What is a HANS device and FHR?

HANS stands for Head and Neck Support device.
FHR stands for Frontal Head Restraint.

HANS were the first motorsport company to pioneer a Frontal Head Restraint for racing drivers and they called their FHR a "HANS device". The expression "HANS device" stuck, and soon became the accepted trade name for FHR's in the motorsport world, even though what is actually being described is really a FHR. 

A useful analogy when describing HANS devices and FHR's  to think back to vacum cleaners..... which are also some times known as Hoovers, in recoginition of the brand building work done by Hoover when they launched their vacum cleaner. Its the same with HANS and FHR's

Why is there a FIA hologram on 2017 FIA approved harnesses?

As of 1st January 2013 the FIA introduced a new FIA hologram label for all competition harnesses. TRS endorse the FIA's fight against counterfeited safety products and support the FIA's introduction of a uniquely numbered FIA hologram sticker sewn to the left hand shoulder strap of every FIA harness. All 2013 TRS FIA approved harnesses have the new FIA hologram.
