Biomechanical Engineering

Biological Systems. Mechanical Principles.

Our biomechanical engineers are dedicated to the analysis that is essential to injury causation investigations for accidents in the areas of transportation, falls, machinery and heavy equipment. They provide findings based on the collective understanding of how the anatomic elements of a human body perform.

Determining the effects of impact and torque on the human body is critical to injury investigations. Accurate analysis requires knowledge of the interaction of forces as they impact bones, ligaments, tendons, organs, blood vessels, and nerves under various mechanical loadings. The following factors are representative of their investigations:

  • Occupant kinematics
  • Injury mechanism
  • Injury causation
  • Tolerance
  • Vehicle restraints
  • Gait analysis
