Biomechanics

Biomechanics is the science of how the human body responds to applied external and internal forces. Injuries are caused by specific applied loads.

Major Causes

  • Falls 

  • Vehicle Impacts 

  • Pedestrian Impacts 

  • Seat Belt Restraint Use in Vehicles 

  • Air Bags and Air Curtains 

 

Services FEI provides

FEI performs comprehensive analysis of injury causes related to human performance.  FEI examine specific injuries and through reverse engineering applies the knowledge of the injury mechanism to determine the causes of the injuries, addressing the following questions:

  • How did the injury occur?

  • Is the injury consistent with the case information?

  • What measures could have been taken to prevent injury?

  • Were employee’s trained?

  • Was there a defect in design?

  • Were there any statutory violations?
