Head-Neck Kinematics in Dynamic Forward Flexion 983156

Two-dimensional film analysis was conducted to study the kinematics of the head and neck of 17 restrained human volunteers in 24 frontal impacts for acceleration levels from 6g to 15g. The trajectory of the head center of gravity relative to upper torso reference points and the rotation of head and neck relative to the lower torso during the forward motion phase were of particular interest. The purpose of the study was to analyze the head-neck kinematics in the mid-sagittal plane for a variety of human volunteer frontal sled tests from different laboratories using a common analysis method for all tests, and to define a common response corridor for the trajectory of the head center-of-gravity from those tests.
