it is easy to put on and take off, it gives the input where it's needed most (at the core), and the kids don't mind wearing it. I've tried to use a weighted vest with various kids and they refuse to wear it, I think because it's intimidating or too overwhelming for them. Or, the weighted vest just doesn't seem to make a noticeable difference. The Miracle Belt™ however is less threatening to a young child. They can put it on themselves and it doesn't get in the way of the activity they are trying to do. One little boy I use it with, likes that it's quiet. I think he is hypersensitive to the sound of the velcro fasteners on the weighted vest, but the belt has no velcro to fasten so it's a quick and quiet on and off!
Kelly Beins,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L


"My grandson was quite pleased to wear the Miracle Belt™ and seemed to think he was singled out for special treatment. He wore the belt for about 10 minutes, stayed calm the entire time, and we were able to refocus his attention and get him out of his overly stimulated spiral."
Katherine Walker MEd,
Grandmother of a Child with Autism


"We have just begun using the Miracle Belt™ with our four year old daughter who has Down syndrome. She does seem to have better balance and coordination while wearing the belt. We are working on going up and down stairs and she has exhibited more confidence with the belt on."
Jason & Susan Edwards,
Parents of a Child with Down syndrome


"The Miracle Belt™ is the easiest weighted therapy to put on without interference from the child. My children find the belts more comfortable than wearing a weighted vest. A few of my clients have complained about the weighted vests being too hot."
Tamara Griffith,
Speech Therapist


"Wonderful news!! We finally wore the belt last night!! AND! He had zero meltdowns in the HUGE crowd at the community center! FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! NO TEARS! Praise GOD!

The best part was when we offered to take it off... Are you ready for this... He didn't want to!! I was just all smiles all night, what a blessing to watch your baby who has always been so panic stricken and full of anxiety and fear to look happy and calm and "fitting in" the entire night... I was just beside myself... thank-you"
Chasity Head,
Mother of a Child with SID


"The Miracle Belt™ has really helped my daughter calm down."
Sarah Carter,
Mother of a child with ADHD

"With the use of the Miracle Belt™ I see an immediate improvement in sensory regulation. The impact the belt has on children with sensory deficits and motor delays is amazing! The Miracle Belt™ is a 'must have' sensory aid!"
Rebecca Murphy,
Occupational Therapist MHS, OTR/L


"Emma was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Issues early in the year. A few months later she was re-diagnosed with mild Autism. She has issues focusing for more than 5 minutes while doing tasks. She uses her jumping as a self-stimming act to bring a sense of groundedness. She does this regularly to help her process the inputs coming into her sensory system.

She has been using the “Miracle Belt™” for a few weeks now, and we have seen it’s benefits already. The “Miracle Belt™” has helped her to focus and has really given her that sense of groundedness she normally had to use the self-stimming input to achieve. She has drastically reduced the amount of self-stimming, that she has had to do, while wearing the “Miracle Belt™”.

Emma was prescribed by her Occupational Therapist to wear the belt for 15 minutes three times a day. Her Early Interventionist, Suzie Tromley (Easter Seals) also has stated that she has seen a drastic improvement while Emma is wearing the belt.

The bottom-line for us is that while wearing the belt Emma has greatly reduced her need for self-stimming and because of her increased focus is making strides in her speech, and development that may not have been made this quickly without it."
Trent and Crystal Evans,
Parents of a Child with Autism


"We're having a great time using the Miracle Belts. I used them with two children today - both with great results! Both kids are Autistic and both are "runners". Usually I have to keep a hand on them at all times or they bolt. Today, I was able to let the little girl walk around the gym, because with the belt on, she responded to verbal cues! The boy still needed a hand on while in the gym but once in the treatment room he was able to sit at the table - with the door open - and focus on/participate in table top activities for more than 20 minutes. When it was time to clean up, I just said "clean up" and he immediately responded, Usually, I have to provide hand-over-hand assistance and he is very resistant to cleaning up. I'm sure we'll have several more positive stories to share with you as the week goes on."
Karyn Collins,
Occupational Therapist OTR


