Custom Lid...

I'm in need of help for a friend who has had a surgery (incision behind ear) and is in need of a new helmet. Most of our local shops do have the usual assortment of helmets, but none to my knowledge could help with the molding of a liner. Another friend of suggested a helmet with an inflatable bladder (my Google search turned up Scorpian and Bell) so I was wondering if any of you had first hand knowledge of these types of lids?
Thanks in advance,
OG

The incision is for a cochlial (sp?) implant. A miniature battery pack will be surgically inserted and will leave a bump behind the ear.

Thanks again....

So is it the style of cochlear implant that has a transmitter and microphone also behind his ear? Will he take that part off when he rides and it's just the receiver underneath his skin he's worried about? Maybe you could try a helmet with a fully removable liner that you could take out and modify or have an auto upholsterer modify based on your instructions. Otherwise if I recall Shoei seems to leave a big void around the ear in their helmets so he might want to try a Qwest and see if that's comfortable. Just some thoughts though. I think this is probably a very tiny niche market you're searching for.

remove the ear side liner, trim as needed, restitch, reinsert and ride
