TouchPoints were shortlisted as Time's best invention of the year.
How do they work?
TouchPoints utilize BLAST technology to shift you or your child from sensory overload to sensory tolerant and have been reported to help cope with Autism.
Did you know that 1 in 59 children have been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder? ASD is one of the most common developmental disabilities affecting our society today, affecting roughly 0.7 million people living in the UK.
Although there is no medical detection or cure, researchers are now able to make an accurate diagnosis based off how the salience network, a key region of the brain that selects which sensory information to process, is working. Those on the spectrum are all too familiar with sensory integration difficulties- sensitivity to light, noises, touch, and changes in temperature are enough to cause avoidance, anxiety, and extreme meltdowns.
When sensory overload occurs in individuals with Autism, the brain engages in F3 activation; the body's fight, flight or freeze response to stress. The result is that people on the spectrum have extreme difficulty functioning in typical classrooms, social settings, or in situations where the sensory stimuli are not controlled. They are often flooded with anxiety in everyday situations that others find tolerable, resulting in an inability to focus, learn, or experience joy. Since the salience network is highly integrated with other brain networks that control social behavior, self-awareness, and communication, it is easy to understand why many individuals are turning to advances in neuroscience to help manage the outcomes.
TouchPoints offer a passive, non-invasive solution that may be more powerful than other methods in preventing nervous system hyperarousal in real-time. The BLAST technology helps keep the brain in a rational, logical state of thinking to help it go from sensory overload to sensory tolerant. They can be used in conjunction with therapy, medications, and other interventions.
Research-proven Results:Scientific Advisory Board study shows TouchPoints provide a 50% reduction in angry outbursts with lower intensity.
"I purchased two sets of TouchPoints for my autistic and ADHD son. They are great! They make a HUGE difference with him. I am so glad we found you!"

"I have an 8-year-old son with autism, he is pretty low functioning, has SPD, self-harms, and is a diagnosed insomniac. TouchPoints have helped him tremendously. They are worth every penny. We go shopping with them, it helps calm him, it helps him relax and sleep, and the list goes on. Thank you for this product."
- HEATHER W.
"TouchPoints help with the stress that accompanies autism and with focus. My 24-year-old son in college just started using them. Tonight he was in a panic over a speech he had to write. Normally he would shut down and drop the class. But, he put on TouchPoints using the calm setting for 15 minutes and is now working hard. Panic gone."

"I was in so much fibromyalgia pain today, I didn't realize how much my pain was eased after getting such good, restful sleep. I will definitely not be skipping another night without my TouchPoints!"
- GINA GEORGE
"I put in in sleep mode when I got in bed and it was like pushing sedation! Slept 8 hours solid, vivid dreams, sprung out of bed awake and alert, ready to rock my day👍🏻 Awesome!"

TouchPoints are a pair of neuroscientific weables worn on either side of the body preventatively in the morning or night or on-the-spot for 15 minutes before, during or after a stressful situation to produce calm in real time. As a result, they also improve focus and sleep; a perfect addition to homework or bedtime routines.
TouchPoints have three speed settings (slow, medium, fast) that can be adjusted to match your child's comfort level. The vibrations produce a sound that's similar to that of a cell phone.
