Reduce the risk of devastating head and brain injury with HeadSaver - the stylish, lightweight, comfortable, all-soft head protector.

Comfort and Ease

Comfort and ease of use are just two of the benefits enjoyed by all HeadSaver users, from Nursing Home residents and staff to active, independent seniors.

Although we emphasize the importance of our head protection products for the elderly, HeadSaver is the right head protector choice for all with concerns about falling or with medical conditions such as Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, or Cerebral Palsy, which make them unsteady on their feet.

HeadSaver Testing

A specially designed test rig was constructed to conduct impact drop tests at pre-determined drop heights. Three impact orientations namely frontal, lateral and posterior impacts were conducted. An accelerometer, mounted on a flat faced striker with a mass of 2.3kg, was released at a distance of 0.04m, 0.08m, 0.12m, 0.16m and 0.20m with respect to the contact surface.

Head injury is a key risk in senior falls

Brain injuries account for half of all deaths from falls, and the death rate from falls among our elderly has increased by about 55 percent since 1990. One in three seniors aged 65 and older fall with 30 percent requiring medical treatment. Severe injury often results as the veins and arteries of older people are more vulnerable to a sudden blow or jolt to the head.

The very serious social and economic impact of head and brain injuries

Head injuries, resulting from falls, are among the most serious form of injury which can lead to death, and one of the main causes of nonfatal injuries that limit independent living among people 65 years and older.

While medications, such as sedatives and anti-anxiety drugs, often increase the risk of falls and fall-related injuries, poor vision, and just difficulty in moving from place to place put the elderly at risk of a fall that can result in a fatal or debilitating head injury.

Brain injury is a very serious medical health injury that directly impacts on the economy. Each year an estimated 135,000 people in Australia sustain a traumatic brain injury. This figure doesn’t include other injuries including cuts, bruising, broken noses etc. The impact on their families and caregivers is immense.

Head injuries are preventable

Seniors often develop a fear of falling, causing them to limit activities which leads to reduced mobility. Wearing a HeadSaver soft head protector can restore confidence of motion to the elderly, both preserving physical health and increasing senior mobility.
