I think a benik vest would realy help my son with trunck stability but I don't know who to ask to order one for us?  He does see a lot of doctors, but I am not sure who we would ask. I doubt the pedi would do this.  Any advice also on other similar products that we might be able to order ourselfs would be great too.


Here is a link to the benik site:


Thanks,  Jessica.,

We got ours through our PT. Another mum suggested it to us and we loved it. Our PT wrote out the rx for us.

we just ordered our Spio vest (you can just google it).  You do not need a prescription for one (unless you are trying to get your insurance to cover it).  Our PT helped us measure DD for one so we could order the appropriate size.
