Protac KneedMe ®
– promotes peace and a sense of security
Peace and a sense of security
Protac KneedMe ® is a sensory stimulating knee blanket which helps young people, adults and the elderly suffering from mental and motor restlessness. When Protac KneedMe ® is placed on your lap, the weight and touch pressure of the balls helps to clearly delimit the body and lead to feelings of peace and security. For people with restless legs and feet, which often affects people suffering from hyperactivity or ‘restless legs syndrome’, the blanket can often help to calm them down. For example, the knee blanket can be used in armchairs, in wheelchairs or for seated activities during the day.
Protac KneedMe is used by therapists and professionals when providing therapy and motor training for patients and clients who find it difficult to cooperate, stay focused and concentrate. Protac KneedMe has, for example, proved beneficial in connection with cognitive training, speech therapy, hand therapy, personal care, ADL training or treatment according to the principles of Affolter, Bobath and Coombes (ABC concept).
Protac KneedMe consists of a removable outer cover and a bag with heavy plastic balls sewn in channels. The knee blanket is fitted with a belt with two straps which can be attached around the user’s waist to prevent the blanket from sliding off their lap. When the belt is not used, it folds away into the cover. The knee blanket’s outer cover can be washed separately.
There is a large pocket on the top side of the Protac KneedMe which can be used for keeping objects that the user likes to hold and touch. The pocket has a strap which can be used for attaching tactile items such as keys.
