Accident statistics show that many injuries occur due to angled impacts to the head. In standard tests, the helmet is dropped vertically onto a flat surface. The results are helpful for measuring precise vertical impacts but far inferior for measuring the more realistic scenario of an angled impact.
The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet integrated, low-friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.
The revolutionary system has been scientifically proven to reduce rotational motion by absorbing and redirecting the energy and force transferred to the brain on impact, reducing the risk of minor or severe brain injuries.
The illustration reflects data collected using a finite element computer model, and measurements obtained from nine accelerometers in a Hybrid III crash test dummy head. The model illustrates strain in the brain from a similar angled impact when the dummy head is wearing a helmet without MIPS and a helmet with MIPS.
