More than 35 years of experience in advice and solutions in the event of unrest in healthcare
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 are 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 sparring partner in the field of freedom-restricting substances and alternatives in unrest situations. From 2019 we will be called Human Protection, because it fits better with the way we want to be seen and with our objective: creating peace and safety and offering as much freedom of movement as possible for patients and residents.
