Whiplash Risk Estimation

Calculating the Delta v of a vehicle after a collision in order to assess the risk of injury for occupants

Especially collisions at low speed conditions (10-25 km/h) may cause injury for occupants such as the Cervical Spine Syndrome. By defining the Delta v (collision-related change of speed) of a vehicle an estimated risk of injury for occupants is possible.

Using the given data simulation software allows identifying the Delta v of the vehicle.

The result of this analysis conduces a medical and biomechanical estimation of the risk of injury for occupants.
