How Laser Scanning Ensures Helmet Integrity

Curious about the advanced technology behind helmet safety?


Explore the cutting-edge techniques at The Helmet Doctors on!


At The Helmet Doctors, we’re all about pushing the boundaries of helmet safety with state-of-the-art laser scanning technology. Let’s delve into the science behind it:


Shearography: Developed in 1973, Shearography uses lasers to detect tiny surface deformities in objects without physical contact. It’s like creating a detailed map of a helmet’s outer skin, pinpointing any potential weaknesses caused by heat, stress, or vibrations.


Holography: Originally a research tool, holography found practical applications in industry thanks to advancements in laser technology. By recording wavefronts and reconstructing them, holography allows us to visualize and analyze helmet integrity in real-time, ensuring precise measurements of any structural changes.


Interferometry: Invented in the late 19th century, interferometry measures slight changes in wave patterns, crucial for detecting micron-level shifts in helmet materials. This technique helps us maintain the highest standards of safety by ensuring helmets meet rigorous performance criteria.


Combining these techniques into holographic interferometry, we achieve unparalleled accuracy in assessing helmet structural integrity. This ensures that every helmet scanned at The Helmet Doctors meets or exceeds safety standards, protecting motorcyclists and motorsport enthusiasts from preventable injuries.
