Mips Technology. MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System which is a leading slip-plane technology inside the helmet designed to reduce rotational forces that can result from certain impacts. MIPS has been developed by leading brain surgeons and scientists to reduce the rotational forces on the brain caused by angled impacts to the head.
Is owned by Wave. The technology was created in 2001 by members of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm Sweden. Total number of brands.
For MIPS all they will say is any helmet equipped with MIPS is at least 10 better at handling rotational impact than the same helmet without MIPS.
For certain impacts the MIPS BPS can reduce harmful forces transmitted to the brain. Widely licensed and cost-effective solutions for embedded and multimedia applications. MIPS is a form of slip plane technology meaning that a MIPS helmet is constructed from two layers that rotate against each other mimicking the rotation of the brains own cerebrospinal fluid which is the bodys natural defense against oblique impacts. For MIPS all they will say is any helmet equipped with MIPS is at least 10 better at handling rotational impact than the same helmet without MIPS.
