A specially made chair, which stimulates the senses by surrounding and calming the body. The special design of the chair surrounds the body and simultaneously increases stimulation of the senses.
SenSit is produced in various compartments with plastic balls in the sitting, back and side cushions, and polystyrene balls at the bottom part of the chair and in the neck cushion.
Additionally, the cushions at each side (filled with plastic balls) have been produced as long wings which can be positioned over the body.
The flexibility and pressure points simultaneously stimulate the sense of touch and the senses in the muscles and joints.
Through impulses to the central nervous system, the many sensory impressions result in a better sensation of the body which calms the user and increases the perception of wellbeing.
Target Groups who may benefit from the use of SenSit
- Children and adults with cerebral paralysis who need to get out of their wheelchairs to acquire a better resting position which can subdue their spasticity.
- Adults and children experiencing motory unrest or who are unable to concentrate and need a better sense of their bodies
- Psychiatric patients experiencing physical and mental unrest/restlessness
- Neurological patients who need sense stimulation due to vague perception of their bodies after an accident
Calm and concentration
Protac SenSit is a sensory-stimulating chair that provides a sense of security and calm and increased levels of concentration among users. Children, adults and the elderly suffering from mental and physical restlessness can benefit from Protac SenSit. The chair is filled with balls in the seat and back and in the special neck and side wings. These wings can be placed around the body as required, enveloping and calming the user.
Applications in practice
Protac SenSit has countless applications, and is today found in many kindergartens, at schools, psychiatric departments, somatic hospitals, in ordinary homes, waiting rooms, sensory rooms (Snoezelens) and treatment and therapy rooms.
Protac SenSit can be used for ordinary relaxation when the user is watching TV or sitting with a computer. For restless children, the chair helps them to concentrate when doing their homework or playing games which demand their full attention. In kindergartens and schools, Protac SenSit can be a time-out for children during a busy school day, while chairs placed in psychiatric departments and day care facilities for adults with developmental disorders provide a ‘safe refuge’ in communal areas for patients and users who find it difficult to be surrounded by lots of people.
Therapy and training
The Protac SenSit chair is used by therapists and professionals as a tool for sensory stimulation in sensory rooms, Snoezelens – or controlled multisensory environments (MSE) – and in therapy and treatment rooms. The chair strengthens the user’s sense of his or her own body and has a calming effect. The chair can also be used in connection with preliminary treatment so that the user’s muscles are relaxed and he or she feels calm and collected and ready to commence motorskill training.
Alternative sitting position
Protac SenSit is a good alternative for wheelchair users and bedridden patients who need to change position during the day. The chair’s stable shape supports the neck, head and body, and the flexibility of the balls in the seat and back makes it easy to adjust the chair and create a comfortable sitting and resting position.
Design and colours
Protac SenSit has a modern design and is available in eight colours. The chair is also available in a high and a low version to match the height of the user. The cover has a zip so that it can be removed and washed in a normal washing machine. The cover can also be wiped with a damp cloth and disinfectant.
The Protac SenSit Puff can be used as a footstool for the Protac SenSit or separately as a stool. The balls in the upper part of the footstool stimulate the senses, while it is also comfortable to sit on. In some schools, the footstool is used as a chair in the lower grades.
Please note that the Puff foot stool shown in the images is an optional extra*
