Helmet use in preventing acute concussive symptoms in recreational vehicle related head trauma Helmets use has proved effective in reducing head trauma (HT) severity in children riding non-motorised recreational vehicles. Scant data are available on their role in reducing concussive symptoms in children with HT while riding non-motorised recreational vehicles such as bicycles, push scooters and skateboards (BSS).
We aimed to investigate whether helmet use is associated with a reduction in acute concussive symptoms in children with BSS-related-HT.
