ABOUT
PROJECT TIMELINE
American football has the highest casualties of concussion. Concussion is essentially the acceleration and deceleration of the brain. It is primarily linked to angular acceleration. Injuries are caused by energy being dissipated inside the head rather than the helmet padding. The challenge was to select correct materials that can improve the current helmet at both professional and college level. Current helmet manufacturers are working on improving helmet designs and haven't looked at neck protection. The restrictions placed on college football level players, allow a design which consists of neck protection. For professional athletes having neck protection is considered "aesthetically unpleasing". They want to look good whilst playing. The two different helmets published are targeted for each level respective of their influential factors.  This project was for my final (3rd) year Beng Mechancial engineering course.  The contest I am participating in is Project Of The Year during the academic year 2015/2016.
