Protac Ball Blanket® – the originalThe Protac Ball Blanket® is the original sensory-stimulating blanket with large plastic balls, which provides a pleasant enveloping feeling for the entire body. The balls in the blanket stimulate the sense of touch and the muscle-joint sense through deep and dynamic touch-pressure, thus promoting an improved body awareness, which helps the user to fall asleep more easily. This effect of the Protac Ball Blanket® has been documented through several research projects, where Protac Ball Blanket® has been shown to alleviate sleep problems and increase daily well-being. Protac Ball Blanket® is suitable for people with physical unrest, ADHD, autism, anxiety, psychiatric disorders, dementia, developmental disabilities, and brain injury.
Unlike alternative cheaper products, Protac Ball Blanket® contains custom-made 5 cm balls, which are important for the blanket's long-lasting effect. In addition, the blankets are CE-marked and registered according to medical devices Class 1 at the Danish Medicines Agency.
