TODAY’S PATENT – LOW PROFILE PROTECTIVE HELMET
The Low Profile Protective Helmet was Hosea Smith (Corydon, KY) on the 22nd of November, 2011, and bearing patent number US8060951B2.
This invention relates generally to protective helmets and more particularly, to a low profile helmet that incorporates safety design for miners. The invention comprises a helmet embodying a rigid shell that is best described as being made up of integral portions joined together to permit the helmet to be fitted closely to the top of the wearer’s head. The close fit of the helmet minimizes the weight of the helmet itself, and provides excellent stability of the helmet on the head. Because of its close fit, low profile fitting with the wearer’s head, the helmet of the present invention further includes integral shock absorbing means in order to protect the head of the wearer.
