Hi, I am W. S. R. Thamel, following the M.Phil degree program at the University of Moratuwa. In order to find a solution for COVID 19 virus spread and infection issues, I developed a vertical/horizontal collapsible low-cost helmet.

The main features of this design with compare to existing developments are

01) it provides facilities to collapse the helmet in a vertical or horizontal side based on the usages.

02) This design provides extra protection for ears as well. Due to parts separation capability, it is very easy to clean all the parts before reuse.

03) Very low cost to built the product so that everyone can afford to buy it easily

Under the guidance and financial support of SLIC, I am currently manufacturing the helmet which is planned to distribute among medical staff.
