Putting a Lid on Concussions - Materials Testing and a New Helmet Design
Abstract:I have come up with a scientific method using electronics to explore improved materials for use in construction of helmets for sports impacts. The results of these tests have been applied to a new prototype helmet. Testing with the same equipment used for materials analysis has proved my helmet to be a superior solution over helmets currently being sold, which results in less sports concussions.
