Plum® Beginnings

Janice Carrington pioneered falls safety when she founded Plum® Enterprises in 1983 researching falls and head injury among very young children. After years of research, development, testing and fine-tuning, Carrington invented ProtectaCap®, the patented custom-fitting protective headgear for toddlers, the age group at high risk for falls and head injuries.

ProtectaCap® now protects individuals of all ages with many applications from infants post-surgery to our veterans.

In 1993, Carrington developed ProtectaHip®, the original hip protector, after pioneering awareness and research in the incidence, morbidity and mortality of the hip fracture epidemic among aging adults. ProtectaHip® was recognized with the American Society on Aging Award in 2000.
