Helmet Examination

A helmet examination could provide the following information:

  • Confirmation of helmet identification and age.
  • Compliance with UK standards.
  • Defects.
  • Collision / impact related damage.
  • Damage due to neglect or wear.
  • Gain an understanding of the position and magnitude of the impact.
The examination could confirm whether the helmet was likely to have been worn correctly when the collision occurred.

The examination could explain why a helmet came off during a collision.

The position and magnitude of the damage to the helmet could be used by medical / neurological experts to better understand the mechanism of a brain injury.
