      López Valdés, Francisco José; Seacrist, Thomas; Arbogast, Kristy .B.; Balasubramanian, Sriram; Maltese, Matthew R.; Tanji, Hiromasa; Higuchi, Kazuo; Kent, Richard W. (01/05/2012)
      <p><strong>Objective:</strong></p> The goal of this article is to propose a new methodology to estimate the sagittal plane displacement of the head, spine, and pelvis of a 6-year-old (6YO) occupant during a high-speed ...
    • A methodology to obtain kinematic corridors for pediatric occupants in frontal impacts 

      López Valdés, Francisco José; Seacrist, Thomas; Balasubramanian, Sriram; Maltese, Matthew R.; Arbogast, Kristy .B.; Tanji, Hiromasa; Higuchi, Kazuo; Kent, Richard W. (Biomedical Engineering Society of Singapore; Global Enterprise for Micromechanics and Molecular Medi (Singapur, Singapur), 01/08/2010)
      Pediatric Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATD) provide a reasonable approximation predicting maximum head excursion. However, the exact trajectory followed by the human head and the flexible human spine cannot be replicated ...
    • Kinetics of the cervical spine in pediatric and adult volunteers during low speed frontal impacts 

      Seacrist, Thomas; Arbogast, Kristy .B.; Maltese, Matthew R.; García España, J. Felipe; López Valdés, Francisco José; Kent, Richard W.; Tanji, Hiromasa; Higuchi, Kazuo; Balasubramanian, Sriram (03/01/2012)
      Previous research has quantified differences in head and spinal kinematics between children and adults restrained in an automotive-like configuration subjected to low speed dynamic loading. The forces and moments that the ...
