The Biokinetics Ballistic Load Sensing Headform (BLSH) was developed to evaluate ballistic behind armor effects of ballistic helmets and can also be used to assess blunt force trauma from a host of generalized head strikes (i.e. less-lethal weapons, blunt force impacts).
The impact force of the striking shell on the skull is measured with an array of seven sensors using custom software and compared with injury risk criteria. A range of headforms allow for impacts to the front, rear, left, right and crown locations and come in a variety of sizes. A penetration headform is also offered for V50 assessment and provides secure helmet support and standoff as well as jaw and nape features for attaching the retention system.
