Swedish brain protection brand, MIPS, has announced Guardio as its first partner in the industrial safety helmet industry.
By partnering with MIPS to create the Armet helmet, Guardio is said to be poised to build a safer environment for workers around the world.
The MIPS brain protection system is reportedly designed to reduce the rotational motion transmitted to the brain from angled impacts to the head. Rotational motion can affect the brain and increase the risk for minor and severe brain injuries. MIPS’ added protection system has been reportedly proven to reduce the rotational motion when implemented in a helmet by absorbing and redirecting energies and forces otherwise transmitted to the brain.
Max Strandwitz, CEO of MIPS, said: “We are very excited about the partnership with Guardio which means that we now can add protection to safety helmets as well.
“This is a new category for us but a category that MIPS have been looking at for a long time. Guardio is a partner that shares our values and we are looking forward to when the helmet will be released on the market.”
The Guardio Armet MIPS helmet will be available in June 2019.
