40-year old man, traumatic brain injury from a motorcycle crash.

Sits in an electrical wheelchair and cannot actively move his body with the exception of blinking his eyes.

A sense-stimulating aid: Protac KneedMe  

Observed effect: The man uses the knee blanket when using his wheelchair, as he would otherwise tighten up very badly in his lower extremities (legs). His muscle spasms were once so intense that he got cramps in his lower extremities (legs). When using the knee blanket, he is able to notice himself when using his wheelchair, which makes him less anxious and makes his muscles less tense. The man has also started using the Protac Ball Blanket at night and during midday rests. The results have been that he is easier to mobilise, dress and subsequently move.
