      Testimonials


      J. Rogers / Sherwood Park, AB / 8 yr old daughter with ADHD

      "My daughter loves her new blanket. It is definitely helping her to settle at night and is not up or rustling around 1/2 as much as she used to. In fact, she rarely get up after the lights go out. The flat snake is also a hit. She absolutely loves her warm snake while she is reading before lights out"

      Cheryl W. / Alberta / Occupational Therapist

      “I have been an InnovAID customer for a number of years. InnovAID offers flexible, friendly service. If I need an item customized or adapted, or on short notice, I know InnovAID will try to do it. If they can’t, they let me know in a timely manner and give me helpful suggestions of what can be done. I enjoy working with InnovAID and do recommend their services!”

      Juliette C. / Alberta / Teacher

      “Awesome Canadian company with awesome products! As a teacher of special needs kids, anything we buy needs to be very durable. InnovAID’s products are durable and well designed. Their weighted vest can be worn with the zipper to the front or the zipper to the back. I have needed to use it both ways. It’s hard to find a vest that is so flexible. Not only that, the denim looks good – not therapeutic. Looks good, wears well and knowledgeably designed – I’m very happy -what more could a person want? “
