Protac MyFit® - 25mm
Sensory-stimulating ball-vest with 2,5 cm balls
The balls in the vest stimulate the sense of touch and the muscle-joint sense through deep and dynamic touch-pressure, thus promoting an improved body awareness. When in movement with the vest on, the balls move a little, giving the user an increased body perception. The vest can be used in institutions and schools during both active and seated activities. The vest can help the wearer to carry out everyday chores such as cleaning, shopping, cooking, schoolwork, and social events.
The vest with 2.5 cm balls gives a mild stimulation, as the balls provide little but deep touch-pressure. This is recommended for people with tactile defensiveness, low BMI or those who are tender-skinned.
The size of the vest is decided according to the chest size and is available from 56-140 cm. The vest can be used from 3 years and up.

When anxiety has “come creeping” or “galloping” during the day, the vest has become a great help in finding peace and calm. For those who used to need alcohol and other stimulants as a means to calm down, they now experience that the vest helps them much better.

He keeps wearing the ball vest all day. When asked about the ball vest, he answers that it is nice to wear. Everybody around him notices how much comfort and well-being, the ball vest gives him.
