Impact Detect integrated technology improves the safety of construction personnel through integrating impact monitoring smart sensors in helmets.
Engineered to be integrated into virtually any helmet. Impact Detect’s smart sensor technology is small and virtually weightless and can be used to improve the safety of workers across construction and industry.
Impact Detect for construction helmets
Construction workers are often in danger of head impacts, such as from falling debris. Whilst construction helmets themselves help mitigate serious injury, Impact Detect is able to intelligently monitor and detect impacts from within the helmet, with ID inside site managers and workers alike will be able to determine the severity of any incident and react accordingly. Furthermore the data can be used for insurance purposes where needed.
Severity of Impact
A worker suffering a blow to their helmet has little way of knowing what damage to their head and brain may have been sustained beyond guesswork based on how they feel and the condition of their helmet. Impact Detect can alert users of the severity of the impact and offer next steps such as, to seek medical attention or advise a helmet replacement may be required.
Many mild traumatic brain injuries (MTBIs) go unreported and untreated. Impact Detect technology is able to alert the user when an impact to the head that may potentially cause an MTBI occurs. Allowing the user to seek medical attention for further investigation.
Instant Data Download
When an impact over threshold is detected in an Impact Detect device, it is stored and becomes instantly available for download via BLE using our Impact Detect mobile application technology.
Impact Detect systems are created using low powered BLE technology that is able to connect with our mobile app systems to create SOS alerts to pre-set emergency contacts in the instance an impact over a set threshold is detected.
Frequently asked questions about
Impact Detect for construction helmets.
How does Impact Detect work?
The Impact Detect technology can be integrated within new or existing helmet models, usually within the helmet liner. The Impact Detect technology is continuously monitoring for impacts over a set threshold, when such an impact occurs, the Impact Detect sensor records the impact data ready for download via Bluetooth.
Impact Detect have produced several mobile based applications that allow impact data to be instantly download via an app, or downloaded at a later date. The app systems are able to notify users of impact severity based on the implementation of pre-set impact severity thresholds, or send live user impact alerts.
What is an mTBI?
An mTBI is a mild traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. There may be signs of injury to the head, such as bruising or cuts, or there may be no visible injury.
Why are MTBIs concerning?
Mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) can cause changes in brain activity, leading to headaches, fatigue, disorientation, and irritability.
The frequency of mTBI plays a significant role in injuries and symptoms, for example, someone who has experienced multiple head injuries may experience life-altering symptoms, such as neurodegenerative diseases and depression.
How does Impact Detect integrate in a helmet?
Wearers would never even know Impact Detect technology was integrated within their helmet unless they were made aware. The technology is small and super light weight, it can be placed within a helmet liner and is battery powered, requiring no charging or wiring in its lifespan. It really is as simple as ‘fit and forget’.
