The main area of focus is the prevention of neck injuries in persons wearing a crash helmet, for whatever purpose. The impetus for the project came from Dr. Leatt’s medical knowledge, his history as a motorcycle racer and the many neck injuries he has witnessed. The product not only has motor sport applications but can be used by anyone wearing a crash helmet as a form of protection.
The inventor, Dr. Chris Leatt, oversees the Research and Development, ensuring that the Leatt-Brace® remains the gold standard for neck protection.
