Authors: Begonia M, Rooks T, Pintar FA, Yoganandan N Abstract Blunt impact assessment of the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) is currently based on the linear head response. The current study presents a methodology for testing the ACH under complex loading that generates linear and rotational head motion. Experiments were performed on a guided, free-fall drop tower using an instrumented National Operating Committee for Standards on Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) head attached to a Hybrid III (HIII) or EuroSID-2 (ES-2) dummy neck and carriage. Rear and lateral impacts occurred at 3.0 m/s with peak linear accelerations (PLA...

Authors: Kelley AM, Showers M Abstract Following concussion, return-to-duty decisions are made by medical providers and leaders using informal assessment, review of symptom resolution, and clinical assessments. In an effort to provide military-specific tasks for use in the decision making regarding return-to-duty, a battery developed from the set of basic soldier skills, the Military Functional Assessment Program (MFAP), was evaluated for construct validity using clinical assessment outcomes as well as the relationships between MFAP performance and indicators of long-term performance and satisfaction. A total of 48...

Authors: Onge PS, Temme LA, McAtee A, O'Brien KJ, Byrd BK Abstract Concussion biomarkers are important guides for diagnosis and return-to-duty decisions. Recent literature describes the King-Devick (KD) test as a sensitive sports-related concussion screener. This test involves timing an individual reading aloud 120 digits printed on three test cards. The test is commonly considered to evaluate the effects of concussion and other factors on reading-related eye movements (EMs). However, the extent to which the KD test reflects EMs remains a matter of conjecture since the test reports only reading speed and number of ...
