The Protac Ball Blanket with Plastic and Polystyrene Balls is a tranquillizing, sense-stimulating aid. This square-quilted duvet is filled with both plastic and 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. In the Protac Ball Blanket with Plastic and Polystyrene Balls, the polystyrene balls lie in between the plastic balls, thus providing a different pressure/stimulation. A lining is sewn in on one side of the blanket, which allows people to use it in two different ways: They can either lessen the stimulation by keeping the lining in-between them and the balls, or keep the lining farther away from them to get the full impact. The Protac Ball Blanket with Plastic and Polystyrene Balls is suitable for those who need moderate stimulation of the sensory system, including patients with neurological disorders and people with learning disabilities.
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.
