Now when you see someone riding without a bicycle helmet you think that." Some say there's no need Are all these brain buckets really necessary? Jasper Shealy of the Rochester Institute of Technology, regarded as the country's leading expert on ski injuries, says no. "We have been tracing ski injuries for the past 25 years," Shealy says, "and the rate of head injuries to skiers is virtually unchanged." Shealy says skiers suffer about 3,000 head injuries annually, which make up about 2.5 percent of all ski-related injuries. While Shealy concedes it is always better to be wearing a helmet than not if you strike your head, he also says there is a limit to the protection a helmet will afford. "A helmet does an excellent job protecting you from the most common head injury, a mild concussion," he says. "And it can make more serious injuries less severe. But as you go up the severity scale, a helmet's value drops dramatically. 5 1 1L.

July 22, 1998 -18 night package which includes a land tour of Switzerland & France and 7 Night Rhone River Cruise on the First Class "Princesse de Provence " As far as a direct impact goes, a helmet only offers protection up to 12 miles per hour. And most severe head injuries occur at between 25 and 40 miles per hour. At that speed, a helmet will not make a great deal of difference." Another helmet concern Shealy has is what he calls "off-setting behavior" the tendency of people to take more chances because they are wearing a helmet. "I have people tell me they don't ski in the trees without a helmet," Shealy says. "The helmet gives them a false sense of security." Males most often killed ; He says males make up 85 percent of skiing-related deaths. Males in their late teens and 20s, make up half of that group. Shealy adds that half of skiing deaths involve collisions with trees, while the other half comes from striking objects rocks, lift towers and other people. ; "If you want to significantly reduce your chances of being killed while skiing," Shealy says, "stay away from the trees."
