Paraclete’s product development is directed by research and innovation solutions for the aviation industry. We have the only independent Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the United States Army Aeromedical Research Laboratories (USAARL). This page shares research provided by USAARL and others that we reference.
Below are two slow-motion videos that show the effects of an improperly versus properly worn aviation helmet. Many may find it more comfortable to wear a loose or unfastened chin strap. Others may wear a loose nape or a helmet without a nape. The improperly worn video shows in a dynamic sled test the possible results of such actions. The result is the helmet coming off the user’s head after striking the anthropomorphic test device (ATD, test-dummy).
