A sense-stimulating aid: Protac Ball Blanket® 

Observed effect: I'd been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and borrowed a ball blanket from the hospital. I use it when it feels like my body is about to break with pain. It is nice to lay it over yourself because it feels like your body is being held together. Your muscles warm up and it feels relaxing. I also use it on the floor and roll myself up in the ball blanket or use it as a mattress. When I sit in a chair, I wrap myself up in the ball blanket and it's a good position for reading, as I can rest my arms on the blanket.

A sense-stimulating aid: Protac Polystyrene Blanket 

Observed effect: I use the blanket to sleep with when the pain is so bad that I can't stand it anymore. The blanket is nice and warm and helps me better notice my body. I notice that I'm able to relax better and the pain fades so that I can stand it better. It's also wonderful to sit with because the small balls inside help me place my arms in a comfortable position, without it hurting.
