The original HANS Performance Products USA - HANS Device.
The device was designed in the early 1980s by Dr. Robert Hubbard and Jim Downing, following the death of one of their mutual friends, Patrick Jacquemart who was killed in an IMSA testing accident at Mid-Ohio. The first prototype was developed in 1985, and in crash tests in 1989 (the first to use crash sleds and crash dummies using race car seat belt harnesses) the energy exerted on the head and neck was lowered by some 80%.
On June the 9th the MSA Council voted to male FIA approved Frontal Head Restraints (FHR) mandatory for Stage Rallying, Hill Climb and Sprint (with certain exceptions in each) from 1st January 2016 onward.
