How do I measure for a helmet?

Please see our Helmet Sizing Chart

How can I adjust the size of the helmet for my client?

We have pads specifically designed to help with size adjustments- they are made of the same foam as our helmets so they are easy to clean and will not compress over time.

We have the Liner Cushion, item# 7635, that comes in 1/4″ and 1/2″ thickness to help reduce the circumference of our helmets.

The 1/2″ Crown Pad, item# 7633, adjusts the fit and/or prevents the helmet from falling over the eyes.

Our 1/4″ Liner Pads are 3 x 3 1/2″ vinyl-coated discs that can be used for fitting and sizing adjustment. They are also available in a kit, item# 7643.

Do products from Danmar have any latex in them

No, they do not. They are composed of closed-cell polyvinyl foam and dipped in a vinyl coating.

Can we mount a Face Guard or a Face Bar to a Soft Shell Helmet?

No, they cannot. There must be a hard, stable surface in order to mount the bar or guard. The flexible surface of a Soft Shell Helmet would bend and not offer the same amount of protection.

How do I determine what style of helmet is appropriate?

Always seek a medical professional’s advice and input.

How do I know when a Face Guard or Face Bar is necessary?

Always seek a medical professional’s advice and input.

How do I measure for a Head Support?

There are two measurements that are needed unless otherwise specified on that product’s page:

• “A”, measure the neck circumference (round up to the nearest 1/2 inch).

• “B”, measure vertically between the top of the shoulder to the bottom the earlobe (round up to the nearest 1/2 inch and then subtract 1/2 inch to allow for clearance and head movement).

Match your measurements to the measurement chart provided in the “More Views” section on that product’s page.

We have Size Reducers to help adjust sizing, item#: 6821- see product page for details.

You can also use our 7635 Liner Cushions to reduce circumference- see product page for details. They work the same as they do with our helmets.

How is the correct size for a Head Support determined when the measurements do not fall within the specs of the support?

Please call us at 1-800-783-1998 M – Th from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm EST., and Fridays from 8:00am to 3:30 pm EST., to discuss the possibilities of a custom support. A customization fee will apply.

What kind of head support can I get for an individual who has a trach?

We can custom make our head supports to accommodate a trach. Please call us for assistance with this.

How do I know which Trunk Support, #6610, #6611, or #6620, is the best?

After reading the product descriptions you will see that while they are all supportive the differences are made to accommodate each individual user’s preferences. For example, for some people, the Clear Chest Support is less obtrusive when going out into the community, while others may prefer colors to match their wheelchairs and express their personalities.

How do I determine the correct size for Swim Aids, especially if the swimmer is between the weights given?

Check out the information and catalog pictures carefully, as there are many factors to base your decision on. Some of these include: height, level of ability, medical conditions, therapeutic goals and spasticity/rigidity exhibited. Consult with an Adapted Aquatic Professional who will be willing help in the selection process.

What are my color choices?

Color options vary with each item; see color choices as they are listed with each product.

What Flotation Device do you recommend for my client who has a trachea tube?

We recommend that you consult your therapist for the most suitable flotation device before making a purchase.

We make custom body floats for this purpose. Please call or email for details.

What is the return policy?

Unused standard line merchandise with NO PADS attached may be exchanged or refunded within 45 days from invoice date.

You must contact us to obtain a Return Authorization # prior to shipping back to us.
