A sense-stimulating aid: Protac Ball Blanket
Observed effect: After using the ball blanket, the man lays calmly in his bed. He started using the ball blanket for 30 minutes at a time and it went well. It clearly reduced his number of involuntary movements. They slowly increased his time with the blanket to one hour, then for his midday nap and then for an entire night. After this, the resident asked for the blanket on his own.
