Helmet Technology

PDT and Mississippi State University teamed up to optimize football helmets to protect athletes from concussions. This technology is founded upon bio-inspired design principles to reduce the amount of energy that travels to the brain due to impacts.

In February 2014, Fox News documented much of the research taking place around this project. For more information on the bio-inspired design, check out the following articles:
