Special Needs

Special Needs

People living with autism, mental disorders, traumatic brain injuries, or motor skill impairments sometimes carry a higher risk of head injuries and need to wear head protection on a daily basis. Sport Shieldz caps may be a great alternative to some conventional head gear because they are light, flexible and offer a sportier, more fashionable look than traditional special needs head wear.

And because our caps are comfortable and breathable, they are more likely to be worn more frequently and for longer periods of time. Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that your loved one had protection on their head they didn’t mind wearing?

While no protective head wear can promise the complete elimination of the risk of head injuries, and Sport Shieldz makes no warranty or claim in the prevention of concussions or head injuries, in independent lab tests, Sports Shieldz caps reduced the severity of some impacts and decreased the likelihood of some lacerations caused by contact. In fact, in 100% of the lab tests, when our caps were worn alone, they reduced the G-force impact. (You can read more about the independent lab’s findings here)

Of course, you should consult your physician before trying any new protective means or products on a person with special needs. Only a physician is qualified to recommend the kind of head protection each individual should have.
