TOWARD A COMPREHENSIVE BIOMECHANICAL INJURY COST MODEL

The proposed biomechanical injury cost model utilizes surrogate-based injury assessment functions to predict the probability of occurrence and the probable cost of specific injuries to the head, thorax, abdomen, and lower extremities. The resulting probability cost is a function of the number, location, and severity of injuries. As more precise injury assessment functions and more accurate cost estimates become available, the model will become an effective tool for comparing and classifying different injury patterns.
