Ever wondered if you can have your damaged helmet fixed or certified for reuse? Here’s what you need to know:


While The Helmet Doctors can identify and measure different levels of helmet damage with our advanced laser scanning technology, we never endorse any damage as suitable for reuse. According to helmet manufacturing guidelines, any structural damage compromises the helmet’s integrity and safety.


Our cutting-edge laser scanning technology detects defects that are 100,000 times more precise than the naked eye, revealing invisible issues that affect your helmet’s effectiveness when needed.


We understand some helmets may be expensive or hold sentimental value. If you wish to have your helmet reassessed by the manufacturer, we fully support you in this process. We’ll provide a scientific report directly to the manufacturer to assist them in making an informed decision about potentially re-certifying your helmet for reuse.


However, please note that due to cost considerations, this process is typically worthwhile only for high-end helmets and if the manufacturer deems the damage fixable.
