HANS Device Featured at 5th World Congress of Biomechanics
Atlanta, Georgia (August 2, 2006) - HANS Performance Products, known for the internationally award winning head and neck restraint, the HANS® Device, was featured today at the 5th World Congress of Biomechanics in Munich, Germany.
Hubert Gramling, a Safety Consultant to the FIA Institute for Motorsports Safety, presented an update on HANS Device performance, that he co-authored with Bob Hubbard, to congress members from around the world.
Bob, a Professor of Biomechanics at Michigan State University, along with well-known racer Jim Downing, developed the HANS Device. As an engineer for Mercedes, Hubert worked with Bob in the 1990's to help adapt the HANS Device for formula car cockpits.
When asked to comment, Dr. Hubbard said: "We are pleased to have Hubert speak on behalf of HANS Performance Products. Hubert has assisted us with many ideas and knows the HANS Device extremely well."
The 5th World Congress of Biomechanics is being hosted by The Institute of Biotechnik e.V., the Technical University of Munich and Munich University of Applied Sciences. It brings together biomechanical experts to review experimental and applied technologies in all areas of biomechanics. More than 2,000 participants from the top industrial nations such as Asia, India, Central and South America and countries in Eastern Europe are expected to attend.
