Is Thudguard suitable for special needs?

 

USA News - Channel 5 (December 2010)

We are often asked if Thudguard is suitable for infants with special needs.  While we are not medical experts, Thudguard has been supported, endorsed and recommended by members of the medical profession world-wide.

Thudguard has been recommended for children with special circumstances such as hemophilia, autism, seizures, post cranial surgery, and head banging.

We strongly recommend that you take along our product to your health professional and ask for a medical consultation on the use of our product as all situations and circumstances require a professional judgement.

Thudguard is grateful to fundraiser Heather Shapiro and the CURE GLANZMANN'S FOUNDATION, INC. for giving us a chance to help make a difference.

Thudguard Keyfacts

Size

This stretchy, comfortable design is suitable for the ages between 7 months to just over 2 years, depending on the size of the child's head, stretching from 40 to 50 centimetres or 16 to 20 inches in circumference. It is recommended to take a measurement of your child's head first to confirm the compatibility of the Thudguard sizing.

Weight

Thudguard is one of the lightest head guards in the world, weighing just less than 100 grams / 3.2 oz. This ultra lightweight design is extremely important for an infant's developing neck muscles.

Materials

Thudguard helps cushion the forehead, side and back of the head. It is made from ultra lightweight High Density Foam and medium weight, soft-spun poly / lycra. This makes it ideal for stretching and keeping the shape of the helmet allowing it to be very durable and easily kept clean.
I think the Thudguard will be welcomed by many parents as a piece of equipment that may provide protection for children from a head injury.
