Bicyclist helmets are on the rise, and are proving to be a lifesaver in the world of motorized transportation.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, helmet use among riders in the United States reached an all-time high in 2014, rising from less than 1 percent to almost 10 percent.
The average age of the riders in this country is only 38 years old, and the vast majority of them are men, and many of them don’t wear helmets at all.
But if you’re not a bicycle rider, it may be time to get on board with the idea of wearing a helmet, according to the head of the Bicycle Helmet Research and Development Institute (BHREI), Andrew Fauci.
“I think the helmet is a tool that can be used to reduce the risks associated with motor vehicle collisions,” Fauces said.
“What it does is prevent crashes, so people can go around safely and be more aware of the hazards of their surroundings.”
The way helmets work is they basically absorb the impact, and as they do that they absorb the energy that hits the helmet, and then they also absorb that energy and convert it into kinetic energy, so it reduces the impact energy and increases the energy you can apply to the crash,” he said.BHNEI’s Faucs and his colleagues are working on developing a new type of helmet called a rotatable visor.
The new rotatable helmet is made of a specially designed material, designed to absorb and redirect the kinetic energy of a collision, and also to absorb some of the impact forces as well.
Faucius says the rotatable technology can reduce collisions by a factor of two or three, depending on the design of the helmet and the rider.
Bike helmets have been on the market for over 50 years, but until recently, only a small percentage of American riders were using them.
A new study, however, suggests that the trend is on the up.
According the study, American riders are more likely to be wearing helmets than ever before, and they’re also wearing them more often.
The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Michigan and the University at Albany, surveyed 1,093 adults between the ages of 18 and 65 who were randomly assigned to one of two groups: one group that wore a helmet and one group didn’t.
The researchers found that between 2001 and 2014, the percentage of men wearing helmets increased from 3.7 percent to 12.1 percent.
Women in the study wore helmets at a rate of 8.1 to 11.4 percent.
“So this is a trend that we’re seeing among American males. “
In terms of the actual percentage of males wearing helmets, it’s actually much smaller,” said Faucci.
“So this is a trend that we’re seeing among American males.
So there’s a lot of evidence showing that wearing a protective helmet is associated with a reduction in the rate of motor vehicle crashes.”
The researchers suggest that the new research, along with other studies, will help us make safer decisions about the use of helmets.
The BHREIs researchers are also working on an educational campaign that will focus on the safety of bicyclists, and this is one of the reasons why they’re working on the helmet issue.
“It’s important for our students and for us to educate them about the dangers of wearing helmets and to promote safer riding,” Fauris said.
The American Bicycle Helmet Association has made helmets a priority since the 1990s, and Faucie said the organization is working on making helmets a part of their education campaigns.
The organization is also working with state transportation agencies to develop a helmet safety course that will be available for schools and colleges to use.
Fauci believes that, with more research, the new helmet will be used as a safer alternative to a helmet.
“We know that there’s no way that a person wearing a bicycle helmet is going to be safer,” Fruces said, adding that helmet use is a personal choice.
“And, so I think this is really important for parents and for the children.”
