Woman with bipolar affective disorder.
Admitted to a psychiatric hospital.
A sense-stimulating aid: Protac SenSit ball chair.
Observed effect: One therapist in the ward says: "The woman uses the chair several times a day on her own, especially when she needs to calm down and collect her thoughts. She says that it helps her stay calm throughout the day without her having to go to bed. She finds that using a combination of the Protac Ball Blanket® and night and the chair during the day works optimally for her. In the ward, we find that the chair helps to prevent and curb her tendency to get wound up and angry over the course of the day. We see her using it before and after going to meetings or having conversations. She had to be belted in for past hospitalisations, but this time it wasn't necessary".
