Abstract: One of the important causes of alarmingly high number of accidents due to two-wheelers is non-usage of helmets, and enforcing laws alone will not ensure safety. Studies have indicated that poor design of helmets leading to discomfort is one of the reasons why two-wheeler riders refuse to wear helmet while on road. In order to address such a problem, designing helmets on the basis of ergonomic principles specifically anthropometric dimensions of individuals of varied ethnicity was employed. A study has been carried out on adult males to design ‘customized’ helmets using regression modelling