"Working with autistic and learning disabled children is a challenging and rewarding task and we are always on the lookout for tools that will help our children cope with the challenges they face. Collaborating with Dr. Erin Schwier and Mark Wilson, Occupational Therapy Specialists, we find great success with these kids when we stimulate and strengthen their sensory integration and processing. The Miracle Belt™ provides just that. Children are able to wear the belt while participating in academic tasks. The belt helps them to focus and stay seated as well as diminishing extraneous physical movements. Literally, the belt helps them feel more grounded and safe in their environment. We are excited about what we are seeing with the Miracle Belt™ and would love to see parents using the belt at home with their children."
Catherine Behan M.S. EFT-CC,
EFT Specialist/Peak Performance Coach (San Diego CA)


"The Miracle Belt™ is very helpful with hyper active children. It's amazing how quickly the belt settles a child down and comforts them. The belt helps these children feel safe and secure in their surroundings which allows them to gain control over themselves. Every ESE teacher should use the Miracle Belt™. It is a miracle how the belt works!"
Bettimae Mills,
Pre-K VE Teacher


"I have found the Miracle Belt™ to be a valuable therapy tool. The best pieces of equipment are those that have multiple uses. I have used the Miracle Belt™ as a tool for improving postural stability, strengthening, increasing body awareness, providing sensory input to increase attention and assist with sensory modulation. A definite asset to any therapists bag of tools."
Lori Lovesky,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L
Co-Director of KIDSPOT (Palmetto FL)


"The Miracle Belt™ is used to stimulate the proprioceptive system through the use of deep pressure to promote attention, focus, organization and self calming. The belt helps provide the individual with a greater sense of their body's position in space. The belt can be used with individuals who have Autism, ADD/ADHD, PDD, Sensory Integration Disorder and learning disabilities."
Mark Wilson,
Certified Occupational Therapist Assistant COTA


"We just got back home from our trip to Disney. The Miracle Belt™ made a huge difference for my son while on our trip. Jack was so calm and not as fidgety."
Marijane Farr,
Mother of a Child with PDD-NOS & SID


"Using the Miracle Belt™ has helped calm one of my most difficult students."
Hamish Pollock,
ESE Teacher


"One little boy who has Autism uses the Miracle Belt™ during every session. He is a different child while wearing the belt. He stays more focused on one activity at a time, does not trip and fall like he used to, and just seems so much more engaged and connected for longer periods of time throughout the sessions. The Miracle Belt™ helps to maximize the benefits of the work that I do with my clients."
Kelly Beins,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L


"Keegan had a little setback with his balance when we changed his orthotics...all I had to do was put the Miracle Belt™ back on him one time to correct the problem. ....something, huh."
Drs. Frank and Lisa Lanzisera,
Parents of a Child with Down Syndrome

"The Miracle Belt™ helps distractible children maintain their focus during seat work with ease and comfort. The entire classroom is calmer and quieter when two or three highly sensitive children are feeling safe and comfortable in their classroom."
Mark Wilson,
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant COTA


"My son has been in therapies since he was 19 months old for occupational, speech and language therapies. At the end of last school year in Pre-K his occupational therapist mentioned concerns about our son possibly having Sensory Integration Disorder. When he started Kindergarten this year his new OT mentioned her concern with that as well. This past Friday they began using the Miracle Belt™ with him. His teacher noticed a HUGE difference in him. Today I had to see it for myself... and I did. Tears came to my eyes. I have NEVER seen my child that focused... EVER. He was able to sit still (for a 5 year old) and not have to be redirected over and over again. I was told that we would continue to try the belt over the next week, and if they still felt it was a tool needed to help my son they would begin the process of getting one for him through the county. But for me, I can't wait that long. My child depends on myself and my husband for so many things. If this belt is helping him then that's that. We just ordered a belt and can not wait for him to have it at school AND at home. I just wanted to say thank you. This may very well be the tool my son needs to help him lead a normal life."
Sara Smith,
Mother of a child with Autism


"The goal of any piece of equipment is to provide the input needed to make positive changes that will carry over without the use of the equipment. With repeated use of the Miracle Belt™ with Sierra, a young girl who suffers from static encephalopathy seizure disorder with global delays, we are starting to see functional carryover with the ability to participate in group activitys without the loss of balance and without the use of the belt."
Ouida Wellenberger,
Physical Therapist PT


"After Jack received his belt he didn't fall as much and was noticeably more focused during our soccer games. The belts calming effect improved his focus to where he began learning more and playing better. Jack would wear the belt for fifteen minutes before he would go into the game."
Michelle Kingston,
Soccer Coach of a Child with SID (North Port FL)


