Plum’s Protective Helmets, Hip Protectors & Extremity Guards for Special Needs and Healthy Aging

Falls are the leading cause of death and disability. A head injury or hip fracture can change a life in seconds. Children ages newborn to 4 are at high risk for traumatic brain injuries. Early brain injuries have been linked to seizures, alcoholism and Parkinson’s. Every 18 seconds an older adult is treated in an emergency room for a fall. Head injuries and hip fractures cause the most severe health problems, the poorest quality of life and the greatest number of deaths.

Plum’s mission is to replace your fear of falling, head injuries and hip fractures with freedom, safety and empowerment.

Plum specializes in fall injury prevention with ProtectaCap® & ProtectaCap+Plus® custom-fitting protective headgear, ProtectaHip® the original, award-winning hip protectors, and ProtectaWrap® extremity protectors for knees, elbows, shins & arms. Plum’s patented falls safety products are engineered for proven superior safety effectiveness and designed for comfort, style and durability.

Well the good news is that apart from shock and bruises the ProtectaHip® Hip Protectors did their job admirably!
