Selection of Protective Helmets Based on the Scanning System



Elasizer srl, Milan, Italy


This publication presents the results of creating a service for individual on-line selection and customization of protective helmets for active sports and recreation. The service is based on the use of developed and patented hardware and software solutions that enable creation of three-dimensional shapes of the surface of a client's head, the inner surface of a helmet and the subsequent virtual combination of a client's head and helmet in order to calculate the vector of parameters of matching the anthropometric features of a client's head.
As a means of generating the primary data on the surface of a head, a mobile phone or a developed hardware scanner can be used. The service also provides an objective selection of the best fitting helmet with consideration of the individual subjective preferences of a client and analysis of a client's experience in using helmets. After selecting the best fitting commercially available helmet for a specific client, a helmet can be adapted using a specially designed inlay of a variable thickness in a helmet.
The adaption of a helmet ensures its maximum conformity to the shape of a head. Adaption is carried out on the basis of a special, inexpensive and easy-to-use helmet inlay. The thickness of the inlay is calculated automatically that ensures the best possible conformity with a customer, providing comfort and safety. The conducted experimental studies, as well as the reviews of customers who participated in testing the system, confirmed the desirability and accuracy of the selection of helmets based on the developed technology.
