“Airbag” motorcycle vests may prevent spinal cord injury in motorcycle accidents

seattle motorcycle accident lawyerWe just read about a new product, Spidi Neck DPS, which is a vest which basically inflates like an airbag when in the rider is involved in a motorcycle accident. The vest inflates like a car airbag and protects the rider from serious spinal cord injury which could result in paralysis or death.

The Spidi vests are hooked to a motorcycle with a tether which will inflate the vest when the rider falls off.

The vests can be used multiple times when recharged with CO2 and they come in both black and fluorescent yellow.

This is a safety innovation that could prevent serious injury or death in the event of a motorcycle accident.

Another safety innovation that has benefited motorcylists over the last few years are anti-lock brakes. Anti-lock brakes have been showed to reduce fatal motorcycle accidents by 37% and are especially helpful for novice riders.
