Title: Trauma Biomechanics
Authors: Kai-Uwe Schmitt, Peter Niederer, Felix Walz
Publishers: Springer (New York, Heidelberg)
ISBN: 3-540-22299-5

The book surveys a wide variety of topics in injury biomechanics including
anatomy, injury classification, injury mechanisms, and injury criteria. The
interdisciplinary approach necessary in trauma biomechanics is stressed by
showing the span from anatomy to engineering solutions for each body region.
Injury reference values are listed, either currently in use or proposed by
both the U.S. and European countries. Although the book is meant as a first
introduction for medical doctors and engineers, sufficient references for
scientific research are provided also.
