Helmets today are only designed to protect you from severe impact—the industry standard “Death Blow” level.
Current helmets can prevent skull fracture during the hardest of hits, but they do practically nothing to help reduce brain injury during more common and less severe impacts.
There is a missing piece in helmet technology—providing protection for the smaller, but more common, impacts. HIPtec is filling that void by engineering superior impact absorbing interior systems within the world’s leading helmets. So, not only do HIPtec interiors help exceed the level of protection required by current industry standards for severe impact, they also help reduce potential damage from smaller and repetitive impacts at a far superior level than currently available.
HIPtec’s work is ongoing with scientists and doctors at the leading medical centers to better understand the effects of impacts to the head so that our technology can do the most it can to help reduce damage to the brain. We then study multitudes of impact situations in specific sports to increase the effectiveness of head protection where it is needed most.
Preventable head injuries should not be the reason you have to stop, or never start, enjoying sport. Don’t let head trauma be what sidelines you. With HIPtec, your head gets the protection it needs—not only to prevent skull fracture during the biggest of hits, but also to help reduce the chance of brain injury from the smaller ones.
