A New Biomechanical Assessment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Part 2 – Results and Conclusions

  title={A New Biomechanical Assessment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Part 2 – Results and Conclusions},
  author={James Newman and Cameron Barr and Marc Beusenberg and Ed Fournier and Nicholas Shewchenko and Eric Welbourne and Christopher Withnall},
This paper follows Part I that was presented at the 1999 IRCOBI Conference. A methodology, described in Part 1, has been developed that permits the reconstruction of certain incidents that occur in American football. Twenty-four cases of helmeted head impact, for which concussion was diagnosed in 9 cases, have been replicated with Hybrid III ATDs. Rigid body translational and rotational head accelerations have been measured in each case. Correlations between head injury and head kinematics have… CONTINUE READING
