Repose Protac Sensit® High Back

The Protac Sensit® High Back Healthcare envelops and calms the body

Protac SenSit® High Back is a sensory-stimulating chair designed with a straight back which offers an alternative to the Protac Sensit, for those who are taller than 180 cm (5' 11") and for elderly people who have problems standing from a seated position. It provides the same sense of security, calm and comfort and increased levels of concentration among users as the Protac Sensit.

Adults, young people and the elderly suffering from mental and physical restlessness can benefit from the Protac® SenSit High Back. 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.

It has countless applications and is today found in care homes, hospices, hospitals, psychiatric departments, in ordinary homes, waiting rooms, sensory rooms and treatment and therapy rooms as well as in special schools and other schools.

The Protac SenSit® High back can be used:

  • For ordinary relaxation when the user is watching TV or sitting with a computer.
  • 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.
  • With restless children, as the chair helps them to concentrate when doing their homework or playing games which demand their full attention.
  • In pre-schools and school environments as a time-out for children during a busy school day.
  • Available in 8 colours with Aqua Blue and Lime Green ready for short term despatch. The other 6 colours are available, but there will be a slightly longer lead-in time.

Unique Sensory Stimulation – Protac® Balls

It 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 ball bags.

Functional Design

The Sensit High Back was designed as an alternative to the Sensit. It has been designed with a higher seat to floor level and also a higher and more upright back. These features support the ease of rising to a standing position, which may be particularly important for some elderly people who have difficulty rising to a standing position. It also provides additional back and neck support and is recommended for people who are taller than 180 cm (5’ 11”).

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.

Sides and Neck Wings

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.

Removable / Reversible Seat Cushion

The seat cushion is removable and reversible. It has two seating options – the sensory Protac Balls on one side for sensory stimulation or it can be turned over to a high-grade foam seat.

Carrying Handles

The Sensit High Back comes with carrying handles for ease of movement.

Protac Sensit Pouffe

In addition to the chair, you have the option to purchase a pouffe footstool which can either complement the chair or be used separately as a footstool.  The balls in the upper 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.

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.
