  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. Whiplash injury a clinical, radiographic and psychological investigation

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Kurt Pettersson; Seppo Santavirta; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cervical spine; whiplash injury; MRI; personality traits; steroid therapy; sagittal canal diameter; chronic symptoms;

    Abstract : Whiplash injury is a common and troublesome disorder and approximately 10-40 per cent of its victims develop chronic symptoms. The annual incidence is estimated at 1/1000 inhabitants and the prevalence at 1%. The cause of chronic symptoms after whiplash injury is still unknown and no effective treatment has been presented so far. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    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

  4. 4. Neck function in rhythmic jaw activities

    University dissertation from Umeå University, Umeå

    Author : Birgitta Häggman-Henrikson; [2004]
    Keywords : Chewing; Head; Human; Jaw; Mandible; Motor Control; Movement; Neck; Temporomandibular Disorders; Whiplash Injury;

    Abstract : Previous studies in animals and humans show anatomic and physiological connections between the trigeminal and cervical regions. This investigation tested the hypothesis of a functional integration between the human jaw and neck motor systems in rhythmic jaw activities. READ MORE
