Ft. Bragg Airborne troops support R&D to prevent Soldier head injuries | U.S. Army

Must Read

Airborne soldiers at Ft. Bragg have recently began testing new sensors inside their helmets aimed at ameliorating some of the head and neck trauma they sustain from jumping. The Army Research Laboratory’s newest Head Impact Monitoring Sensors will be tested on members of the 2nd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division and the Airborne and Special Operations Test Directorate. The Rate Activated Tether helmet suspension and the Impact Monitoring Mouthguard both look to provide more protections while maintaining a comfortable wearing experience. The data collected during these experiments will inform future design decisions.
