Today in the category of “Startups” — a childrens helmet Iprotect, which protects the childs head from injuries and concussions in the domestic environment. Pass the microphone. My name is Dmitry Sereda, Im 41 years old, education — childrens traumatologist-orthopedist. Imagine childrens protective helmet Iprotect.

Also the reduction in injuries in children reduces the overall burden on the healthcare system. In addition, the absence of pain stress suffered in early childhood, creates the preconditions for healthy development in the future.

It looked like a prototype of the helmet Iprotect: So the helmet looks like now: Technically its simple — use the same materials as in diapers and hygienic pads.
Cotton fabric, polyethylene and structural elements (elastic and Velcro). Despite its simplicity, the design features and material Iprotect surpass analogues in many respects. My potential customers, mainly parents and relatives of children aged from eight months. The goods will be distributed among the countries of the customs Union — Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia.
