Is head injury caused by linear or angular acceleration
Currently, angular acceleration is believed to be more damaging to the brain than linear acceleration, even though both are present in any head impact. In a recent experiment, it was found that aExpand
A mouse model of human repetitive mild traumatic brain injury
A novel method for the study of repetitive mild traumatic brain injury (rmTBI) that models the most common form of head injury in humans is presented. Existing animal models of TBI impart focal,Expand
Biomechanics of the human chest, abdomen, and pelvis in lateral impact.
Fourteen unembalmed cadavers were subjected to 44 blunt lateral impacts at velocities of approximately 4.5, 6.7, or 9.4 m/s with a 15 cm flat circular interface on a 23.4 kg pendulum accelerated toExpand
Biomechanics of the head for Olympic boxer punches to the face
Objective: The biomechanics of the head for punches to the jaw and the risk of head injury from translational and rotational acceleration were studied. Methods: Seven Olympic boxers from five weightExpand
Injury biomechanics research: an essential element in the prevention of trauma.
The central aspects of injury biomechanics research are defined and research approaches described. These aspects include the identification and definition of impact injury mechanisms, theExpand
Concussion in Professional Football: Location and Direction of Helmet Impacts—Part 2
OBJECTIVENational Football League game video was analyzed for the typical locations of severe helmet impacts in professional football. By use of selected cases that were reconstructed in laboratoryExpand
Concussion in Professional Football: Epidemiological Features of Game Injuries and Review of the Literature—Part 3
OBJECTIVEA 6-year study was performed to determine the circumstances, causes, and outcomes of concussions in the National Football League. METHODSBetween 1996 and 2001, the epidemiological featuresExpand
Twelve Years of National Football League Concussion Data
Background: Concussion in the National Football League (NFL) remains an important issue. An initial description of the injury epidemiology involved 6 years from 1996 to 2001. Hypothesis: TheExpand
