Measurements are in inches

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since proper fit is important for the comfort of the person wearing headgear, measurements should be determined by professional personnel.

Measure the head circumference (A) at eyebrow level all the way around the head.

Occipital measurement (B) is taken from eyebrow level to the back of the head at the point that the helmet is to end.

Over the top of the Head (C)from the tip of one ear to the tip of the other ear.


If for some reason the measurements do not fall within the above guidelines, or if there are other considerations to be taken into account, please refer to the page for information on Custom Helmets.

 

HEADGEAR SELECTION

Some suggested considerations to use in helping to determine what type of helmet would be suitable for your client:

  •  -Degree of physical activity.
  •  -Potential for striking surfaces (floor, walls, furniture, 
  •   etc.).
  •  -Nature of self-abusiveness.
  •  -Severity & frequency of seizures or spasticity.
  •  -Length of time worn.

IMPORTANT

While we believe that headgear can substantially reduce the risk of head injury, we emphasize that there is no known device for preventing all injuries. Only you the customer are in a position to evaluate the particularized needs of the individual client in each environment. It is essential that professional and medical expertise be utilized in rendering decisions regarding headgear use.
