Helmet with multifunction tip

About the solution

It was due to my physical disabilities that me and my father (Fernando, 50), created this support to make my life easier. The idea came up when I went to school, when I was six/seven years old. Because I couldn't write with my hands, my doctors and teachers gave me a helmet, but unfortunately was never able to adapt myself to it, because it was too heavy, and had a lot of things in front of my eyes (tubes, screws...) and it was hard to put on. I still typed on the computer for a year, until one day, my father got a helmet from construction and adapted it. That is the helmet I still use today.

It is suitable for people with severe lesions, such as: quadriplegics, brain paralysis or deficiencies which cause involuntary limb movement.

This adaptation helps with the following tasks: using a computer, paint, draw, make fairy air, among many things.

This helmet with ferrule was made from the following materials: helmet kernel works, aluminum tube, a small plastic tube on the tip, hot glue, wire and soft material lining the helmet (foam and napa). And compared to the helmets sold in specific stores, this is super-light and very cheap!
