20-year old woman with mental problems.

She has made several suicide attempts and was admitted to a psychiatric ward. She is severely self-harming. 

A sense-stimulating aid:  Protac Sensit

Observed effect: The woman was encouraged by the staff to use the ball chair, but it was later the patient's own strategy to use the chair. She experienced a calming effect on her body and thoughts and she became more capable of standing up against self-destructive behaviour. The chair was placed in her room  so that she could use it on her own and she experienced a sense of well-being and a calming effect on her body.
