A 35-year-old woman with Multiple Sclerosis and pronounced spasticity in both legs has sensory disturbances in both surface and deep sensation. The ataxia, which is still present at night, increases the physical and mental agitation. She tries the Protac Ball Blanket® Calm and can immediately feel the soothing effect of the balls. The effect of the balls allows her to independently turn over allowing for a significantly better night's sleep, fewer spasms, and less restlessness in the body. She can now avoid fixation with straps. After sleeping for 14 days with the blanket, she begins to be able to handle utensils better and has a better sense of her hands. The ataxic disturbances are reduced for up to an hour after using the blanket.
