As a Charity, any profit made from every purchase goes back to helping families with disabled children.
Until now, it wasn’t possible to wear most head protectors while bathing, showering, swimming or during hydrotherapy sessions. They become heavy and tend to perish quickly due to the chemicals or detergents in the water. However, practice shows that head protection is still essential in these areas. Therefore, the HP-Aqua waterproof head protector (HP-A) was designed and manufactured.
The HP-A Aqua Soft Helmet is incredibly lightweight, weighing only about 180 grams, and doesn't become significantly heavier when it gets wet. It's designed to provide head protection for individuals who are deemed to have a low to moderate risk of head injuries or impacts..
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, allowing the head protector to dry quickly between uses.
