Bio mechanical Engineering and Reconstruction
Some cases require a detailed analysis of the intricate interplay between human and mechanical elements. MDA’ bio-mechanical engineer can establish the severity of the crash and decipher if forces in the collision were significant enough to result in injuries as claimed.
What is Bio mechanics?
Bio-mechanics is the application of mechanical principles to living organisms.
In the context of crash reconstruction, bio-mechanical analyses can allow a more detailed understanding of the forces as they act upon the human body, given the understanding of the overall inter-vehicle forces at play. For example, a common issue is whether or not the forces generated by a vehicle collision are of sufficient magnitude to precipitate an injury to an occupant. A bio-mechanical analysis will reveal the level of forces as they act upon the body, and more specifically, the injured human body component.
For example, a bio-mechanical analysis can reveal whether or not a pedestrian might have sustained lesser injuries had the striking vehicle been traveling at a lower velocity. To complete that type of analysis our experts understand the limitations of the human body at a musculoskeletal level, and compare those thresholds to the assessed forces in the actual collision.
In most cases, our local MDA experts will assess the crash dynamics and pass that important foundation information to the chosen bio-mechanical expert. This is a great saving in terms of professional fees, as the bio-mechanical expert may not have to travel.
MDA bio-mechanical experts can help you to understand how injuries occurred as a result of any physical event, and provide solid testimony to support our findings.
