In order to enhance flight performance, numerous Naval and joint DoD development programs feature head-supported devices (HSD) for fixed and rotary wing aircraft, e.g. night vision goggles and displays. However, wearing these systems during long duration operations or while exposed to repeated shock, impact, ejection, and crash increases the risk of spinal injury. Factors that affect injury tolerance include the additional weight, which typically pitches the head forward, age, gender, work/rest… CONTINUE READING
