This study focuses on typical characteristics of car accidents that may influence the extent of Cervical Spine Disorder (CSD) injuries and the subsequent recovery process. A statistical analysis of long-term CSD injuries in rear-end collisions was also performed, placing particular emphasis on the car models involved. 754 accidents were investigated retrospectively by analyzing insurance records (HUK – Coburg) in terms of the Quebec Task Force Injury Classification (QTF). Accidents were…

Biomechanics of Cervical Spine Injuries in Rear End Car Impacts: Influence of Car Seats and Possible Evaluation Criteria

It can be said that females showed a generally higher risk and older people showed a higher risk for high graded CSD injuries, and the current injury hypothesis describes now 3 phases (extension, head-impact, rebound), because muscular measurement shows also at the rebound phase a maximum contraction of the deep cervical spine muscles.

HOW INJURY CRITERIA CORRELATE WITH THE INJURY RISK - A STUDY ANALYSING DIFFERENT PARAMETERS WITH RESPECT TO WHIPLASH INJURY

It is recommended not to rely on a single criterion but to analyse different criteria in order to assess the protection potential of car seats in rear-end collisions by comparing results obtained in sled test experiments to real world accident data.

Influence of Crash Pulse Characteristics on Whiplash Associated Disorders in Rear Impacts—Crash Recording in Real Life Crashes

Results from crash recording of 66 real-life rear impacts were analyzed, where the change of velocity and the crash pulse were measured and the injury status of 94 front-seat occupants was classified.

Consequences for seat design due to rear end accident analysis, sled tests and possible test criteria for reducing cervical spine injuries after rear-end collision

It appears that women show a significantly higher risk of neurological QTF Grade 3 Cervical Spine Distortion (CSD) injuries in both front seating positions (driver and passenger) than male occupants.

Pulse shapes and injury risks in collisions with roadside objects: result from real-life impacts with recorded crash pulses

The possibility for lowering the impact severity in roadside collisions is different compared to car-to-car collisions. This may have implication for the construction of roadside objects. The aim of

Motion analysis of cervical vertebrae during whiplash loading.

The cervical spine is forced to move from the lower vertebrae during rear-end collisions and is probably related to the injury mechanism.

The injury severity score: an update.

The injury severity score has changed little in the past decade, but the number of hospital admissions and the severity of the injuries has changed significantly.
