What are they?

With a very similar appearance to a cycling or rugby scrum helmet, protective helmets can be made from soft and rigid materials depending upon the level of protection and comfort required. Additions such as face guards, frontal bumpers or reinforcements may also be added.

What do they do?

Helmets provide impact protection for the head and face of the wearer. 

 

Indications for use:

  • Falling due to poor balance or coordination.

  • Self-harming behavior.

  • Following surgeries e.g. craniotomy. 

Positional

Helmets.

What are they?

You may have been quite startled to notice your babies head developing an unusual shape. The condition is not unusual and is called Plagiocephaly, and often results from external forces applied to the soft infant skull. Positional helmets are usually are  from an outer hard shell with a foam lining. 

What do they do?

Gentle, persistent pressures are applied to capture the natural growth of an infant's head, while inhibiting growth in the prominent areas and allowing for growth in the flat regions. As the head grows, adjustments are made frequently with careful and frequent monitoring. 

 

Indications for use:

  • Plagiocephaly.

  • Brachiocephaly.

Collars.

The collars may be a single size which has a front section that can be adjusted to the required depth or there may be a range of sizes each of which has a specific fixed depth.

What do they do?

They maintain the head in a neutral forward facing position and reduces unwanted / painful movements of the head and neck.

 

Indications for use:

  • Moderate - severe sprains and strains.
