Fat Vest, Adult Size
The effects of additional weight on a person's body are dramatically
demonstrated with this useful teaching tool, which simulates the "look"
and "feel" of excess body fat. By inserting weights in varying
increments into the vest's interior pocket, the wearer can experience
the additional weight and limited range of motion that are associated
with obesity. Two versions are available. The adult version, which
includes a total of 20 lb of weight (three 5-lb weights and two 2 ½-lb
weights), features a colorful and informative front panel that describes
the effects of excess weight on several body organs. An excellent way
to start group discussion about healthy eating habits.