"At first I didn't think the Miracle Belt would help an eighteen month old little girl diagnosed with Down Syndrome but once we put on the belt she immediately and spontaneously did what two therapists hands have been trying to get her to do for weeks!"
Rebecca Murphy,
Occupational Therapist MHS, OTR/L

"My son loves wearing his Miracle Belt™ and wears it everyday! He even points it out to his caregiver when she is dressing him. I can feel the difference when I'm holding his hand and we are walking. He is much more stable and balanced. Thank you for this great device!"
Wendy Mann Resnick,
Mother of a Child with Agenesis of the Corpus Callosum


"Since Emma has been using the Miracle Belt™ we have seen a big improvement in her speech and development."
Crystal Evans,
Mother of a Child with Autism


"I used the Miracle Belt™ with one of my 5 year olds for the first time, and he did great with it. His ability to stay on task improved so much, compared to other days without using it, and his increased attention continued even after we took the belt off. He also had an increased awareness of his body in space. I will definitely continue using the Miracle Belt™."
Mary Tomasello,
Occupational Therapist MS OTR/L
Easter Seals (Sarasota FL)


"I tried the Miracle Belt™ on a 12 year old client diagnosed with ADHD who also has Sensory Integration issues. Immediately, he experienced more stability and the quality of his mobility was significantly improved. In fact, my client liked the belt so much, he asked his mother if he could keep it and wear it at home."
Lena Thoresen,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L

"My son's experience overall with the Miracle Belt™ is pretty good. Some days he can only wear the belt for short periods of time vs. other days, but either way he seems more aware of his environment, and exhibits more confidence (feels more secure) when walking with the Miracle Belt on with his walker."
Brenda McDonnell,
Mother of child with Down syndrome


"When comparing the Miracle Belt™ to a weighted vest, the belt is far superior! Weighted vests are cumbersome and the weights do not sit evenly which can jeopardize the benefits of the input they are intended to provide. One mom told me the weighted vest that was recommended to her was too heavy for her son. Unlike weighted vests, the Miracle Belt™ comes in three different sizes to choose from and can be adjusted to fit the child's waist accordingly. The same mom mentioned that the weighted vest was "weighing" her son down on his shoulders and he would only take it off and throw it on the ground. He didn't like the feeling of it and she didn't like it because he had spinal scoliosis issues at the time and she was fearful of adding weight to his spine. This point emphasized for me the benefit of the Miracle Belt in having the weight centered around the child's midline instead of on top of their shoulders."
Kelly Beins,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L


"My 3 Year old child has been diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction. The Miracle Belt™ helps him calm down and focus on tasks. We put the belt on for 15 to 20 minutes at a time which helps him redirect his attention to his surroundings."
Steven Rood,
Father of a child with SID


"I am so pleased with the Miracle Belt™! The belt is much easier to use with my son than the weighted vest."
Cherie Johnson,
Mother of a child with SPD


"I have seen some great and immediate results with the Miracle Belt™. The belt is aptly named! I have found few other strategies that are as simple, convenient, or swift in assisting children to achieve behavioral organization, focused attention, and calm, alert states. I lent it to a family, and they informed me that their child was even requesting to wear the belt! I am always eager to try the belt with new patients to see what results will occur."
Donna Urbina,
Occupational Therapist OTR/L


"Our team of Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech Therapists began using the Miracle Belt™ with children of varying disabilities about 5 months ago. We very quickly found the Miracle Belt™ to be an excellent tool for us to help the children to organize themselves to better focus and participate in activities. We found weighted belts to be very user friendly and accepted by all of the children that we used them with. We have been loaning the Miracle belt out for parents to try and are discovering that we find more uses for them daily. In addition, we found that the use of the weighted belt is very easy for families to follow through with at home.

The weighted belt took the place of our weighted vest that we had been using, although the weighted vest that we have in the clinic only fits very small children. I have found the weighted belt to be extremely useful for my children with CP diplegias who have a strong side and have to learn to weight shift to their weak side as well as children with hemiplegia."

