The impact of concussive forces on blast victims is often difficult to measure. BlackBox Biometrics (Hall 5, Stand C487) has revealed its wireless Blast Gauge System at Eurosatory.
The system aims to minimise the risk of traumatic brain injury by capturing data on exposure to blast overpressure and acceleration forces. It features optional wireless connectivity for instant data download to an iOS or Android platform and longer battery life. Comprising a three-sensor set worn on the head, shoulder and chest, with accompanying PC software, the instant exposure data can be accessed wirelessly or with a button press on the gauge.
