MADE IN SAN JOSE
01. Home represents something different for everyone. There is a common perception that the feeling of comfort is associated with the idea of home. How can this sentiment be woven into a softgood?
02. Sensory overload a medical condition where you get more input from your five senses than your brain can organize and process.
03. Sensory-friendly clothing or accessories for children can comfort them when they experience sensory overload.
04. a big issue I wanted to focus on was blending in the sensory-friendly apparel with the child’s everyday wear which the current market products fail to do
05. I improved upon my earlier concepts and shifted to a clothing item. This product would have weaving that could simulate compression when pulled on or activated.
06. I discovered a new material during my research that could take my compressive weave concept further. Nitinol can be programed to transform into a particular shape when heat or an electrical current is applied to it
Sensory-friendly apparel that blends in with the everyday wear of a child who experiences over stimulation. The shirt can
be activated in environments that contain sensory overload triggers such as loud sounds, bright colors, and crowds.
07. The nitinol wire needs a source of power to activate compression, this part is compact and easy for young kids to use. It connects to a hidden USB-C cable hidden the shirt pocket
