This is a one-hour course that will review examples from biomechanical tests and legal cases to illustrate force and leverage, and viable mechanisms of injury such as whiplash, diving (cervical) and head injuries. By the end, participants should have a general understanding of occupant movements and forces in automobile collisions, intervertebral disc mechanics, and the process by which a biomechanical engineer evaluates personal injury allegations following an accident.

Presented by
Dr. Gary Yamaguchi
