A-Flex™ Protective Headgear Orthomerica introduces the A-Flex Protective Headgear, an adjustable alternative to other hard protective devices. The A-Flex Protective Headgear is fabricated from a flexible plastic that readily conforms to varying head shapes making it easy-to-fit upon demand. The protection is ideal for low impact forces that are distributed (like a shock absorber) across the entire surface without cracking or penetrating. The headgear is equipped with easy-to-adjust straps minimizing the need for chin straps. Optional chin straps are recommended for active and noncompliant patients. The posterior strap “locks” the device below the mastoids and accommodates size variations while the lateral straps are used for easy donning and doffing. Lateral straps and sideslits are also optional. The A-Flex features ventilation holes to reduce trapped heat. It can be easily trimmed with a pair of shop snips without the need for complex equipment and tools. It can be stocked in various sizes.
