Activity centre for adults with autism.

A sense-stimulating aid: Protac SenSit ball chair

Observed effect: "Our users are able to calm down and enjoy sitting in the chair, which is something only the Protac Ball Blanket could give them before. It's nice that they don't always have to lay down and it's easier for them to choose the SenSit chair themselves. One of them is actually so devious that he eats his lunch a bit faster than the others so that he can go an take the chair before the others are finished".

 Centre for young people and adults with autism. 
 
A sense-stimulating aid: Protac Sensit ball chair 

Observed effect: The centre has had two chairs over the course of one year. One of the chairs is in an area where it is used by their examination class for when they need to study and concentrate. The users are very happy with it. It calms them down and improves their concentration considerably for when they need to learn new material. The other chair is moved around as needed. It was placed in the cafe area, but the staff asked that it be moved, as the young people go look for it and get so relaxed that they fall asleep and do not participate in the activities there. Right now it is being used in a quiet room when people can retire when they need a rest.
