What are special needs helmets & hats for?
Head protection is used for various medical conditions and situations to prevent or minimise injuries to the head. Some common medical conditions where head protection is recommended include:
It’s important to note that specific types of head protection may vary depending on the condition and individual requirements. Consulting with a healthcare professional or specialist is recommended to determine the most suitable head protection for a particular medical condition.
Our Perfect Fit Scanning Service
For the HP3 and models above, we highly recommend our Perfect Fit (TM) service, which uses cutting-edge technology to actually scan the users’ cranium to provide a 3D print of the head.
This 3D print is then used as the guide (or mold) around which the head protection is built.
This ensures a ‘perfect fit’, which ensures that the hat or helmet does not slip or move when worn, resulting in much better protection and comfort for the wearer.
How to measure for head protection
To place an order for an HP1, HP2, Snooze and Aqua models, we only need a few simple measurements. We can send you the measurement sheet which shows which measurements we require to make your head protection.
For difficult cases or if there are anomalies in the skull, we recommend using our Perfect Fit™ system, which is quick and easy, however will require a home visit and an assessment.

It’s important to consider the individual needs and consult with healthcare professionals or therapists experienced in working with individuals with autism or ADHD before considering the use of head protection.
