Scientists at Louisiana State University have designed a helmet that will protect players from the coronavirus with their new cooling technology, know-how.
New Helmet To Protect Players From Coronavirus
Scientists at Louisiana State University in the United States have partnered with a new technology to help protect players from the Corona Virus in partnership with a Louisiana sports technology startup. He has created a customizable Air Circulation Device specifically for Athletic Helmets worn by players, in which the fan fans will help keep the players’ helmets cool from the inside.
LSU players are currently testing this new device. This technique will help them to keep their head cool while playing on the field. This will allow them to secure their helmets and additional COVID-19 safety gears (additional Safety Gears for Covid-19) for longer. Currently, scientists at the Louisiana State University have patented this new ‘Helmets Cooling and Circulation’ technique. This technique is also effective because it can be used not only with the players’ helmets but also with any brand of helmets available in the market.
The characteristics of helmets that are completely different
The most useful aspect of this ‘helmet cooling and circulation’ technique is that it can also be used with other protective gear such as visors (face shield) lenses and face guards. However, its main purpose is to protect the COVID-19 virus players while playing on the field.
In fact, wearing such safety gears causes haze on the face shield during breathing and exhaling, which makes players difficult to see. Not only this, if the body and head temperature are not reduced while playing, but it can also increase the overall body temperature, which can potentially lead to fatigue and dangerous health conditions such as heat stroke.
Corona changed the way of safety gears
In fact, due to Coronavirus, there have been changes in the safety equipment that keeps the players safe on the field. On the football field, players are now using full-face plastic devices to stop breathing close to each other’s faces and to avoid droplets coming out of the nose, mouth.
But LSU’s technology can become the standard protective gear for close contact sports such as football. The technology makes airflow easier in helmets. Helmets are usually designed for safety and not for comfort. Therefore, excessive heat and moisture buildup in the helmet is a common problem.
How does this new technology work
This new technology allows air inside the helmet to cool the temperature inside the helmet, using a flexible tube attached to a battery-powered set and the wings fitted to it to suck air inside the helmet. These tubes can be easily set behind the head above the face according to their requirement.
The material of N95 Filter Mask Materials can also be added as an air filter for greater protection from coronavirus. When this technique is used with a pull-faced mask or plastic shield, the ‘cooling and circulation’ technique creates a positive pressure environment around the athlete’s face so that no viruses or toxic particles from outside enter the helmet. Could have done.
Meanwhile, airflow due to airflow is designed to protect the eyes of the athlete from drying out. There are also ventilation points to make this helmet cooler technology more comfortable. This ‘helmet cooling and circulation’ technology can last up to eight hours with a portable power pack allowing players to wear their helmets throughout the game or practice.
The American football helmet market is about 150 million annually, which adds up to about $ 57 million by adding a college team helmet. According to the National Collegiate Athletic AssociationA or NCAA, more than 1 million participants in high school football teams, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations, this new technology can be commercially successful.
