RIBCAP: Launch new protective helmet for kids

We are launching a completely new children's helmet with extra protection:
  • https://www.ribcap.com/pages/newsofthelmet
The good news is that this is a totally renewed concept that is now being reimbursed in Belgium by health insurers.
This a totally new concept in the market and ready for ordering. So this is a great opportunity to put this on the market together. As this is a summer helmet it's an ideal moment to launch so we would appreciate it a lot if we could really work on this together.

Below you'll find the benefits of the new soft helmet as well as our renewed marketing:
  • Extra protection: We have added extra protection for the area around the sleep and the back of the head. This has been developed in collaboration with some neuro specialists here in Belgium. This is completely removable with a soft velcro strap so that you can choose to wear it or not.
  • Improved Chinstraps: We have added Y-shaped chin straps for better safety and comfort.
  • BSI tested: We have conducted an impact test according to the "World Rugby Headgear Standard" and we are proud to say that we have passed! Why the Rugby standard, you might ask? There is no impact standard or regulation for medical soft helmets, so we have taken the best applicable existing standard on the market. BSI is a global leader in impact testing and an official "Notified Body"!

Prevent head injuries: Meet the best protective helmet - RIBCAP soft helmet

The doctor or another health care professional has just advised you to buy a protective helmet because your child's seizures have been causing sudden drops or falls that may cause a head injury. But what type of helmet is best for you and your child? Where you should go to get one?

To determine the best type of helmet, begin by thinking about your child's seizure behaviors. If your child falls backward, the back of the head needs protection. A good helmet also needs a chinstrap that can be adjusted so that it is snug but not uncomfortable. No matter what direction your child falls, the helmet should absorb the impact, so it will be useless if it does not remain securely on the head.

Not all types of helmets offer adequate protection. Bicycle helmets are comfortable and good-looking, but they do not offer the best protection for injuries from seizure activity.  The longevity of the helmet is another problem. With repeated hard falls, a bicycle helmet may crack.

Boxing helmets, made of soft leather, are comfortable but they offer no protection and do not allow adequate ventilation. Football helmets offer good protection but are large and uncomfortable to wear. Baseball batting helmets are loose-fitting and are made without a chinstrap, so they offer inadequate protection.

Other helmets, like Ribcap Soft helmets, are made specially to protect people with medical needs, including small children. 

Other features to look for in a soft, lightweight helmet are core components engineered specifically to absorb and dissipate energy, so the helmet is both protective and durable.
