More than 35 years of experience in patient safety and alternative solutions
Human Protection was founded in 1987 under the name It Fits. It Fits designed and produced personal clothing for care situations where standard clothing could not offer a solution. This resulted in (tailor-made) clothing for people with a (mental) disability.
In the years that followed, institutions were increasingly looking for solutions for people with misunderstood behavior. Many still remember Jolanda Venema, 'the girl on the chain'. Jolanda was a young woman with an intellectual disability. She lived in an institution and was chained naked to the wall. A photo of her came into the public eye in 1988 and made the subject of freedom restriction and humanity in healthcare negotiable.
Over the years, It Fits has developed into a serious partner in the field of more humane alternatives to restraints. In 2019 It Fits became Human Protection, because it connects better with the way we want to be seen and with our objective: creating care, freedom and safety for people dealing with restlessness.
