Many people with congenital or acquired brain damage have been able to change their perception of their own bodies. This change in body awareness can create uneasiness and feelings of insecurity. The Protac Ball Blanket can helps users to better "notice" themselves. It promotes calmness, creates a sense of security and gives the user a feel for the physical limits of the body.
