Thoracic deformation under an applied load is an established indicator of injury risk, but the force required to achieve an injurious level of deformation currently is not understood adequately. This article evaluates how two potentially important factors, loading condition and muscle tensing, affect the structural response of the dynamically loaded thorax.(More)
The radiographic density of the proximal fragments of 16 scaphoid fractures was assessed on scaphoid series radiographs taken at 6 to 12 weeks. In addition, dual energy X-ray absorptiometry measurements of bone mineral density in the distal radius and proximal and distal fracture fragments were performed at 1 to 2 weeks and 6 to 12 weeks. Median reductions(More)
Strain measurement in biological material is frequently problematic due to material in-homogeneity, high strain to failure, and the relatively low stiffness of most biological tissue. As an alternative to conventional strain measurement techniques, this study investigates the potential of a non-contact optical system capable of measuring three dimensional(More)
In this study a MADYMO (mathematical dynamic modelling) model has been used to identify the influence of leg fracture on the injuries sustained by the pedestrian during front end impact with a vehicle. A factorial study of a MADYMO pedestrian and vehicle model are used to investigate the effect of different leg fracture tolerances, geometry, and vehicle(More)
