We will be holding an event on 4 July 2016 with staff from Apollo Healthcare for professionals, carers and their families to demonstrate PROTAC sensory integration products.
PROTAC ® is an innovative and socially responsible company, established in Denmark in 1994. All PROTAC ® products have been based on the theories of Dr A. Jean Ayres, the ground breaking occupational therapist based in California, who, in the 1950’s identified and developed the concept now known as sensory integration – the interaction between bodily sensation and the way in which sensation affects behaviour and participation in daily life activities.
Protac Sensory Stimulation Products generally contain plastic balls which stimulate the sense of touch and the muscle-joint sense through their weight and deep, evenly distributed pressure, increasing body awareness which ultimately has a calming effect on the user.
Professionals are invited to attend from 10am to 12.30pm and carers and families from 1pm to 3pm.
