Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
The number of concussive incidents in junior hockey leagues alone is alarming. Overall, hockey’s injury rate is double that of football's. This may be attributed to the prevalence of body-checking.
"Since head-protective precautions are so crucial, I decided that there needed to be a way to maximize a hockey helmet’s effectiveness," said an inventor from Melbourne, Ontario, Canada.
"Conventional helmets tend to shift on the head upon impact, which raises the risk of concussion. My design helps prevent this danger." The inventor has created a prototype of his idea.
Ideal for both junior and pro hockey leagues, the CORNELIUS CHIN STRAP provides optimal stability of a hockey helmet. By preventing the helmet from shifting sideways, up or down upon impact, it helps avoid concussions, which promotes safety and peace of mind. The strap is adjustable and easy to use.
The original design was submitted to the Toronto office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
