FIGHTING THE BATTLE AGAINST TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

The Blast Gauge™ System is a 3-sensor set worn on the helmet, chest, and shoulder that logs pressure and acceleration from exposure to explosive blasts. Green, yellow, and red status LEDs provide instant triage data at the press of a button. A micro-USB connection allows full time-based data to be later analyzed by medical personnel.

Complete system

Load the latest firmware at time of activation, then transfer data back to PC for detailed event analysis.

Flexible mounting

Unique mounting design permits tool-free attachment to any helmet strap, PALS webbing, or physical structures like vehicles and buildings.

Tiny footprint

Weighs less than an ounce and takes up less than one cubic inch of space, yet it’s fully encapsulated to withstand weather and impact.
  • 01. Blast Occurs

    Blast Gauge™ records exposure data that may correlate to TBI.

  • 02. LED Feedback

    Upon request, the device emits a visual cue based on blast severity.

  • 03. Connect to PC

    Get more info on-site or back at base with our free proprietary software.

  • 04. Document Exposure

    Add blast data to permanent medical records or use for research.

It’s Time to Address Traumatic Brain Injury

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is recognized as the signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and has emerged as a significant challenge for the Department of Defense. According to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, more than 200,000 service members have suffered from TBI since the year 2000. The extent of injury is very often hard to discern, making field diagnosis and medical treatment problematic.
To address this challenge, BlackBox Biometrics developed the Blast Gauge™, a rugged sensor that captures pressure and acceleration experienced in an explosive blast. The device immediately categorizes the exposure, providing real-time severity triage capability, and then stores data of the exposure for detailed post-event analysis. This technology will help identify brain injuries long before physical and cognitive symptoms arise.
