MIPS - the smart helmet system
MIPS - short for "Multi Directional Impact Protection System" - is a safety system for helmets, which is intended to protect against impacts with different directions of movement or force. These different directions of force are generated by impacts that hit the helmet at an angle.
HOW DOES THE MIPS SYSTEM WORK?
The idea for the MIPS system comes from the human brain. To protect it, there is a fluid between the brain and the cranial bone. When the head is hit, the resulting rotational force is reduced by minimal movement of this fluid layer and the force is not transferred to the brain.
The MIPS is, so to speak, an imitation of this layer: The outer shell of the helmet is fitted with a movable second shell which lies directly against the head.
