During the World SuberBike weekend in Assen (the WSBK), our team was present and ready to collect some valuable, first-hand information from bikers from all over the world, to further our research and the development of our HDSL: Helmet Device for Saving Lives.
Our team, containing Bart Groothuijze, Rob Burow and Bart Balm, joined forces with Innofest, Zero to One and the TT-Festival. Together we interviewd a lot of experienced bikers and bike-enthousiasts about what they believe makes an helmet safe. And the results were staggering.
The people we interviewed were all experienced bikers. They were subjected to 18 questions varying from “What kind of bike do you use?” to “What are the six elements that make a safe helmet?“. But the question “Do you think your helmet is safe?” gave us the most insights. Mostly because we asked this exact same question twice: once right at the start of the questionnaire and once after we told them about the six elements that makes an helmet safe.
79% percent of the the interviewees answered that they believed their helmet was safe to us; they trusted their lives to their helmets in case of an accident. But after we told them about the six elements that make en helmet safe, the number of people that still thought their helmet was safe, dropped by a staggering 20%!
This, in itself, is not a fact to be proud of. But it does, however, underlines the importance of our work. And for that, we are very greatful.
VIDEO PRODUCED BY INNOFEST
Innofest produced this increddible video (in Dutch) about our research, underlining why it is so important to spread awareness about safe helmets. Because, as you know: the right knowledge makes all the difference.
