Protac SenSit® Straight
Protac SenSit® Straight offers an alternative to the popular Protac SenSit® chair. The high-backed, sensory-stimulating chair is filled with balls, helping provide a greater body awareness, ensuring the user feels grounded and comfortable. The chair comes complete with wings, which can be wrapped around the body, cocooning the user, and bringing a sense of security and calm. The backrest is straight, allowing the user to sit in an upright position, making sitting and standing transfers easier.
Suitable for use in a variety of settings such as nurseries, schools, private homes and hospitals, Protac SenSit®:
- Envelops the user
- Increases body awareness
- Sooths and relaxes
- Increases sense of security
- Enables change in positions
- Ensures a comfortable sitting position
The cover is made of a flame retardant material and is machine washable, although we recommend using a wet cloth or alcohol wipes for daily cleaning.

63-year-old woman with Huntington Chorea disease
"Our resident who has Huntington's Chorea says that she has constantly had an inner turmoil for several years. From a sensory perspective, this is also about her muscle fibers constantly contracting, and that the disease also causes perception disorders, amongst others in the perception of interoceptive sensation. This means that she is constantly on guard and feels tense. The motor restlessness therefore influences the mental restlessness. We experience that she feels secure when she feels that she is being positioned with supports surrounding her body and being proprioceptively stimulated. She therefore enjoys the Protac SenSit® ball chair. The woman uses the chair if she needs to have quiet time or participate in a conversation. The woman is very conscious of when she needs the stimuli that the chair can provide. Furthermore, she sleeps with the Protac Ball Blanket® at night. She explains that it gives her peace and that she relaxes as a result. She experiences an increased energy capacity after experiencing sensory integration strategies embedded in her everyday life, and a more positive affective state."
Protac SenSit® is available in two heights to match the height of the user. The standard model is suitable for people up to 180cm tall, while those taller than this will benefit from the extra support offered by the high back model.
