The use of helmets is an important requirement in today's use of land and aircraft due to the safety of the user and sometimes additional requirements. The helmet is the primary protective equipment for safety purposes, especially for motorcycle and bicycle users. In situations that require the common use of this protective equipment by more than one person, incompatibility occurs because there are different sized head structures and the helmet leaves the user's head in the event of an accident. In this case, the helmet loses its protection. In this case, head and brain injuries and deaths occur. The same happens when the single-user helmet is incompatible with the user head sizes. In this study, a completely new system has been developed for the prevention of injuries and deaths caused by dimensional mismatch in helmet use. The developed system will be an economical solution source with its pneumatic structure. It has been determined that with the use and spread of the developed system, it is possible to prevent accidental damage, especially head injuries.
