Tim Nelson

Tim Nelson grew up in Canada as an avid participant in many of the sports that give rise to head-first impacts and the injury mechanism that the Pro-Neck-Torâ„¢ helmet is being designed to prevent and mitigate. Tim co-invented the Pro-Neck-Torâ„¢ helmet with Dr. Cripton and built the first prototypes of the helmet and evaluated the performance of the helmet experimentally. He completed his PhD in 2011 and now works as a biomechanical engineer with MEA Forensic Engineers & Scientists in Los Angeles, California. Tim currently acts as an advisor to the team of engineers testing and commercializing the helmet with Dr. Cripton.
