About The Protac KneedMe
The Protac KneedMe® is a knee blanket which is designed and constructed to help users cope with motor and psychological unrest when placed over the knees, thighs and abdomen. The weight and pressure create by the knee blanket helps to foster a calming sense of security by clearly defining the boundary of the body. People suffering from issues such as hyperactivity or ‘restless leg syndrome’ will often find themselves having to cope constantly with restless legs and feet, and the blanket can help with this. It can be utilised for seated activities throughout the day, or when using an armchair or wheelchair, and the non-slip material on the back of the blanket helps to keep it in place on the knees and thighs.
The Protac KneedMe® plays a vital role in the smooth day to day operation of many nursing homes, psychiatric units, supported housing, rehabilitation units, activity centres, day care institutions and sensory rooms, and is equally useful in a huge number of private homes. It is particularly useful during those activities – such as personal hygiene functions or eating situations – which might make the user feel particularly insecure.
