Optimization of Impact Diverting Membrane on Bicycle Helmet

Head Injury Prevention (HIP) Lab at Simon Fraser University in collaboration with Shield-X Technology Inc. had previously developed an impact diverting mechanism in the form of a thin multi-layered-membrane. The technology has been successfully integrated onto the exterior of a football helmet (external version) to reduce linear and rotational acceleration experienced during impact to the head. The research will focus mainly on how to adopt the technology by adding it into the interior of a single-impact helmet such as bicycle helmet without changing the exterior appearance of the helmet.
