The aim of the kit is to:
- increase clients’ knowledge of how motor skills, hand eye co-ordination and judgement are impaired by alcohol
- provide clients with engaging and interactive activities to increase sustainable learning regarding alcohol.
The pack contains 2 pairs of Fatal Vision goggles, each with a different BAC level. These levels simulate the impairment associated with a level of Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC).
The goggles provide the chance to experience how alcohol impairs a person's balance, vision, reaction time, and judgement.
The White Label goggle simulates a low level of impairment, an estimated BAC of less than .06. The effect of the White Label goggle will be subtle, as in the beginning stages of low impairment.
The Red Label goggle simulates a moderate to high level of impairment, an estimated BAC of .12 to .15+. Impairment is more apparent and easily recognised.
