That's why we do research. It's sad that this didn't work out.

Customized Exoskeleton Allows Former Soldier with TBI to Walk Again

Former Canadian soldier Trevor Greene, who survived a debilitating brain injury while on duty in Afghanistan in 2006, has recovered his ability to walk again with the help of a customized exoskeleton, his personal determination and support of researchers at Simon Fraser University.

The research will appear in The Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation.

45 years and still going. I got a TBI in Vietnam on June 17, 1971 when shrapnel blew a hole through the left side of my brain. I found out in 2009 that Walter Reed left two pieces in there.
On November 11, 2016, my wife and I will be married for 44 years.

Color Changing Polymer Can Signal TBI in Athletes and Soldiers

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/tbi-color-changing-polymer-2455/.

To detect head trauma immediately, a team of researchers has developed a polymer-based material that changes colors depending on how hard it is hit. The goal is to someday incorporate this material into protective headgear, providing an obvious indication of injury.

The research was presented at the 250th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society.

Image: There is no easy way to tell if someone has just sustained a brain injury, so soldiers and athletes may unknowingly continue to do the very activity that caused the damage and potentially cause more harm. But a force-responsive, color-changing patch could prevent additional injury. Image adapted from the American Chemical Society video.
