“These goggles don´t help you see ...
but they do make you think!”

Ever wonder why it's bad to drive while you're drunk? Slip on a pair of our Rauschbrillen (impairment goggles) and you'll no longer wonder.

These unique goggles simulate effects of impairment, including reduced alertness, slowed reaction time, confusion, visual distortion, alteration of depth and distance perception, reduction of peripheral vision, poor judgment and decision making, double vision, and lack of muscular coordination.
For some people, impairment might result from as little as one drink of alcohol. Impairment can also result from combining alcohol with prescription medication, yet with a very low Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC). Using illegal drugs is also impairing, with no BAC level even present. For the "average" person consuming alcohol under "average" circumstances driving or working with alcohol is still always risky and the
Rauschbrillen will demonstrate that perfectly.

The Rauschbrillen are being used in drunk driving prevention and awareness programs, driver education classrooms, underage drinking and drug awareness programs, alcohol and drug treatment programs, and by safety management and occupational health personnel. Even Ski schools use the Rauschbrillen for slope safety workshops. The different effects of  impairment  are simulated by 6 different types of Rauschbrillen.

These are our 6 Rauschbrillen available:
