A c r i t e ri o n f o r brain inj ury threshold i s proposed w h i c h , for the f i r s t time, endeavours to take into consideration the combined effects of both t rans l a t ional and rotat ional kinema t i cs. The val i d i t y of the mode l is as s e s s ed by w ay of a review of a l l known head inj u ry data bases in which translational and rotational accelerations have been monitored. Available data appears to support no more than a simple linear proportioning of the two types of… CONTINUE READING
