The Protac Ball Blanket with Polystyrene Balls is a tranquillizing, sense-stimulating aid. This square-quilted duvet is filled with polystyrene balls and is designed to remedy physical and emotional uneasiness. The weight of the loose balls pressing at certain points on the body stimulates both the sensation of touch and the sense of muscle and joint. The many sensory impressions transmit inhibitory impulses to the central nervous system, thus increasing the sense of the body and its limits.

There are three versions of the Protac Ball Blanket, and each version comes with different types of balls: Plastic, polystyrene, or a combination of plastic and polystyrene. The Protac Ball Blanket with Polystyrene Balls is the lightest of the three Ball Blankets. It provides the slightest stimulation of the sensory system while still offering the user a sense of the borders of his or her body. The Protac Ball Blanket with Polystyrene Balls is suitable for persons with dementia and those with fibromyalgia. It contains small parts and should not be used for children under the age of three.

The Protac Ball Blanket has many possible applications. People can use it like an ordinary blanket and lie down on top of it, wrap up in it, or nest under it. The duration of use varies according to the individual’s need for sensory stimulation. So while some people might need to sleep with the Ball Blanket every night, others might just use it every now and then - whenever they need to calm down.
