A helmet may be considered equipment for special needs children and adults. These helmets are designed to protect the skull from impacts resulting in falling and/or walking into barriers, such as walls and corners. They can also help you protect adults who may have lost some motor control, such as from a stroke, or from falling out of their chair. The impact resistant helmets from Guardian Helmets can be used for any sized individual, from a child learning to walk to an adult who is suffering from seizures.
Using a Helmet as Equipment for your Special Needs Child
Your doctor may have recommended for your child wear a helmet when they play to avoid injury to their head. This type of equipment for special needs children is often necessary to prevent them from falling or running into a barrier. These helmets are designed to absorb the impact with the outside surface, protecting their skull from damage and can prevent trips to the emergency room for parents.
