What is the importance of Ice Hockey Helmet?

1. Two common head injuries in ice hockey are trauma and concussion. Since ice hockey players are required to wear Ice Hockey Helmet worldwide, and most countries require youth, children and non-professional adult players to wear helmets and full face protection during competition training.

2. Ice Hockey Helmet should be the right size, plus a mask and goggles. The protective cover and glasses are not harmful to the eyes. The protective cover and glasses are selected to avoid light and radiation, which is better. For the protection of the face, head trauma in modern ice hockey can basically be avoided.

3. Concussion is the biggest threat to ice hockey players, and because the formation mechanism of concussion is caused by the acceleration of the brain after the head is hit at high speed and hit the inside of the skull, so strictly speaking, any external impact on the head is caused. No protection can prevent concussions from occurring.

Why Choose the Right Size Ice Hockey Helmet?

The main purpose of the Ice Hockey Helmet is to prevent skull fractures. If it is too heavy, it will cause a certain burden on oneself and have a certain crushing force on the cervical spine, which will affect the performance.
