Dear all,

I am looking for informations on trauma at the neck level due to wearing
a helmet while walking or standing a long time. This topic is of obvious
interest to armies (foot soldiers wearing heavy helmets); some sports
may also be interested in such research.
Although I was told injuries have been reported I can not find any
published field data nor experimental or modeling study of head with
helmet in walking/running/standing situations (not in impact situations).

I would greatly appreciate if anybody could provide references of
published papers on the subject. Of course I will make the results
available to the group.

Thanks in advance,
