This Canadian company already has a hockey helmet made with a unique air-filled bladder as the liner. There is a special valve that lets a small amount of air expand a membrane into a cylindrical chamber when an impact starts. When the impact exceeds 30g the membrane contacts a sharp dart at the end of the chamber and the liner deflates through holes at the end at a controlled rate.

Evolution of the American Pressed Fiber Helmet
