GuardianHelmets are B.R.A.I.N. First Certified soft protective helmets and scored very well on all our criteria for traumatic brain injury risk reduction ~Steven Schwartz, UCLA
Thousand Oaks, CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
GuardianHelmets.Com is pleased to announce the awarding of the “B.R.A.I.N. First Certification™” for its range of protective headgear. The B.R.A.I.N. First Certification™ is an industry-leading standard which was developed in collaboration with top United States Medical School Research Centers including The University of California, Los Angeles, Michigan State University, The University of Southern California, The University of Wisconsin and The University of North Carolina. "Our biometric laboratory studies found that GuardianHelmets.Com soft helmets demonstrated high scores across all B.R.A.I.N. First™ Soft Helmet Certification Criteria," said Steven Schwartz, MD, UCLA.
The B.R.A.I.N.First Certification™ was developed with the aim of improving brain safety in at risk medical and special needs populations, using biometric certification standards for effective head protection. The certification also aims to reduce incidents of concussion and create a national brain safety registry. Guardian Helmets' uniquely designed protective caps were ideally positioned to be awarded the certification.
As part of the accreditation process GuardianHelmets.Com protective helmets satisfied all of the certification criteria:
- Attenuation of Impact
Proper use of this product reduces the force of impact to the head during trauma 20-60%
- Spatial Coverage
Covers temporal, frontal, occipital and coronal areas of the head
- No exposed components that could injure a helmeted or non-helmeted individual.
- Functional Retention System
Provides a chin strap which secures the equipment to the head in a durable and reliable manner
Is sufficiently durable: less than 1% reduction in effectiveness after 3-4 months of daily wear
Mike Juels, chief executive officer of GuardianHelmets.Com, said, "Concussions and traumatic brain injuries are a widespread and serious problem in at risk medical and special needs populations. As a result, we felt it was critical that we take an evidence-based approach to testing and proving that our helmets are effective in reducing risk. We were thrilled to get the B.R.A.I.N. First Certification™ and be validated by top experts in traumatic brain injury.”
GuardianHelmets.Com. intends to capitalize on the awarding of this certification to further develop its reach in the medical, special needs markets. B.R.A.I.N. First™ states that there is no known biometric threshold for concussion. This means that no one knows the minimum trauma that causes concussion with any regularity. Thus, No Product Prevents Concussion. However, decreasing forces to the human head theoretically reduces the risk of concussion. GuardianHelmets.Com are an excellent choice for traumatic brain injury risk reduction strategies.
