Injury Biomechanics: From Research to Reconstruction” 

The discipline of biomechanics is routinely utilized to elucidate injury mechanisms and answer important questions about injury risk and mitigation. This presentation will provide a high-level overview of injury biomechanics as it applies to the investigation of real-world incidents. It will describe how research in human tolerance utilizing a variety of tools and surrogates is leveraged to inform real-world injury reconstructions. A case study involving an automotive rollover will be presented to illustrate the types of data and laboratory testing that are used to understand injury mechanisms and to assess the potential influence of mitigation strategies.
