Repose Protac Sensit® Healthcare Chair


The Protac Sensit® Healthcare Chair Envelops and calms the body.

The Protac SenSit healthcare chair 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.

The chair is filled with Protac 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. Also available is an optional leg rest – the Protac Sensit Pouffe.

It has countless applications and can be found in care homes, hospitals, hospices, charities, special schools, psychiatric departments, waiting rooms, sensory rooms, treatment and therapy rooms as well as in people’s households.

Protac SenSit can be used:

  • With adults suffering from mental and physical restlessness.
  • In psychiatric departments and daycare facilities for adults with developmental disorders providing a ‘safe refuge’ in communal areas for patients and users who find it difficult to be surrounded by lots of people.
  • In pre-school and school environments as a time-out for children during a busy school day.
  • With restless children, as the chair helps them to concentrate when doing their homework.
  • For ordinary relaxation when the user is watching TV or sitting with a computer.

Available in 8 colours. The Aqua Blue and Lime Green are ready for short term delivery, depending on the quantities involved. The other 6 colours are available, but there will be a slightly longer lead-in time.

Suitable for;

  • Adults, the elderly, children and youths
  • Individuals with ADHD and autism can use the Protac SenSit® chair as a ‘contained space’ where the user is surrounded by the balls and receive the sensory stimuli needed to ensure calm and a sense of security. The chair can be used to eliminate sensory impressions so that the user can concentrate on school homework for example.
  • Individuals with mental illness often suffer from motor and mental restlessness. The chair can be used as a ‘safe place’ to ensure calm and a sense of security for the user. The weight and pressure of the balls also lead to better body awareness and improved well-being.
  • Those with for example developmental disorders, sensory disruption and deaf-blindness in order to increase the body’s sensory stimuli.
  • People with stress to ensure calm and a sense of security as well as better body awareness.
  • Care homes, hospitals, hospices, charities, schools and special schools, psychiatric departments, waiting rooms, sensory rooms, treatment and therapy rooms as well as in people’s homes.

Unique Sensory Stimulation – Protac® Balls

The Protac Sensit envelops and calms through the balls which, thanks to the deep touch pressure and constant contact to the body’s surface which they provide, activate the sense of touch and sense of body position and movement. The balls have been designed strategically into the seating solution, to maximise the user benefits. They are built into the lining of the product and the balls are held in individual specially constructed ball bags.

Chair Design

The Protac balls are featured in the side wings, neck wings, back cushion and seat cushion. The neck cushion is granulated. They all move in response to the user’s body position and movement.

 

Neck and Wings Design

Both the side and neck wings can be placed over the user so they can feel the weight and pressure of the balls which will lead to a better sense of the body’s boundaries and body awareness, increasing sensory stimuli. These wing cushions can be adjusted for postural comfort. Alternatively, they can be positioned so that they are not on the person.

Carrying handles

The Protac Sensit comes with carrying handles for ease of movement.

Spare Covers for ease of washing

Covers are replaceable and washable. We would recommend the purchase of a second set so that they can be used when others are being washed. The balls in the side wings are washable.

Please ensure that you follow the recommended cleaning instructions in the user manual.

 

Protac Sensit® Pouffe

In addition to the chair, you have the option to purchase a pouffe footstool which can either complement the chair as a leg rest or be used separately as a footstool. The balls in the upper part of the footstool stimulate the senses, whilst being very comfortable to sit on. In some schools, it is used as a chair in the lower grades. We also have other footstools that are available.
