360 Plus Device is definitely a different approach to filling the
requirement of wearing a neck collar. The molded, glass filled nylon
core piece, along with the firm chin foam parts, provides a stable
platform for helping control the movement of drivers head when needed.
Major issues the 360 Plus Device helps limit are front and rear
hyper-flexion and extreme lateral motion. This is all accomplished while
still allowing the driver unrestricted rotation of the head to look
over the shoulder for oncoming karts.

hyper-flexion is reduced by the front of the helmet coming in contact
with the firm foam pieces of the device under the drivers chin. These
components are constructed of foam that is much denser than the normal
neck collar currently worn by drivers.
The vertical braces of the
core piece, located behind the driver's helmet, helps control the rear
hyper-flexion. The helmet coming into contact with the upper vertical
brace, located directly behind the driver's head, reduces backward
movement. This engagement then transfers the energy to lower vertical
brace located against the driver's back.
Extreme lateral motion of
a driver's head is minimized when the helmet comes into contact with
the device. While not hindering the driver swiveling his/her head from
side to side, the device provides a robust platform for the helmet to
rest against as in a roll over situation.
This is all accomplished
while still allowing the driver unrestricted rotation of the head to
look over the shoulder for oncoming karts.
The foam pieces under
the chin of the driver are much stiffer than the foam used in other neck
collars that are currently available to the driver now. The denser
foam allows for better control of the helmet movement. The 360 Plus
Device is designed with foam parts in the front, verses plastic, to help
minimize potential injury to the throat area if forced backward.
break away feature. In the bizarre event that something should hook
inside the Device, the 360 Plus Device is designed to break away so that
the potential for serious neck injury is reduced.
The foam pieces are also adjustable - laterally, front to rear - to adjust for the different chest thicknesses of drivers.
The 360 Plus Device weighs in at only 1.50 lbs.
