Every 15 Seconds a Traumatic Brain Injury Occurs.

Head injury from falls is a serious and growing problem for all ages. Trying to get a secure, lightweight fit is also a problem, particularly for small children, older adults and individuals with balance concerns.  Recovery from concussion is slower among older adults, young children and teens.  And those who have had a concussion are at higher risk of having another concussion.

Plum's® ProtectaCap® ... Proven Safety with Lightweight Custom Fit.

First, Comfortable ProtectaCap® is fully encased in cotton blend, which puts soft cotton next to your head, not vinyl, leather, plastic or latex rubber. Therefore, ProtectaCap®  is breathable and much more comfortable than vinyl, leather, plastic or latex rubber helmets.

Second, Anti-Microbial ProtectaCap® is easy care wash and dry for optimal anti-bacterial safety. This is important because protective headgear must stay clean to be safe and comfortable.  ProtectaCap’s® unique safety core will not absorb water which would build bacteria.

Third, Lightweight ProtectaCap® is fully ventilated and weighs only a few ounces. This is essential for both comfort and safety. Plum’s® ProtectaCap® breathes through the safety core and cotton fabric casing.

Time to Get Serious about Head Injuries


There is no such thing as a mild head injury. It’s a misnomer. – Vani Rao, MD, Director, Brain Injury Program, and Neuropsychiatrist

It’s very common for someone who’s had a fall to appear perfectly lucid just after the impact but then to suddenly rapidly deteriorate. – Duke University Medical Center’s Neurosciences Critical Care Unit

People who sustain a single traumatic brain injury are more likely to develop Alzheimer’s-like symptoms later in life. – Center for Brain Injury and Repair, Perelman School of Medicine.  University of Pennsylvania.

ProtectaCap® Love

“Dear Janice and Plum Enterprises,  Our son (1 year old) had surgery on his skull at 4 months of age for a prematurely closed fontanelle.  His surgeon advised that he wear a protective helmet while he’s learning to walk.

“My daughter wouldn’t wear anything on her head. But Mallorie loves her ProtectaCap®!  She even sleeps in it.

“We’ve heard all positive things about the ProtectaCap® helmets. They’ve worked great for our patients post-surgery and the compliance is wonderful.
