Inflatable Jackets Poised To Redefine Motorcycle Safety

Posted on December 30, 2011

According to news sources, motorcycle engineers are working hard to redefine motorcycle safety by developing inflatable jackets that can inflate around the motorcyclist in case of collision and help protect against injuries resulting from impact.

The development of the new inflatable jacket is being developed by two companies, Dainese and Aplinestars. The inflatable jackets work by utilizing mirco sensors installed within the jacket to detect any impact within a second of it taking place. The inflatable jackets then inflate, surrounding the motorcyclist, and absorbing most of the shock resulting from any impact.

There are currently various options in the market to protect motorcyclists, including airbag systems installed to the motorcycle, similar to those found in vehicles. However without the necessary safety restrains, motorcycle airbag systems may potentially pose significant risks, such as knocking off riders from their motorcycles as they propel forward.

As a personal injury lawyer Los Angeles, I appreciate all efforts made to ensure higher safety standards to protect motorists and pedestrians. The conclusions of this innovative endeavor seem to suggest that motorcyclists can one day ride while feeling protected from impact. As a Los Angeles personal injury attorney, I hope that supplying this information will assist those wanting to find newer and better ways to stay safe.
