HANS devices are an essential piece of motorsports safety equipment. HANS stands for Head And Neck System, its function is to prevent neck injuries in the event of a crash.
Unlike in a road car, when in a track prepped or racing car you usually are wearing a helmet and strapped into the seat with a multi point harness. This is great except for one little detail, with the weight of the helmet on your head and your body strapped in tight your neck can experience a lot of force from your head moving in a crash. The HANS device restricts the amount your head is able to move. Preventing serious whiplash and debilitating or fatal neck spinal cord injuries.
