  • 2008 Injury Biomechanics Symposium Registration Information

    We would like to invite you to attend the 2008 Injury Biomechanics Symposium
    which will be held May 18th through May 20th, 2008 at The Ohio State
    University in Columbus, Ohio. The purpose of the symposium is to stimulate
    and reward strong injury biomechanics research among students and recent
    graduates. Attendees can expect original biomechanics research in a forum
    intended to foster communication between developing and established

    We are pleased to announce that 10 Universities from around the world will
    be participating in the symposium. The symposium will feature 9 oral
    presentations and 12 posters. A small sample of the experimental and
    theoretical topics to be discussed include -

    • Pediatric ATD Biofidelity
    • Experimental Pressurization Techniques for both Eye and Spinal
    Cord Research
    • Anterior Tibia Impact Testing
    • Helmet & Neck Collar Testing
    • Humerus and Forearm Bending Risk Functions
    • Geometric Scaling Factors for the Pediatric Brainstem
    • Pregnant Female Anthropometry from CT Scans

    Other Symposium events will include:
