Why Posey® Protective Caps for Fall Protection
Posey Protective Caps provide the newest design for fall protection and impact protection that they have D30 foam integrated into the design which has been tested to have a high level of impact absorption. It remains soft and flexible until it is impacted by another object, then it locks into a solid shape to form a protective layer. These caps have been shown to provide 39% average impact reduction from a drop height of 80cm (about 30") which can greatly reduce injuries from patient falls, sports falls or hits or workplace impacts. These hats can be used in conjunction with other protective gear to maximize protection.
Posey Protective Caps Can Help Prevent Concussions in Sports
Concussions are among the most common injuries associated with both professional and highschool sports and concussions in football; even repeated mild concussions can cause lasting problems. Now more than ever people know the possible traumatic and life changing injuries which can result from a head injury while playing a sport or while at work. Keep yourself and loved ones safe in whatever they do. Don't start with concussion treatment or starting to look at the signs of traumatic brain injury. Start with prevention in a comfortable, effective, and easy to use product like the Posey Protective caps. The beanie model of hat fits comfortably underneath helmets and other protective gear like hard hats. The risk of concussions in football and other sports can potentially be reduced significantly more when helmets are used with a Posey Protective Cap with D30 Foam.
Protective Caps for Care Facilities
Posey Protective Caps are also useful in care facilities where there is risk that the patient may fall and injure their heads. For patients who are already hospitalized, another head injury will make their recovery more difficult. These Fall Protection Caps can greatly reduce the chances of a patient sustaining such an injury and holding the hospital or care facility liable. This Brochure gives an in depth look at the benefits of Posey Protective Caps.
