The Blast Gauge is a self contained device that captures the abrupt changes in pressure and acceleration associated with explosive blasts
The Blast Gauge is designed to help medics identify soldiers at risk of TBI after exposure to a blast
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is extending the testing of its Blast Gauge that measures the abrupt pressure and acceleration changes a soldier is exposed to in the event of a exposure to a blast. These external forces can result in traumatic brain injury (TBI), an often invisible injury that can cause a host of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral effects. DARPA’s Blast Gauge is designed to provide medics with quantitative data to better identify those at risk of TBI so as to provide better treatment.
