Scooter Helmets

Scooter helmet: A well-known but often neglected device designed to protect the head of a scooter riders. Scooter helmets decrease the risk of head injuries (traumatic brain damage) by about 85%. However, only about 18% of riders in the World use helmets all or most of the time. Universal helmet use could prevent an average of 500 bicycle-related deaths each year in the US alone.

A scooter helmet is a type of protective headgear used by scooter riders. The primary goal of a scooter helmet is motorcycle safety - to protect the rider's head during impact, thus preventing or reducing head injury or saving the rider's life. Some helmets provide additional conveniences, such as ventilation, face shields, ear protection, intercom etc.

Motorcyclists are at high risk in traffic crashes. A 2008 systematic review examined studies on motorcycle riders who had crashed and looked at helmet use as an intervention. The review concluded that helmets reduce the risk of head injury by around 69% and death by around 42%. Some studies have suggested that helmets may protect against facial injury but they have no effect on neck injury, more research is required for a conclusive answer.
