Sembi’s cricket helmet allows full ventilation, a significant reduction in heat buildup compared to the enclosed helmet designs with the added advantage of being much lighter.
Because I played a bit of cricket, I noticed some problems with existing helmets, Sembi said. Also, watching the test matches, I noticed that the players were affected with helmets and even the commentators mentioned it when the game was played in hot conditions.
So I did more research and found Northumbria’s research and realized that very little work was done to solve the problems, so I created this helmet.
Currently, cricket helmets provide protection for the batsman’s head from cricket balls but in my mind, they don’t really solve all the problems. The cricket helmet provides good protection, but can be uncomfortable for bats, with heat buildup, weight problems, and vision obstructions. These problems can distract and even disturb the batsmen that he or she does.
My cricket helmet provides ventilation for the bat to cool the head, and it is also lightweight and helps improve visibility. In particular, this helmet will improve batsman’s stamina in the long innings.
I went for a geodetic structure to allow maximum power while allowing maximum ventilation, and also to reduce the weight of the helmet. Geodetic structure is ideal for absorbing the impact of a cricket ball and distributing energy evenly on the face of the shock absorbing helmet.
The helmet is also designed with two forward vents to promote airflow when running, leading the air inside the helmet up and out of the head.
The first layer of protective layer is polycarbonate plastic to allow bats to have clear vision with multiple peripheral vision, and I used a thin inner layer to prevent and break the debris into. face in case of being hit. The film also has an anti-reflective coating, similar to the clear protectors on hockey hockey helmets.
Metal guards made from titanium for both strength and light weight. I also play around with colors and handle 20% gray for the lowest reflection value.
I really want this project to be absorbed and further developed by a major sporting goods manufacturer such as Nike, Puma, Gunn & Moore, Slazenger or Masuri.
Fixing these findings will not only affect cricket players but also anyone who regularly wears helmets for safety purposes, from construction workers and military personnel to sports.
Other include horse riding, motor racing, motorcycle riding, cycling or whenever a significant increase in body temperature is likely to occur.
Dr Nick Neave said that while the head only accounts for 7-10% of the total body surface, the head temperature is often higher than other body regions.
Using helmets reduces airflow on the head and this leads to speculation that people who frequently wear helmets may be more susceptible to heat-related stress and high-attention tasks. may be more affected by this.
Our research has revealed that while wearing a helmet does not have an adverse physiological effect on users, it has led to a significant decline in attention and a slower response time in a number of things. Test conditions can affect the cognitive skills needed for successful polishing performance, as well as many cricket were suspected.
Helmets recommended for cricket do not require ventilation openings to allow heat to travel from the start, although some teams use them.
Making the right and quick decision is essential for a batsman player and our research can have implications not just for cricket but also for the sports and career that require morale. other, where people must wear head protection.
However, we emphasize that safety improves when helmet wearing goes beyond the small negative effects of wearing a helmet.
The tests, conducted by Dr. Neave and colleagues Dr. Mark Moss and John Emmet, used computerized test batteries to measure temperature, hydration level and fatigue before training and after 30 minutes of intense training.
The publication of Northumbria University’s research may not have led to any significant changes in the design of on-shelf cricket helmets at sporting goods stores, but it inspired Ravinder Sembi to consider what What could have been on one of his final degree projects at Ravensbourne College.
Cricket is one of the most modern and original sports of all modern sports, originating somewhere from 700 to 900 years ago in the UK, with international competition starting a century ago and there have been almost no major rule changes since then.
It is unbelievable that it seems nothing strange in this most controversial contest, each international match lasting 30 hours in five days and often ending without results, with each international series consisting of five matches.
Such matches (150 hours) also usually end without clear the winner. Playing with a small, very hard ball, thrown (thrown with a straight arm), at a speed of up to 160 km/h, that illustrates the rigorous thinking involving the body’s governing body. This sports helmet for humans when shooting the line was not introduced until 30 years ago despite having a terrible traumatic history.
Like almost everything else in a sport influenced by stubborn traditionalism, the design of cricket hats goes far beyond the available technology.
With the university’s mid-2004 tests, helmets can delay batsman’s response by up to a second quarter, you think we might have seen a rethink of cricket helmet design ever since, but we don’t get see that. Inspired by those experiments, designer Ravinder Sembi re-engineered a cricket helmet to fix this fundamental problem.
The tests were conducted in 2003 and 2004 at the Northumbria University School of Psychology and Sports by Dr. Nick Neave investigating physical and mental requirements during an intense polishing exercise on eight People when wearing helmets do not have standard vents and when not wearing helmets at all.
The study revealed that wearing a helmet resulted in a noticeable drop in attention and a slower reaction time in some trials. Given that these tests are conducted in sunny England, and not in semi-tropical climates where most cricket players, such as the midday sun of Mumbai, Lahore, Brisbane and so on, the results have been could be a huge potential breakthrough in cricket accessories.
The findings were presented at the annual meeting of the British Psychological Association at the Royal University, London in April 2004 and hope some major sports companies have noticed, because we have not yet See significant changes in design from full helmet recently.
