As the medical director for the FXR Mobile Medical Team, I encourage riders in all motosports to wear Leatt cervical spine protection. On January 20,2018, a serious incident occurred at the ISOC national snocross event in Deadwood, SD. The Leatt protected rider sustained injuries that required immediate medical intervention. The Leatt brace prevented hyperflexion, extension, lateral and axial load force that prevented the potential for a cervical spine injury. As far as the medical team, it allowed for a solid structure to maintain in line cervical spine immobilization on track, during transport and enabled freedom to provide advanced airway management manoeuvres. In my professional opinion, Leatt neck protection made a significant difference assisting in the positive health outcome for this rider.
