Cyclist builds foldable helmet

About the solution

The inventor, who is a cyclist, had an accident and got in bad shape. He was also driven to develop this product because his daughter couldn’t fit her helmet into a school rucksack.

“Some years back, I was involved in an accident. I was hit by a car and thrown off my bike at pretty high speed. I flew through the air (stylishly) and landed head first on a kerb stone (a bit less stylishly). I broke my shoulder, smashed my chin, broke a couple of ribs... and if it wasn't for my helmet I would almost certainly have died... or been seriously brain damaged”, he explained.

The Morpher helmet folds and unfolds quickly and simply, folding in half when is not being used, allowing the cyclists to carry the helmet more easily and prevent injuries.

The helmet exceeds all relevant safety standards and its technology is already patented.

In order to develop the product, Jeff launched a crowdfunding campaign, and now it is being mass manufactured.

“When it's not fatal the injuries caused by brain damage can often be too awful to contemplate. Victims of brain injuries often spend years in a coma unable to communicate in any way or they lose the ability to live normal lives and can need constant care. More often than not, head injuries affect not just the victim but whole families”, the inventor noted.

The helmet can be bought online, and has already won several awards.

关于发明者

Jeff Woolf, born in UK, in 1959, created Morpher Helmet, in 2011, a foldable bike helmet. After making a research, he realised many cyclist didn't use helmets because it wasn't very practical, and by not doing this, they would be more susceptible to brain injuries.
