Applied BioMechanics

Applied BioMechanics specializes in providing engineering and scientific
consulting in the areas of accident reconstruction, injury biomechanics, and
related disciplines. Our key practice area is the analysis of accidents -
to determine "what happened" in an accident. In automobile accidents,
Applied BioMechanics analyzes available witness accounts and physical
evidence, such as skid marks and property damage, reconstructs the
interaction between the involved vehicles, and then analyzes the dynamics of
the occupants during the collision. The resulting data on body force and
motion, compared with known human tolerance, forms the basis to determine
the mechanism of injury. With this information, one can then analyze the
"what-if" scenarios, such as the expected injury outcome had an unrestrained
occupant been using a seat belt during the crash. In addition to analyzing
automobile accidents, Applied BioMechanics also performs accident
reconstruction and biomechanical analysis in other environments, including
the following:

Other vehicular accidents, such as motorcycle, bicycle, pedestrian,
bus, train and heavy truck accidents
Recreational accidents, such as skiing accidents
Work-related incidents, such as repetitive trauma
Orthopedic devices, such as hip, knee and spinal prosthesis failure
Fall accidents (slip and fall, and fall from a height)
Mechanical design analysis and evaluation.
