Pre-impact lower extremity posture and brake pedal force predict foot and ankle forces during an automobile collision.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine how a driver's foot and ankle forces during a frontal vehicle collision depend on initial lower extremity posture and brake pedal force. METHOD OF APPROACH A 2D musculoskeletal model with seven segments and six right-side muscle groups was used. A simulation of a three-second braking task found 3647… (More)
