The Vast Scope of Biomechanics and Human Factors:
Beyond Motor Vehicle Collisions

While motor vehicle collisions and slips/trips/falls may be the first things that come to mind when discussing biomechanics and human factors, recreational activities can also utilize the same principles. This presentation will show the ways biomechanics and human factors can be applied to a variety of scenarios, and discuss unique case studies including water tubing, horseback riding, and skiing incidents.

Presented by
