Helmet-most essential accessory for Bike Riders

A Motorcycle helmet is a protective headgear used by motorcycle riders. The primary goal of a motorcycle helmet is to protect the rider's head during collision or accident, thus preventing or reducing head injury or saving the rider's life. Research and surveys concluded that helmets reduce the risk of head injury by around 69% and death by around 42%. Helmet's purpose is to save the rider's head from brain injuries that are more serious than skull fractures. They frequently result in death, permanent disability or personality change and, unlike bone; neurological tissue has very limited ability to recover after an injury. Therefore, the primary purpose of a helmet is to prevent traumatic brain injury while skull and face injuries are a significant secondary concern.
