ASTM IMPACT ABSORPTION Less is More!
The Lower the Number, the Greater the Protection
Compare the GMax [maximum gravity] of Plum’s® Helmets to Vinyl-Dipped Helmets.
A Peak G Number Above 200 is Dangerous. The lower the GMax number the better the head
protection.

Client Reviews and Testimonials
The ProtectaCap® has worked out great. My daughter loves it. She couldn’t stand the vinyl one; it was bulky and uncomfortable.
We were so glad to receive information on your ProtectaCap®! Our son had cranial surgery and we had to wrap his head in layers and layers of gauze and cotton which was getting harder to do as he regained his strength after the surgery. At the six-week post-op appointment, we showed the ProtectaCap® to the surgeon and he thought it was great! Thank you for making a usable, durable headgear; it fits our needs perfectly!
My name is Tiffany and I’m leaving a message to say thank you for the ProtectaCap®. I’m 34 and I fall all the time. And ProtectaCap® has saved me from being knocked out. Thank you for such a great product.
We’ve heard all positive things about the ProtectaCap® helmets. They’ve worked great for our patients post-surgery and the compliance is wonderful. We’re completely switching to them from our previous helmets. We still have some of our old helmets, but we won’t use them anymore.
T. Bonaldo, RN, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital
Our son (1 year old) had surgery on his skull at 4 months of age for a prematurely closed fontanelle. His surgeon advised that he wear a protective helmet while he’s learning to walk. I was glad to find the Protect-a-Cap through an epilepsy website. We now have 2 and my son is very comfortable in them. He likes his cap more than his other hats! He now can walk across the room and we feel a little more comfortable when he is wearing the Protect-a-cap. Thank you for making such an outstanding product. I have enclosed a picture of our son wearing his cap.
