Simulator Goggles With a Sobering Lesson
These goggles don’t help you see, but they do make you think! Companies are working with Heart Screen to take a proactive approach to address alcohol/drug problems by getting their message across to their employees with a “hands-on” demonstration in experiencing the dangers of drinking and driving.
DUEyes is an interactive activity that expresses the serious nature of alcohol and drunk driving. Heart Screen’s simulation allows participants to take a first-hand look into the effects of alcohol on their perception and sight. This program also magnifies the importance of avoiding drunk driving and intoxication while understand the problems and negative outcomes of alcohol.
What are you really like when you get drunk? Heart Screen’s DUEyes simulator goggles allow you to experience the potentially deadly consequences of being impaired, while you are sober.
When people directly experience impairment with our DUEyes program, the lesson sticks.
Research shows that those who learn from hands-on experience retain two to four times more than those who learn from just listening or listening and seeing.
Heart Screen’s unique goggles simulate the effects of impairment, including reduced alertness, slowed reaction time, confusion, lack of coordination, visual distortion, alteration of depth and distance perception and double vision.
Impairment has the potential to affect us in everything that we do, whether at home or work; in school or participating in athletic events or out in the community. Impairment can lead to tragic and deadly consequences.
Modified for use in business or industry setting, employees can “see” the effects of the two-martini lunch. You’ll safely understand how alcohol and/or drug abuse leads to poor judgment and decision making.
Heart Screen’s DUEyes are the ultimate hands-on, interactive tool, powerfully demonstrating the dangers of impairment.
