  1. 1. Neck injuries in rear impacts : Dummy neck development, dummy evaluation and test condition specifications

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Astrid Linder; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Neck; Injury; Anthropometric dummy; Severity; Impact test; Rear end collision; Seat; Mathematical model; Velocity; Thesis; Optimization; Mathematical neck models; Rear impact tests; Biomechanics; Road: Components of the vehicle; Road: Components of the vehicle;

    Abstract : The objective of the work underlying this thesis was firstly to develop a neck for a new rear impact dummy, to evaluate the complete dummy and to specify test conditions for a consumer test with attention to AIS 1 neck injuries in rear impacts. In the development of the dummy neck, a mathematical neck model was developed and evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Traumatic brain injuries and whiplash injuries epidemiology and long-term consequences

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Abstract : BackgroundThe incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) is about 500 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per year, a majority of which are mild TBI (MTBI). The incidence of whiplash injuries is about 300/100,000/year. READ MORE

  3. 3. Prevention and prediction of head and neck injury in traffic accidents - using experimental and numerical methods

    University dissertation from Institutionen för flygteknik

    Author : Peter Halldin; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : Head injuries; neck injuries; prevention; roll-over; motorcycle; helmet;

    Abstract : Injuries to the head and neck system are potentially amongthe most serious injuries in humans, since they may damage thespinal cord. It is therefore important to develop safetysystems that can prevent injuries to the neuro- system, therebyreducing human suffering and costs to society. READ MORE

    Keywords : neck injuries; finite element method; numerical analysis; cervical spine;

    Abstract : Injuries to the neck, or cervical region, are very importantsince there is a potential risk of damage to the spinal cord.Any neck injury can have devastating if not life threateningconsequences. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neck Injury Risk in Rear-End Impacts. Risk Factors and Neck Injury Criterion Evaluation with Madymo Modelling and Real-Life Data

    University dissertation from Institutionen för flygteknik

    Author : Linda Eriksson; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; injury criteria; rear-end impacts; neck injuries; mathematical modelling; injury probability; head restraints; BioRID; NICmax; risk factors; WAD; car seats;

    Abstract : Soft-tissue neck injuries, also termed AIS 1 neck injuries, are common after low-speed rear-end impacts. These injuries, which can be long-lasting, have increased in frequency during the past few decades. There is no consensus regarding injury mechanisms; however, injury criteria have been proposed, without yet being fully evaluated. READ MORE
