I have recently been contracted to design a piece of headgear for a medical application. I am mid-design and I figured I would send out a quick note to see if anyone on this board has experience in ergonomic design for headgear.
The key goals of this project are improved patient comfort and maintaining headgear position. Likely these will be custom headgear for each patient but I would love to hear any suggestions on how to accomodate multiple heads of varying sizes with the same or similar headgear. Any ideas?
How about restraint systems? I have done a good deal of research on restraint systems employed by bike helmets, ball caps, glasses of various types, headphones and numerous other safety helmet designs. I am still looking to be inspired by a killer idea.
Let me know if anyone has suggestions. Thanks.
