dc.description.abstractThe paper repudiates a 1979 study that reported a lower likelihood of damage to the cord of the cervical spine (cervical spinal cord injury or cervical SCI) for wearers of full-face helmets compared with open-face helmets among motorcyclists that had sustained a head impact. This paper argues that it appears that the 1979 study suffered from factors biasing the results away from the null hypothesis. The present study suggests that there may be no added benefit or harm of the full-face helmet relative to the open-face helmet on cervical SCI.en
