A trauma damper is a clump of specialized receptors in the brain. When these receptors receive sensory information indicating fatigue, pain or physical trauma, the damper triggers the release of concentrated endorphins and enkephalins, naturally produced opiates and painkillers. These substances do not aid in repairing injuries but they may keep the user alive and conscious long enough for him to receive medical help.

Trauma dampers do not work with pain editors and will only function with damage compensators if the compensators ability to block out trauma is overwhelmed.
