Protac Ball Blanket® Calm
The Protac Ball Blanket® range is known to alleviate sleep disorders and motor restlessness in children, adults and the elderly. Protac Ball Blanket® Calm is divided into channels, each containing several small balls. The balls are distributed in long channels, meaning the blanket offers a calmer sensory experience than other blankets within the range. This makes the Calm blanket ideal for users who experience a need for sensory stimulation but are easily overstimulated or experience sensitivity to sound.
The blanket can be used during the day to unwind and calm the mind, or used at night to help with the relief of sleep problems.
Suitable for use in a variety of settings such as nurseries, schools, private homes, residential homes and hospitals, Protac Ball Blanket®:
- Increases body awareness
- Has a calming effect
- Helps to promote a good nights’ sleep
- Thus, providing more energy through the day
The blanket comes in cotton or flame retardant material and is machine washable.
Recommended by professionals
Therapists and professionals use the Protac Ball Blanket® as a tool for sensory stimulation. It is ideal for use in sensory integration rooms and for schools with children that have additional needs.
"Protac Ball Blanket® Calm was especially effective on Jens’ ability to fall asleep. When he started school, he experienced many frustrations which affected his sleep. It could take up to two to three hours to fall asleep. When we got the Protac Ball Blanket®, the time it took him to fall asleep was reduced to half an hour. It may still be hard for Jens to go to school, but the improved sleep means he has a better day overall and that it is easier for him to cope with the challenges of the day."
9-year-old boy with sleeping disturbances and poor sleeping quality
"The boy says that the Protac Ball Blanket® Calm is great: 'It allows me to lie still without getting rambunctious'. With the blanket on, he lies in his bed and talks for 5 minutes, then he relaxes and calms down. He sleeps within 15 minutes. He sleeps calmly and without the blanket cover falling off. He wears the blanket all night. It's really nice both for him and for us ."
23-year-old woman with depression
“Before I started using the Protac Ball Blanket®, I was nervous and stressed and suffered from frequent bouts of depression. I heard about ball blankets and thought I would give it a chance. At first no major difference was felt but after two weeks it started to feel different. I slept much deeper and could relax in bed. It’s very heavy which meant that I got a greater sense of security when I was lying under it. During the day I also felt the change: I was much livelier, overcame more challenges, became happier but above all: the depression disappeared! So, for me, the Protac Ball Blanket® has worked great.”
The blankets are available in weights from 4 -11kg and they contain 3.8cm balls. The blankets are either 140 x 200cm or 140 x 220cm.
