ON THE KINEMATICS OF THE HEAD USING LINEAR ACCELERATION MEASUREMENTS

The paper deals with an application of the nine accelerometer scheme proposed by Padgaonkar et al. (9175) to the analysis of the head kinematics including the head angular acceleration and velocity using linear acceleration measurements. The computed results have been compared with the film analysis and with the actual measured quantities in the case of the dummy experiments. The study reveals an excellent agreement among these results and indicates the feasibility of the application of the method to biomechanical studies. /HSRI/
