MIT’s Aero/Astro Department are designing a new type of helmet
and head protection to reduce traumatic brain injury and concussions.
MIT is currently working on this technology by developing helmets lined
with fluid channels.

This newer technology is being created first for the military, then football
players and then other athletic competitors.

Eventually you’ll see it in racing helmets, bike helmets, ski helmets and other recreational helmets where the hope is users will be better protected against concussions and more serious injuries.
