A helmet that is growing with the head measurement of children at the age of three up to twelve years.
Due to the constantly growing head of children parents have to buy a new helmet for their kids every few years which is expensive and inefficient. Designing a helmet that is simply growing with the kids head size not only solves this issue but also saves resources and costs. The most important think a helmet has to do is to protect the users head. That's why we improved the impact material from styrofoam to d30. A smart material that locks together to absorb energy at an impact after it returns to it's flexible state. This project was based on our ergonomics course in Gmünd where I learned a lot about human proportions and percentiles.
