Pendulum testing was conducted to measure resultant head-form accelerations after an impact. We compared accelerations when the head-form was outfitted with the Mercado™ headgear to when it was outfitted with other contemporary headgear models. This test was conducted to determine the reduction in acceleration afforded by the Mercado compared to other headgear models various combinations of impact-severity and impact-location.
