As a person moves around in the seat, the balls inside the cushion will also move a bit, bringing the body's centre of gravity beyond its base of support. In order to regain your balance, you have to automatically shift your position and sit up straight.
Shifting positions trains the muscles around the abdomen, back and lumbar area; this increases muscle tone and straightens your posture which relieves the pressure on your spine. For a child with a very restless body, the cushion can effectively absorb this restlessness since they will be moving on the cushion constantly.
The continuous stimulation from the balls provides the user with a more distinct awareness of the body and a greater sense of calm. This makes it easier to focus and concentrate on new tasks and input.
Available as a single or quadruple cushion design they come in 5 colours. The cushions have the option of different sized balls depending on individual requirements. They are suitable for different types of chair including classroom and shell chairs.
The Protac Ball Cushion was developed to help sufferers of functional impairment and is suitable for a whole range of conditions in children and young people. It comes in two styles which allow for different seating / sensory requirements.
They are suited to different types of chair and are simple to connect by using the tie’s at each corner of the cushion.
The cushion is often used in conjunction with the Protac vests (MyFit), knee blankets (KneedMe) and footstools (GroundMe) as an overall sensory stimuli solution. The seat cushion has even been used by some people as a foot rest.
Available in a choice of five colours.
