HP-Aqua Special Needs Head Protection

  • Protection for swimming/bathing
  • Neoprene outer
  • Antibacterial
  • Antimicrobial
  • Chemical resistant
  • Lightweight even if wet


Until now, it hasn’t been possible to wear most special needs head protectors when bathing/showering, during swimming or hydrotherapy sessions as they would get heavy and they tend to perish quickly due to the chemicals in the water. However, practice and our experience shows that head protection is still essential in these areas of activity. Therefore the HP-Aqua head protection was designed & produced.

A few simple measurements are all we need to supply you the HP-Aqua special needs head protector.

The HP-Aqua soft helmet is exceptionally light (approx.180 grams) and does not get noticeably heavier when wet.

The “Aqua” head protection is for those who are assessed to have a low to medium risk of impacts/injuries to the head.

This soft helmet is constructed with padded foam wrapped in a super soft neoprene shell. It can resist knocks to the front, back, top of the head and sides. It also protects the top of the head via impact-resistant trapezoid sections. The neoprene is extremely soft and tactile to the touch and allows the head protector to dry quickly between uses.

The HP-Aqua head protection is also anti-bacterial and resistant to the chemicals frequently used in swimming and hydrotherapy pools.

Wash or rinse through with clean water after use, which will remove any soap or chemical residue. This will extend the life of the product. Hand washable at up to 40° after washing It should be left to dry naturally away from heat sources.

The Aqua has an adjustable velcro fastening chin strap as standard that offers excellent hold and comfort. This means the protector stays secure on the head.

Please note: Although these products are designed to substantially reduce the risk of head injuries, the manufacturer and seller accept no responsibility for injury or loss arising from the use of these products. These products are not able to offer complete protection from ALL types of injury, although every effort is made in their design to offer the best head protection possible. 

If a helmet is damaged in any way, it should not be worn. We would like to emphasize that there is no known device or helmet for preventing 100% of all injuries. Only you, the customer or user, are in a position to evaluate the particular needs of the individual in each environment. It is, therefore, essential that professional and medical expertise be sought in making decisions regarding headgear use.
