why it's needed

 
The Pro-Neck-Tor™ technology is an ongoing research project at the Orthopaedic and Injury Biomechanics Group at The University of British Columbia. The Pro-Neck-Tor™ technology is protected by two patents in the USA.

We are seeking industry partners to fund further development of the helmet and bring the technology to the cycling, motorcycling, sports and equestrian communities. Opportunities for government matching of industry contributions and generous tax credits for industry R&D expenditures make funding research at UBC a very attractive option for industry partners. Early industry adopters of the Pro-Neck-Tor™ technology will also be offered preferential licensing terms.

If you would like to learn more about Pro-Neck-Tor™ and the possibility to join its development team as a licensing and/or development partner, you may contact Professor Cripton at the address below:
