Stand W3: HEADS ITN: University College Dublin
From the young school child cycling to school, to the daring, highspeed Formula 1 motorcyclist, helmet safety resonates with all ages and all walks of life. Whether used for recreational activity or for extreme sports, it is in our interests as participants and spectators that helmet safety standards continue to evolve and improve. The scientific goal of the HEADS Innovative Training Network, a Horizon 2020 funded project that is being coordinated by UCD, is to improve the understanding of head impact injury and to design new helmet standard test methods that recognise the influence of rotational kinematics. This will lead to improved helmets and a reduction in the severity of injuries and the numbers of fatalities. Our objective will be achieved through a combination of computational simulations of real-life accidents, experimental and computational investigation of injury thresholds, and design of new helmet certification tests. The Network’s industry partners manufacture high quality helmets for equestrian sports, cyclist and Formula 1 motorcyclists and its academic partners are leaders in this field of research. Visit the HEADS stand to find out more about our research and to explore some of the techniques we are using to advance our understanding of head injury and helmet safety.
