DetailsThe Hard Comfy Cap is our lightweight protective helmet that features a compression-molded inner foam liner attached to a hard plastic exterior. It offers the same comfortable fit as the Soft Top model. The liner is molded into small raised foam sections joined together with air channels between each section, much like small pillows.This design contrasts with other helmets that have a closed cell foam liner of a heavier, denser foam that insulates, resulting in retention of a great deal of body heat. The Hard Top Comfy Cap is extremely well ventilated, retaining limited body heat. Easy cleaning with soap and water, towel dry.Available in three sizes based on head circumference at eyebrow level:
Silver Gray liner, Cream hard shell exterior. Chin strap included. Weighs 12 oz.

Since proper fit is important for the comfort of the person wearing headgear, measurements should be determined by professional personnel.
- Measure the head circumference (A) at eyebrow level.
- Occipital measurement (B) is taken from eyebrow level to the back of the head at the point that the helmet is to end.
- Over the top of the Head (C) to top of ears.
If for some reason the measurements do not fall within the above guidelines, or if there are other considerations to be taken into account, please refer to the page for information on Custom Helmets.
Some suggested considerations to use in helping to determine what type of helmet would be suitable for your client.
- degree of physical activity
- potential striking surfaces (floor, walls, furniture, etc.)
- nature of self abusiveness
- severity & frequency of seizures or spasticity
- length of time worn
While we believe that headgear can substantially reduce the risk of head injury we emphasize that there is no known device for preventing all injuries. Only you the customer are in a position to evaluate the particularized needs of the individual client in each environment. It is essential that professional and medical expertise be utilized in rendering decisions regarding headgear use.
