Swedish brain security technology corporation MIPS has continued its solution expansion by bringing force-dampening technologies to much more helmets in an work to help reduce brain injuries.
The core technology of all MIPs solutions addresses rotational forces and energies that are linked to brain injuries like concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
Decades of study and study went into its flagship MIPS-C2 system, which is a new item design and style that adds additional safety positive aspects to more helmet designs, thereby expanding the attain of the MIPS technology across much more brands and models.
What is the MIPS-F2 method?
The MIPS-F2 system is built on the regular MIPS low-friction layer that provides the essential 10-15 millimetres choute upholstered loveseat of omnidirectional movement in the two to 3 milliseconds following an effect.
A series of versatile retention organisms and nylon brackets are moulded into the EPP (expanded polypropylene), which allows the foam liner to move independent of the low-friction layer and outer shell. This results in at least ten% reduction in the damaging rotational forces, which come from oblique impacts.
‘Offering added protection’
Johan Thiel, CEO of MIPS, said: “MIPS now has a long history helping to improve brain safety and threat of injury in the cycling and snow sports communities.
“With a broader range of solutions, we can expand on that and make it so extra companies can simply and affordably incorporate MIPS into their existing designs… thereby supplying added protection against rotational motion to far more athletes of all abilities and ages.”
About brain injuries
• 2.five million men and women suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) every year
• 1.five million choute upholstered loveseat of these are admitted to hospital and
• TBI is the major trigger of death and disability in young adults.
The two items, MIPS-F2 and MIPS-E3 GlideWear, are to be released spring of this year, with numerous new and current helmet brand partners across the snow sports category.
