Owing to its innovative construction, the head protection HP-5 Special Needs Helmet head protection is individually adjustable in many areas (head circumference, inclination, strap lengths) making it ideal to adapt to the individual measures of the person in need of care.
Help your loved ones by protecting them from head trauma, headbanging and falls with our protective and especially comfortable HP5 head protection.
The HP-5 can be expanded or contracted due to the users growth, swelling, surgery etc. In these cases it is possible that the shape of the head and therefore particular measurements can change in a very short time, which the HP-5 can accommodate.
