Did you know that a properly fitted helmet can dramatically decrease the risk of serious injury, such as concussion? A correct, secured and properly fitted helmet can help to protect your brain by absorbing the force from a crash or fall.
Use the following checks to see if your helmet fits properly:
• Shake your head to ensure the helmet doesn’t move around
• Helmet covers the top of the forehead
• Side straps are snug
• Chin strap is tight is enough to only fit one finger between the strap and chin
For more information about concussion prevention and helmet safety, speak with your health care provider.
