Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution agreement with Sammons Preston/Patterson Medical to further distribute the ProtectaCap+Plus® protective headgear for toddlers to a wider consumer market. Invented and patented by Janice Carrington of Plum Enterprises, the ProtectaCap+Plus® is the state-of-the-art end result of years of research, development, testing and fine-tuning. While this lightweight, comfortable and custom-fitting protective headgear is especially intended for toddlers as that age group is highest at risk for falls and head injuries, there are also sizes to accommodate larger children and adults.
As an 'Advanced Falls Safety Helmet', the ProtectaCap+Plus® is engineered for optimal stated deceleration of impact energy to help children and adults to stay safe while they stay active. This special helmet absorbs 90% of impact energy, making it 400% safer than vinyl-covered helmets. Its patented, dual-protective core is sturdy and dependable, unbreakable, and cannot crack or be picked apart, making it unnecessary to replace it after a fall or impact. Because of its custom-fit capabilities, this helmet provides a patented, ergonomic and secure fit that will stay put and not slide around on the head. Virtually weightless and encased in comfortable, breathable cotton stretch twill, the soft cotton is placed next to the head instead of foam, plastic or vinyl, and the patented protective core is ventilated and will not absorb water.
The ProtectaCap+Plus® is the helmet neurosurgeons depend on for our veterans post-combat and post-brain surgery, and it has been recommended and prescribed for a wide variety of other uses including craniectomy, cerebral palsy, seizures, head banging, craniosynostosis, craniopagus twins, Alzheimer's, balance disorders, post cranial surgery, hydrocephalus, shunts, Parkinson's, epilepsy, aqua therapy, autism and traumatic brain injuries. Comfortable and replaceable cotton covers called +PlusPockets reinforce protection of chin and cheeks, while the signature design of the helmet itself with its top-anchored chin straps ensures dependable reinforced protection of the back of head, temples and forehead. Fully machine-washable, this helmet is also latex-free, vinyl-free and hypo-allergenic, eliminating the possibility of head rash often caused by plastic, vinyl or leather helmets.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to introduce the amazing benefits of the ProtectaCap+Plus® protective headgear to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “With a full range of sizes available, everyone of every age will be sure to find exactly the right custom fit for themselves or their loved ones with this special lightweight helmet. The ProtectaCap+Plus® is ideal for children and adults with weak neck muscles and/or balance disorders because it is so light in weight, and this innovative helmet will provide unsurpassed quality, functionality and dependability for many years to come.”
