Concussion Reduction Helmet
Technology Overview Wayne State University Researchers have designed a football helmet to reduce the likelihood of a cerebral concussion to the wearer during blunt impact with another player or the ground. The helmet shell and interior padding are tuned using a computer model of the head and helmet to reduce the strain experienced by the bra...

New Vehicle Roof Interior Design Concepts for Occupant Neck Protection During Rollover Crashes
Researchers at the Bioengineering Center at WSU have developed an interior roof design that reduces the coefficient of friction (COF) between the head and the roof or reduces the COF between the padding and its supporting structure. Rollover crashes are the most hazardous crashes to the human cervical spine. It has been reported that the neck is th...

Omni-Directional Angular Acceleration Reduction Helmet
Wayne State researchers have designed a new device to reduce the head angular acceleration of the helmet wearer during blunt impact. This technology introduces a helmet shell design which rotates with respect to head by the insertion of a thin layer of elastically or plastically yielding material between the outer and inner shells, depending on the...
