We witnessed a moving and inspirational story of how and why Leatt came to be in episode one. However, the problem solving continues in episode two as it explores how the neck brace model has evolved and advanced over the years.
The Leatt neck brace is a product, designed to reduce the risk of severe neck injuries. This episode of the Heritage Video Series illustrates the challenges of introducing a product into the market with no international safety standards and no prior testing or design data. Starting from scratch, Dr Chris Leatt and the biomedical engineers at Leatt managed to create a piece of personal safety equipment which has now been proven to reduce the risk of the severe neck injuries by up to 89%* (*EMS Action sports Study).
