Injury Mechanism and Crash Kinematic of Cyclists in Accidents - An Analysis of Real Accidents 892425
For this study 614 accidents of two-wheel users were investigated by a scientific research team within the framework of local accident documentations.
The accident and injury situations are described, and cognitions from accident simulation tests are additionally evaluated with dummies. Throwing distances of two-wheelers and riders reveal the characteristics of the movement kinematic, in relation to impact speeds. Head impact points are described in detail and sustained injuries are recorded, divided into type and severity (AIS). Furthermore, differences of traumatizing between children and adult cyclists are discussed.
