The Virginia Tech – Wake Forest University Center for Injury Biomechanics and School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences will host the Advanced Technologies and New Frontiers in Biomechanics Symposium on Thursday, March 31, 2011.

The symposium is an all-day conference that showcases research and recent updates on injury biomechanics topics. This year’s topic will focus on Military Injury Biomechanics with some application to automotive and aerospace applications.

The symposium is an excellent opportunity to see advances in injury biomechanics as they apply to protecting our military personnel both at home and overseas. Some examples of this years’ presentations include:

• Anthropomorphic Test Device (Dummy) Technology for Face, Head, and Thorax
• Information on Blast Neurotrauma
• Automated Crash Notification Technology
• Human Body Modeling for Injury Assessment
• Blast Loading and Testing, Modeling, for Application to Personnel Carrying Vehicles
• Development of Anthopomorphic Test Devices for Military Relevant Loading Conditions
