protac-sensit-chair

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.

Protac SenSit has countless applications, and is today found in many nursuries, schools, psychiatric departments, hospitals, private homes, waiting rooms, sensory rooms, 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 nurseries 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.
