There is now a new range of soft protective head wear to protect people who are at risk from or have a history of impacting their face or the back of the head during falls.

 

HP1 impact resistant helmet with womanAdapt a Home provide a range of solutions ranging from standard knocks & bumps protection to full-face & head protection, for falls and self-harm.

The standard head protection is called the HP1 (Head Protector 1) and is great at mitigating small knocks and bumps. The next model (The HP2) improved on the protection and also gives the ability to add additional pads at the front or rear of the head protector, plus the choice of the cotton or leather outer layer.

The HP3 & HP4 models utilise the new Perfect Fit™ technology that actually scans the client and produces a 3D replica of their head, which allows their craftspeople to produce a perfectly fitting head protector.

Perfect Fit™ can also be used to provide accurate measurements of the head over a period of time and monitor growth, swelling etc. The scan itself is very quick and involves no physical contact with the client apart from the client wearing a super-thin headcover to allow the system to measure accurately, which can be fitted by someone that the client knows or trusts.

Getting the perfect fit for high-end head protectors is particularly important as any movement of the protector during an impact or fall will diminish the head protectors' overall effectiveness.

Swimming, Bathing & Hydro-therapy Head Protection

Their range also includes a special neoprene model, The HP-A which was primarily designed for Hydrotherapy sessions. However, it is also particularly useful for washing and bathing sessions. The unit is antibacterial, resistant to soap, detergents and is washable.

 Sleep protection

HP S Head ProtectorAnother popular model is the HP-S (Head Protection - Sleep), which is aimed for users with a history of hurting their head during sleep, either from falls or banging. Made from super soft leather, which contains no dyes or chemicals, but containing a generous layer of extremely comfortable padding. The lining is made from super soft perforated leather to allow the scalp to breath and regulate heat.

 

Head protection after surgery

HP 5 Adjustable Head ProtectionThe HP5 is a leather head protection unit that can expand and contract when required. Ideal for clients who have undergone cranial surgery or suffer from swelling. Clever use of adjustable Velcro straps and a ratchet-style fitting on both sides allow the external and internal components to be independently adjusted and re-positioned constantly - while still offering comprehensive protection against falls and knocks.

 

And finally...

Although not a head protector as such - the final mention goes to the HP-MF which stands for Head Protector Maxilla Facial, basically this is a special, stretchy neoprene strap system which is particularly useful after facial reconstruction surgery as it gently supports the jaw and keeps it closed and in the correct position. It is adjustable and can also be fitted with an air bladder which can be adjusted to provide just the right amount of pressure.
