  • Publication number: 20200178636
    Abstract: A helmet (1) comprising an energy absorbing layer (3), a relatively hard layer (2) that is harder than the energy absorbing layer (3) and is formed outward of the energy absorbing layer (3) and a plurality of outer plates (20) mounted on the outer surface of the relatively hard layer (2); wherein the outer plates (20) are mounted on the relatively hard layer (2) such that, under an impact to an outer plate (20), the outer plate (20) can slide across the relatively hard layer (2) and move relative to other outer plates (20); and a low friction interface is provided between the outer surface of the relatively hard layer (2) and at least a part of the surface of the outer plates (20) that is in contact with the outer surface of the relatively hard layer (2) under an impact to an outer plate (20).

  • Patent number: 8316512
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a locking device (2) for fixation of the position of an outer layers (4) relatively an inner layer (6) of a protective helmet (3), which protective helmet has a sliding layer (8) arranged between the outer layer and the inner layer, for facilitating displacement of the outer layer relatively the inner layer during an oblique impact towards the protective helmet. The locking device (2) comprises a layer-guiding member (10), that has an upper portion (12), which upper portion (12) is intended to be arranged in an opening (13) in the outer layer (4), and a resilient lower portion (16), extending from the upper portion (12), that in its free end (17) is arranged in connection to the inner layer (6). The present technology also relates to a protective helmet (3) comprising the locking device (2).

  • Patent number: 6658671
    Abstract: A protective helmet (1) has an outer shell (2) and an inner shell (3), the outer shell being displaceable relative to the inner shell by means of at last one sliding layer (4) arranged between the the outer shell and the inner shell. In the edge region of the helmet, the outer shell and the inner shell are interconnected by means of members (5), for absorbing energy on displacement of the outer shell on the inner shell. In this way, impact energy from an oblique impact against the helmet can be absorbed during displacement between the outer shell and the inner shell.

  • Patent number: 6520568
    Abstract: Method and device for protecting a person (2) traveling in a vehicle (1) by applying a protective arrangement the inside of the roof (4) of the vehicle (1). The inside of the roof (4) is equipped with an inner roof structure (5) in a place where the head (3) of the person (2) traveling in the vehicle is expected to make an impact in the event of an accident. The inner roof structure (5) is designed to guide the head (3) so that a flexion of the neck (6) of the person (2) traveling in the vehicle is initiated essentially simultaneously with the impact between the head (3) and the inside of the roof (4) during the accident. The device gives an improved protection of a person traveling in a vehicle (1), especially against head and neck injuries that occur when a person's head hits the inside of the roof (4) of the vehicle (1).
