The Compressent Desk Chair is the first product that offers the therapeutic feature of self-regulated compression to enhance employee productivity. The benefits of pressure on the body have been proven to calm the nervous system. Several products aimed at providing compression have been introduced over the years, such as weighted vests, belts, and blankets, which exploded onto the market in 2017, growing from a $15 million market to one now valued at nearly $530 million. Although the Compressent Desk Chair was originally designed for people with autism, it is not only for people on the autism spectrum; it is for anyone who needs access to the benefits of compression to manage stress, anxiety, or overstimulation and provides it in a way that does not stigmatize them.
Accommodating sensory issues can ease discomfort and increase opportunities for people to integrate and be more productive. Accommodations usually mean modifying the environment, using tools and strategies that can disrupt work in a public environment and create stigma for both the individual and others around them. Compressent LLC evolved around the need to fill a massive gap in the market for products that can be integrated into any environment without stigma. Compressent LLC responds to this need by creating sensory-oriented and wellness-centered products.
Applying pressure (or compression) on specific points on the nervous system, such as the shoulders and outer thighs, can ease the effects of stress and overstimulation. The Compressent Desk Chair has subtle armature and panels that exert pressure on these points, which the user can self-regulate. Deep pressure touch, particularly when it can be self-controlled, alleviates the need for the user to disconnect to calm down.
The Compressent Desk Chair will help the 50,200,000 American adults affected by mental health conditions who struggle with sensory integration, such as individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However, the Compressent Desk Chair is for anyone who experiences stress or anxiety—because compression calms everyone. The Compressent Desk Chair is a wellness product that helps mitigate stress for users and its negative effect on health indicators while enhancing productivity in their everyday lives.
The Compressent Desk Chair is an elegant and innovative product that will improve the lives of neurodiverse individuals, while providing a wellness solution that anyone can use to cope with stress.
