MIPS Developed in cooperation with Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institute, Sweden.  

The new MIPS technology mimics one of the safety systems which already exist in the human head. 

When the head is subjected to an oblique impact, the brain can slide along a membrane on the inner 

surface of the skull, which reduces the forces transmitted to the brain. This protective feature has, 

with the MIPS technology, been incorporated into the helmet. In a helmet equipped with MIPS technology,

the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When subjected to an oblique impact, the 

low friction layer allows a small rotation of the shell relative to the liner. Experimental tests shows

a significant reduction of the forces to the brain. 

Accident statistics show that the most common accident occurs in an oblique impact to the head,

resulting in a rotation of the head andbrain.

The brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts than radial impacts. However, according to the helmet test 

regulations, the helmets are dropped vertically onto the impact surface, resulting in a radial force to the

head. This is why helmets today have good protective properties for vertical impacts while the protection

is not optimized for oblique impacts. MIPS AB has therefore developed MIPS technology to provide 

substantially increased protection  against oblique impacts.
