What Our Customers Are Saying…

Dr. Kang,

Per your request, here is the website for that wonderful protective head-gear I bought for Diana. Unfortunately, we had opportunity to prove how good it is; yesterday (Friday) Diana fell backwards onto the street; JUST out of my grasp! She hit the pavement very hard….. we went straight to ER because I was concerned about hematoma etc….. We’re blessed that it does not appear that any lasting effects were evident, and I can say with confidence that this helmet saved Diana’s life. She really wacked her head, and without that headgear, it would have been incredibly serious. The product is incredibly expensive; five times as expensive as a good bike helmet, BUT, it is designed for protection AND comfort. Diana can even sleep in it since the sides are kind of “flat” unlike a bike helmet.

Dear Janice,

I am relieved to tell you that Mum’s ProtectaHips® arrived this morning.

We are delighted not only with the quality but also their appearance. The last ones were unattractive and the fit was not good but we believed it was something to be endured for safety’s sake. It is wonderful that you have achieved attractive merchandise without compromising the needs of those with special needs.

I wish you every success with your business enterprise Janice. Mum has a message for you which is `GIRL POWER’.

So pleased I found you on the internet and took at the time what I thought to be a risk.

With affection and every good wish, Jillian and her mum Sadie. XX

“Janice, I can’t thank you enough for the most wonderful vacation our family has ever had.”

Lora Riley

Dear Janice,

I hope you are well and enjoying continued success with your business.

Mum is really comfortable and enjoys wearing the hip protectors and the 2 pairs of trousers we purchased, and sends her gratitude and best wishes.

Please could we place a further order for 2 LARGE ProtectaHip® White under Pants. (ordered previously in 2009).

Many thanks and every good wish,


Jillian Cohen

“ProtectaCap+Plus®® has been working miracles for our daughter. It’s tremendous. It’s the greatest thing. Best money we’ve spent in 5 years.”

R. Hesson

Dear Janice,

Mum and I wanted to convey our gratitude for the ProtectaHip® we purchased from you with our personal testimony.

Last week Sadie (mum) had a bad fall in the early hours. As she is unable to use her right arm we were distressed that it would add to her disabilities. Well the good news is that apart from shock and bruises the ProtectaHip® Hip Protectors did their job admirably!

With our very best wishes as always,

Jillian XX And Sadie XX,

We’ve heard all positive things about the ProtectaCap® helmets. They’ve work great for our patients post-surgery and the compliance is wonderful. We’re completely switching to them from our previous helmets. We still have some of our old helmets, but we won’t use them anymore.

If I didn’t have the ProtectaHip® on, things would have been really bad. It saved me. I get up and put it on every day. You never know when these things could happen.”

E.Rodriguez, NY

“Our patient and her family loved the ProtectaCap® right away. She has Dementia, which has also affected her eyesight and had just suffered a serious head injury from a fall. She falls all the time and does not get hurt when wearing ProtectaCap®. We love the excellent quality. And she doesn’t want to take it off. We’re also relieved she can sleep in the ProtectaCap®. Thank you for your excellent customer service.”

J. Burke, Sylvestry Long Term Care

M. Kannegaard, WA

“I’ve been recommending and ordering your ProtectaCap® for 20 years. It’s wonderful and so lightweight. It’s ideal for the pool for walking by the pool and aqua therapy. We had someone slip by the pool and he would have cracked his head without the ProtectaCap®.”

F. Dolcy, P.T.

“I must shout the praises for your ProtectaCap+Plus®. My daughter fell backwards and her hard helmet broke. Her skull cracked open. That helmet didn’t absorb the impact. It just transferred it to her head! ProtectaCap+Plus® has proven to be the single most effective way to keep my 42 year-old daughter safe.”

L. Reilly, Lake St. Louis, MO

“Most of the patients we use ProtectaCap® with have a low platelet count and have tendency to bleed easily if they bump their head. Some of the patients we’ve used ProtectaCap® for have brain tumors, and part of their skull removed. The ‘Cap® serves as a protective device should they fall.”

“As a pediatric physical therapist in the Chicago area, I like the construction of ProtectaCap®, particularly its low forehead and its contour design. It gives children with hypotonia confidence when they stand with a wide gait. If they fall frequently, which they do, ProtectaCap® gives their parents a sense of security that their child’s skull will be protected.”

P.M. Nootbaar, PT/PCS, Buffalo Grove, IL

S. Reeves, MSW, Hospital

N. Carney, OT Shiner’s Hospital, Los Angeles, CA

“We use ProtectaCaps® with kids who have seizures and are very active and unsteady on their feet. The ‘Cap®doesn’t interfere with their normal activity. ProtectaCap® does a good job of protecting their heads.”
