ONE OF THE IMPORTANT PROBELMS that needed to be investigated is the effect of muscle activity on the mechanisms of the neck injuries resulting from collision at low speeds. It has been experimentally indicated by Ono et al. [1] that the cervical muscles can react fast enough to significantly reduce the head angular displacement during the impact. Because of… CONTINUE READING
