• The rigid Cowl transmits the energy from the high-velocity rifle round's impact around and past the user's head and into an attached rear plate in the user's body armor. (patents.com)

  • Today we learned that U of T researcher Jessica Dennis found helmet laws do nothing to reduce rates of hospitalization for head injury. (ibiketo.ca)
  • 1. A Cowl, consisting of a flexible and hollow container the interior of which is divided into baffles filled with shear-thickening fluid, that covers the user from the top of the head/helmet area down to the user's upper back, and is attached to a user's helmet and to the rear plate of the user's body armor.

  • When a soldier sticks his head out of cover, his helmet protects him from shrapnel and small-arms fire. (patents.com)
  • Armoring of the helmet (typically with Kevlar, Twaron and/or Dyneema) prevents such projectiles from penetrating the helmet and wounding the soldier in the head. (patents.com)
  • This is partly to save weight, and partly because even if the helmet can protect against such a round, the energy delivered by the round's impact will snap the wearer's head back at high velocity, causing severe or fatal injury (typically, damage to or severing of the cervical spine, brain concussion, and/or muscle trauma).

  • The football helmet is a piece of protective equipment used mainly in American football and Canadian football. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many sources give credit for the creation of the helmet to James Naismith, while other sources credit U.S. Naval Academy Midshipman Joseph M. Reeves (later to become the "Father of Carrier Aviation"), who had a protective device for his head made out of mole skin to allow him to play in the 1893 Army-Navy game. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reeves had been advised by a Navy doctor that another kick to his head would result in "instant insanity" or even death, so he commissioned an Annapolis shoemaker to make him a helmet out of leather. (wikipedia.org)
  • Included with the plastic helmet came plastic face mask, which allowed the helmet to protect the entire head. (wikipedia.org)
  • They would argue that this helps cushion the head more than any other helmet in the market. (wikipedia.org)
  • The head band includes a brow band section, side band sections and a neck band section. (google.com)
  • The neck band portion is usually provided with means enabling adjustment of the circumferential length of the head band, i.e. adjustment to different head sizes. (google.com)
  • In spite of ample literature pointing to rotational and combined impact dosage being key contributors to head and neck injury, boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA) padding is still designed to primarily reduce cranium linear acceleration. (nih.gov)
  • Results showed that the total exposure on the outside left side of the head was slightly higher than exposure to the outside center, and exposure to these locations was significantly higher than the outside right location. (acc.org)
  • Protective measures from radiation exposure include distance, shielding and time, which are mostly operator dependent. (acc.org)
  • A gas bag module, in particular for head protection in case of a side impact, has an elongated mounting housing ( 10 ) having two opposing side walls ( 12, 14 ) running spaced apart from each other and a cross-piece ( 16 ) connecting the side walls ( 12, 14 ), and has a gas bag ( 20 ) accommodated in folded state in the mounting housing ( 10 ).

  • These data indicate that dysregulation of STRA6 and impaired retinoid metabolismare involved in the pathophysiology of PEX syndrome and that the variant rs7173049-G, which represents the first common variant at the broad LOXL1 locus without allele effect reversal, mediates a protective effect through upregulation of STRA6 in ocular tissues.

  • In the art of optical memories which optically record and read information, in recent years, with speed-up of computer processing and development of multimedia, high-density devices which are capable of recording an extremely large volume of information are demanded, and in order to comply with the demand, a near field optical recording technique is suggested. (google.ca)
  • We further show that the protective rs7173049-G allele correlates with increased tissue expression levels of ISLR2 and STRA6 and that both genes are significantly downregulated in tissues of PEX patients together with other key components of the STRA6 receptor-driven retinoic acid signaling pathway.
