Biomechanics of Injury
Injury biomechanics utilizes the principles of engineering mechanics applied to the human body.
Principally in the field of forensic analysis of accidental injury, this relates to determining the forces and extent of motion experienced by the body. The analysis requires identification and the analysis of the mechanisms of the injury. The determination of the extent of the impulse loading as it relates to established tolerance levels. The adoption of protective devices that would have eliminated or mitigated the injury is an application of the analysis.
