LEATT Heritage video: Episode 2, how the neck brace was born
Episode two of Leatt’s Heritage Video Series digs into the challenges of introducing the neck brace into the off-road market. With no precedent, no international safety standards, testing or design data to work with it truly was a ground-breaking moment. This video shows how the neck brace came into existence and has evolved over the years as well as busts the myth that neck braces are responsible for collarbone fractures. Find out why, straight from Dr Chris Leatt.
“I’ve got no qualms with taking a product off the market or just terminating its design and iterative process – if we believe that, that product is not safe and you wouldn’t put it on your child.” – Dr Chris Leatt
Starting from scratch, Dr Chris Leatt and the biomedical engineers at Leatt managed to create a piece of personal safety equipment which has now been proven to reduce the risk of the severe neck injuries by up to 89%* (*EMS Action sports Study).
