Protac Sensit®

Funding Rationale

  • The Protac Sensit chair and puff offer supported seated or semi-reclined positioning.
  • The Protac ball filled base and wings provide opportunity for the body to immerse and provide gentle weighted proprioceptive input. This input provides deep pressure stimulation to the muscles and joints that can be calming and can assist the brain to separate relevant stimuli from the chatter of irrelevant stimuli.
  • This form of sensory feedback provides a full body calming input for situations where the user may be feeling overwhelmed or experiencing high levels of anxiety.
  • Movement within the seated position creates a gentle sensory resistance helping the brain to sort out and make sense of the physical surround and establish where that body is in space. The chair can be a stand-alone tool to provide proprioceptive sensory feedback or can be used as part of a sensory modulation program

  • The Protac SenSit Seating healthcare solution is a very comfortable sensory-stimulating chair that provides a sense of security and calm and increased levels of concentration among users. Adults, the elderly and children suffering from mental and physical restlessness can benefit from Protac SenSit.