Sue Horwath,
Physical Therapist PT
Optimum "Kids" Pediatric Rehab (Orlando FL)


"Thank you so much for the Miracle Belts. I have two children they work great with! The therapists were amazed at how well Faith did using the Miracle Belt™. There was a noticeable difference from not having the belt. Now, here is the good part. The next day I went to therapy with Faith and there was another little girl there that was Faith's age who also has Down syndrome. I Decided to do a little research myself so I asked the therapist if we could put Faith's belt on the other little girl. We all watched to see the results and it was something to behold! I'm not a trained therapist but it was noticeable that the other little girl was a lot calmer and wanted to sit longer to work at the table. When her mom came to pick her up she was surprised to find out about the benefits of the Miracle Belt™. The Miracle Belt™ should be used more then just on therapy day. It is a wonderful blessing to own two of these belts!"
Cheryl Long,
Mother of a Child with Down Syndrome


"My daughter has not been diagnosed with any problems but was having some issues in school. For the first 3 weeks of school the teacher stated she had to change her desk two different times. She was such an inconvenience the teacher had her write sentences everyday saying I will not talk in class, or I will stay in my seat, and so on. My Daughter has been using the Miracle Belt™ for a couple days now and her teacher has already seen a big improvement in her ability to stay seated, focused, and less fidgety. On the second day of my daughter wearing the belt I asked the teacher how things were going and she bowed down to me and said "does that give you any indication of how it’s been". She stated that she barely knows that Ann is in the class room now. All I know is that the Miracle Belt™ has worked wonders for my daughter."
Lisa Harrison,
Mother of a child who has not been diagnosed


Therapists comments on Miracle Belt clinical trials
Clinic trials held at Community Haven in Sarasota, FL

Madison is a 4 1/2 year old girl with Autism who has severe low muscle tone and joint laxity. A big concern is her poor sitting posture, she sacral sits with a C curve back, her spinous processes are so pronounced underneath her stretched skin that she bruises. Her mom bought a support cushion to support her back in sitting. While using the two pound Miracle Belt she was able to maintain a more upright sitting posture, she tolerated the belt the entire session with all other activities.

Pacsun, a 2 year old boy who has Cerebral Palsy, utilizes extensor tone for stability and attempts to use it for mobility. He is very resistive to bringing his center of gravity forward. All of his attempts to move were posterior. Pacsun would not come forward to hold a walker and became very frustrated. The Miracle Belt assisted Pacsun in finding his center and allowed him to comfortably move forward in space. Pacsun is now able to turn his body independently and can also walk with his walker under supervision.

Jamie is a 5 year old little boy with a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. He is very weak and only started walking within the last year. Jamie did not like using the treadmill until he started wearing the one pound Miracle Belt. Now he requests the treadmill during every Physical Therapy session. Jamie was very resistant to upper extremity weight bearing and would go to any length to avoid it. Once he began wearing the one pound belt he would attempt the bolster slide independently plus he would keep at it for four to six repetitions without complaint.

Mikey, a young boy at CHAC who is an extreme premature baby who couldn’t pick up his toys without falling over. Once Ouida put on the Miracle Belt Mikey immediately began to bend at the waist without falling. Mikey tends to keep his body rigid and when he attempts to turn in a circle he immediately falls down. After about 10 to 15 minutes of wearing the Miracle Belt, Mikey was so confident wearing the belt he started turning in circles until he was so dizzy he had to lay himself down.

Sierra, a 6 year old girl who has static encephalopathy seizure disorder with global delays, has little awareness of her body in space. Sierra rocks almost constantly which interferes with her stability and function. When wearing the three pound Miracle Belt while sitting on a low bench the amplitude of rocking dramatically decreases allowing Sierra to experience a stable base. Sierra has begun grasping and releasing objects--an activity that in the past seemed out of reach.

Kevin, a 3 year old boy with a developmental delay, slouches when in four point therapy, creating the tendency to fall to his left side. This limited angle forces Kevin’s head down which causes him to only use one side for stability. When using the Miracle Belt, Kevin’s head comes up, his body shifts into an even posture which allows him to use either hand for stability. Kevin does not mind playing in four point therapy when wearing the belt. He is able to shift his weight left and right without difficulty.

Savannah is a 22 months old girl with a dx of agenesis of the corpus callosum, her motor involvements are similar to that of a child with cerebral palsy. We are working on her tolerating standing with support, for example, against sofa, to strengthen hips and lower extremities. The one pound Miracle Belt gives her more stability in her trunk and reduces the involuntary, jerky movements we saw before.

David is a 4 year old boy with vestibular dysfunction who has poor balance with walking, with transitional movements, and he falls constantly. While wearing the three pound Miracle Belt, he walked with more stability and for the first time since working with him he raised one leg, flexed at the knee, and balanced on the other, to imitate marching. His mom was very pleased. This is a child whose coordination is so bad, we have discussed his need for a helmet.
