Protac MyBaSe®




Sensory-stimulating air mattress with plastic balls
Protac MyBaSe® is a sensory-stimulating air mattress that provides a pleasant enveloping feeling for the entire body. The balls in the top layer of the mattress stimulate the sense of touch and the muscle-joint sense through deep and dynamic touch-pressure, and thus promote an improved body awareness. The mattress can be used as a secure base for rest in institutions, sensory rooms, psychiatric and somatic hospitals.

Protac MyBaSe® alleviates mental and physical unrest and sharpens concentration. The mattress is suitable for both children and adults, and benefits individuals with ADHD, autism, psychiatric disorders, brain damage, spasticity, deaf-blindness, and developmental disorders.

The size of the mattress also makes it possible to properly position wheelchair users in correct alignment, thus providing an alternative to their sitting position during the day. The touch-pressure and movement of the balls dampens spasticity and promotes calmness.

Recommended by professionals
Specialized therapists use Protac MyBaSe® as an aid to motor-skill training. The mattress is curved on one side, which makes the mattress livelier and thus challenges the user’s sense of balance, and a stable side, which is suitable for gentler treatment.

Design and size
Protac MyBase® is a 200x200 cm inflatable mattress that comes with an electric pump, which makes it quick to assemble. The top layer consists of loose plastic balls under an easy-to-clean elastic top cover. The mattress has handles on all four sides, making it easy to move.

Can be combined with
Protac MyBase® can advantageously be combined with Protac Ball Blanket® or Protac SensCircle® if further stimulation of the sense of touch and the muscle-joint sense is needed.

CASES


42-year-old man with traumatic brain injury and spams

Therapist says: "We use the mattress  together with Protac Ball Blanket®, to give him even more body focus. It helps him to relax completely, which better allows us to do his stretch exercises. He stops his humming sound he typically makes when we do stretch exercises, which he finds annoying. "

9-year-old girl with severe brain damage

The girl clearly shows expressions of joy when they the staff ask if she wants to get down onto the Protac MyBaSe® mattress. She sits in a wheelchair all day long. When she lies on the mattress, she can make it move herself, with small movements, and she makes more happy sounds, chatters, and smiles. She rests well and enjoys lying without her back brace.


Man with paranoid schizophrenia

"I use the Protac MyBaSe® mattress to find a safe base where I can relax. I have many obsessive thoughts and a bad physical posture; the mattress provides peace to calm my thoughts and to relax my muscles. It is great that the effect remains for some time afterwards. "


Experiences from Snoezelen house

An Occupational Therapist says: "I use the Protac MyBaSe® mattress on the stable side, where the user can sink deep into the balls and just float on the mattress. Mostly it is used with a projector / film and some calm music. I find that the user completely relaxes. Those who have tried it before often seek it out as the first thing when they come back. One user stopped her continual flow of speech as soon as she got down in the mattress. She typically chatters non-stop; I interpret her response as a sign of feeling safer. The therapists use it on the stable side and often in combination with the Protac Ball Blanket®. A woman with anxiety and brain injury needed help to calm herself, and Protac MyBaSe® was the only place where we could help her relax and actually get in physical contact with herself without having to constantly focus on her anxiety. "
