The Insight sensor provides critical data and feedback about helmet impacts. This data supports a greater understanding of the potential brain injuries that can happen in a collision as well as the effect on the condition of their helmet and whether a replacement may be advisable. Each of the unique capabilities of the Insight sensor can be specifically tailored to support the unique requirements of any sport/function:
IMPACT DETECTION AND SIGNALLING
The Insight sensor can detect the force transferred within a helmet that has been subject to an external impact. The sensor records the impact magnitude and the force transfer to the wearer, as well as the time and location, automatically triggering a call to be made via the app.
BRAIN ROTATION INSIGHT
Developed alongside leading research, the sensor can identify the rotational motion that can be transferred to the brain during a collision. This helps to highlight the likelihood of concussion or Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (MTBIs) by paramedics and medical staff.
Not only can large impacts cause a helmet to be less effective in the future, but repeated smaller impacts can have similar detrimental effects on its protective properties. Where this is not typically noticed by the wearer, the Insight sensor can monitor the integrity of the
helmet over time and provide alerts when it predicts deterioration below a pre-set threshold.
COLLISION DATA REPORTS
The Insight sensor is able to record and analyse impact parameters such as direction, force and rotational acceleration
in order to provide first responders (eg. paramedics) with detailed information about with detailed information about the wearer’s likely brain injuries following a collision. This additional information can support faster and more reliable triage, diagnosis and care pathway decisions especially where there are multiple crash victims in differing conditions.
Sensors are sealed for life, fully waterproof and protected against the effects of dust and moisture. Cased in patented proprietary materials that ensures the electronics will survive all typical impact conditions to provide valuable insights after the event.
