Autistic, mentally challenged young woman.

She is very self-destructive and has a hard time sleeping. She was wrapped in the blanket until she fell asleep. She slept peacefully and uninterrupted. 

A sense-stimulating aid: Protac Ball Blanket®

Observed effect: The woman is happy to go to bed and the blanket helps her stay in bed. Her self-destructive behaviour has faded.

Mentally challenged woman with very limited speech and only some sign language.

Has many mood swings and on bad days reacts very aggressively toward fellow residents and staff if she is not understood or is not given enough attention.  She has a hard time  coming back down from these kinds of intense reactions and has been given strong sedatives in the past.

A sense-stimulating aid: Protac Ball Blanket®

Observed effect:  The woman was introduced to the Protac Ball Blanket® during "cosy time and play" in her bed where she often spends time. Now in most cases she can be given the blanket instead of medication and will calm right down. It has gotten to where she sleeps with the blanket every night and asks for it if it is not in her bed already.
