Dyson Award 2016 Winner Announced: A Folding Paper Bicycle Helmet That Could Save Lives

Ms Shiffer used a test rig at Imperial College London to measure the strength and durability of the EcoHelmet’s design.

“It is so solid and everyone who had held it in their hands is surprised about how solid it is,” she told the BBC.

According to the Department of Transport, there were more than 3,200 serious injuries to cyclists on the roads in 2015.

Ms Shiffer’s hope is to sell them alongside the bike sharing stations – like those found in London – for around £4 per helmet.
