It took planning, and it wasn’t without its fair share of hiccups but earlier this week MitiGatorinc.com was able to setup its CADEX drop tester to start testing helmets equipped with the MitiGator Cushioning System. The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) has very high standards for helmet testing. One of which is they require for helmet testing that the drop tester be able to measure on three axises, instead of the standard Uni-axial like normal machines.
The CADEX drop tester will perform this and measure impact forces that are occurring on helmets that have not been equipped with the MitiGator Cushioning System and then we will document the results. Then we will be able to show you how the MitiGator Cushioning System will be able to help absorb the impacts and vibrations that typical sports helmet foam isn’t able to. The MitiGator is designed to absorb and dissipate the energy from these extreme impacts that typical football, baseball, hockey, and auto racing athletes experience. This revolutionary material has already been proven by being in service in over 85,000 military vehicles and numerous other extreme applications.
The MitiGator™ Technology is an engineered cushioning system designed to protect people and equipment from these assaults and to allow them to continue to perform their jobs or enjoy their leisure time. The MitiGator™ uses patented air control technology working with over 4,000 surfaces per square foot to dissipate energy before it is transmitted to the body and thus help alleviate the problems.
