Headbutt is a relevant type of a criminal assault that can result in injuries. [...] Key Method Series of measurements were carried out with volunteers with and without relevant soccer heading experience, and the impact velocity of the striking head was measured. A soccer ball was used as a surrogate of the stationary victim’s head.Expand
Injury pattern and the biomechanical assessment of skull fracture risk in blows with a rubber mallet.
TLDR
In a case of domestic violence where a man hit the head of his wife using a rubber mallet, contact times could be reliably estimated, while contact forces remained largely uncertain. Expand
Biomechanical approach for the assessment of contacts with deformable objects
TLDR
This work presents a simple test setup for contact force estimation in head contacts with deformable contact partners and can conclude that the injury pattern without skull fractures does not confound multiple strikes with a wheel. Expand
Blunt force impact to the head using a teeball bat: systematic comparison of physical and finite element modeling
TLDR
The systematic approach used to examine a 19-year-old student who was beaten with a wooden teeball bat will be described, and a computer-aided simulation was conducted, utilizing a finite-element (FE) method. Expand
Pedestrian hit by a car impacted metal pole: reconstructing the head load
TLDR
High contact forces in this case can be mainly explained by the comparably high impact velocity and by a partial mass transfer of the total car mass to the pole. Expand
Maxillofacial fractures and craniocerebral injuries – stress propagation from face to neurocranium in a finite element analysis
TLDR
As patients presenting with facial fractures have a risk for craniocerebral injuries attention should be paid to this and the indication for a CT-scan should be put widely. Expand
Force and velocity of impact during upper limb strikes in combat sports: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Athletes in mixed martial arts, trainers of self-defence or tactical coaches can expect that straight punches and reverse punches should be performed at high speeds and provide similar or larger impacts than other upper limb strikes; therefore, those punches should favour a combat athlete to win a competition or succeed in self-Defence. Expand
Maximum striking velocities in strikes with steel rods—the influence of rod length, rod mass and volunteer parameters
TLDR
Results show that maximum striking velocities increased with smaller rod masses and less consistently with higher rod lengths, and Statistically significant influences were found in the volunteers’ sex and average amount of physical exercise. Expand
Upper Limb Strikes Reactive Forces in Mix Martial Art Athletes during Ground and Pound Tactics
TLDR
The ground and pound strikes resulted in higher impacts than previously reported strikes in the standing position and can cause head injury; therefore, the use of these strikes in competition should be carefully considered. Expand

Fluch des Diplomaten
TLDR
A portrait of the Venetian statesman Paolo Tiepolo, presumed to have been painted in 1578 by Tintoretto, a red discoloration is present on the left forehead, and the most probable explanation is a port-wine stain. Expand

A proposed new biomechanical head injury assessment function - the maximum power index.
TLDR
A new hypothesis is propounded that the threshold for head injury will be exceeded if the rate of change of kinetic energy of the head exceeds some limiting value and a functional relation is proposed, which includes all six degrees of motion and directional sensitivity characteristics. Expand

TLDR
A high index of suspicion should be maintained and an early imaging technique, such as CT scan, should be considered in patients reattending the A&E with persistent symptoms even after minor head injury. Expand

TLDR
No consistent recommendations can be made on the basis of the current study for altering heading techniques to reduce impact severity because changing the biomechanics of currently accepted heading techniques will have inconsistent benefits towards the reduction of head loading. Expand
