Which Children Need Special Needs Equipment

Posted on by netviper

There are several disorders that may require your child to use special needs equipment.  Children who suffer from disorders such as epilepsy or seizures may benefit from our helmets to help prevent head injuries during a fall.  They are also useful for children with disorders such as hemophilia, because they can protect the child from cranial injuries that can lead to uncontrolled bleeding.  This type of protection can mean the difference between a minor fall and a trip to the hospital for emergency treatment.

Sizing Helmets for Special Needs Children

Posted on by netviper

It is fairly easy to size helmets for special needs children.  When you are ready to order a helmet, all you need to do is measure the circumference of your child’s head.  This can be done with either a cloth tape measure or a piece of string.  You wrap the item gently around your child’s head, about an inch above the eyebrows and above each ear.  You then note the measurement on the tape measure, or mark the place on the string, and then measure it with a conventional ruler.

Why Order Helmets for Special Needs Children
