Clavicle fracture prediction: simulation of shoulder lateral impacts with geometrically personalized finite elements models.


BACKGROUND Human body numerical models can help to develop protection devices against effects of road crashes. In the context of a side impact, a shoulder model able to predict shoulder injuries and more especially clavicle fracture would be helpful. METHODS A shoulder model derived from an existing finite element model of the human body representing an… (More)
