Testimonial

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Jeremy and his assistant Rita at the Michigan Hand and Sports Rehab for their help in making a custom face mask for our son. Jeremy and Rita are true heartfelt professionals. The services they provided were quick, accurate, and genuine. Jeremy responded immediately to our e-mail and had Rita set up an appointment with us within the same week. Colten was so excited; he could not wait to meet Jeremy. Jeremy spent valuable time listening to Colten and examining him to understand exactly how a mask should be created to protect our son's nose and forehead without placing any pressure on his titanium plates that holds our son's forehead together. Our son underwent two 16 hour surgeries to remove a tumor from his skull base which is why we absolutely needed the best mask possible to protect our son while allowing him to have clear vision to see his wrestling opponent. We feel very blessed that Jeremy has this talent to create custom face masks allowing individuals to safely participate in their sport. We cannot say enough about Jeremy, our experience was awesome. We highly recommend his expertise.

God Bless and Many thanks,
The Datkun Family
How to get a Facemask

There are a few easy steps that must be followed in order to obtain a custom facemask for yourself, your child, or your athlete.

Step 1: A prescription from your doctor

When the prescription is written it needs to have the name of the patient, the date that it was written, the specific diagnosis, and what is being prescribed. It is typical for the physician to write "Custom Facemask" or "Custom Protective Mask" on the prescription.

Step 2: Photos

In order to establish proper trimlines for a facemask, Jeremy will need to work from some simple headshots of the patient. He needs three (3) photos:
  • Frontal, full face image
  • Right facial profile
  • Left facial profile
Photos can either be emailed to MHSRC (preferred) or printed and included with the shipping package. Photos can be emailed to:
jermurray@hanger.com

Step 3: A facial Impression

This step is the most difficult step to complete. In order to create a custom facemask we need to have an impression, or cast, of the patients face. This is what we use to make a positive working mold of your face to create a truly custom facemask. There are many ways to have an impression taken. An orthotist (which can be located in your area at www.oandpcare.org), treating physician, team trainer, or physical therapist are all options. We have even had parents, coaches, or friends take impressions with great success. For exact details about having an impression made, such as dimensions and procedures, please call or text Jeremy at (586) 243-5175.

Step 4: Payment

Please contact us to arrange payment for the facemask. We are happy to accept a credit card over the phone (Visa, MC, Amex, Discover), personal check (which can be mailed with the impression), or arrange a payment plan to fit your needs.
The total cost of your mask will vary depending on the specific mask required (yes, we make more than one style of mask!), shipping preference, and any other special considerations (such as same day or next day turn around). Please contact us to determine billing/payment prior to mailing in your impression.

Step 5: Sending it all in

When the impression is complete, please pack for shipping as though you were sending a fragile artifact. Bubble wrap is great, just be careful not to wrap too tightly and distort the impression. It is impossible to understate the importance of shipping your impression carefully. We have no way of knowing the correct dimensions of your impression if it arrives damaged or misshapen. The fit and function of the mask is certain to be affected if the impression does not arrive at our office in the same condition that it came off the patients face.
Please contact Jeremy for the shipping address and anticipated turn around time.
