Air accelerator for high performance activities
“Products must look holistically at humance weelbeing: performance and healthcare together ”
In early 2020 I started a collaboration with a promising start-up based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Tigeraire started developing air ventilation systems for American football helmets. During the pandemic, each athlete had to wear visors on their helmets to prevent the spreading of the virus. The system resulted beneficial not only for defogging the visors but studies have proved it extremely advantageous for the athletes' performance. As soon as I joined the company as design director, the business extended first to batting helmets and later to hardhat for construction workers. Especially for the hard hat, extensive studies have been conducted over the validity of the aeration system in preventing heat strokes and provide a general improvement of the healthcare condition of the workers. The first products will be launched on the market in early 2022 and the array of products includes full helmets design as well as an add-on for applications on standard shells. My role in the company is supervising and direct all the product developing processes, from ideation to prototyping, testing, and pre-engineering phases.
