HeadSaver Soft Head Protector Impact Test

HeadSaver soft helmet has been impact tested and validated to reduce the magnitude of impact forces from accidental head collisions. The impact tests were carried by MTS Laboratory (Melbourne Testing Services Pty. Ltd.) in Australia.  

A specially designed test rig was constructed to conduct the impact tests in three impact orientations: frontal, lateral and posterior. A fibreglass mannequin was used to provide support to the soft HeadSaver soft helmet during testing.  A mass of 2.3 kg was released at a distance of 0.4 m, 0.08 m, 0.12 m, 0.16 m and 0.20m away from the contact surface.  

Based on the recorded peak impact forces and the corresponding impact energies, the energy absorbed versus impact energy were calculated. For the purpose of comparison, the impact measurements were taken both with and without the HeadSaver soft helmet.

  1. Frontal Impact Test (with HeadSaver soft helmet):  53% reduction in the peak impact force.
  2. Lateral Impact Test (with HeadSaver soft helmet):  56% reduction in the peak impact force.
  3. Posterior Impact Test (with HeadSaver soft helmet):  50% reduction in the peak impact force.

HeadSaver Impact Tests summary:  For the range of impact tests conducted, lower peak impact forces were observed with the HeadSaver soft helmet, when compared to impact tests conducted without the HeadSaver soft helmet.
