Biomechanics of Traumatic Brain Injury Webinar Series

An analysis performed by a biomechanical engineer is often helpful toward evaluating causation in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) cases. In this 30-minute webinar, Dr. Carolyne Albert will examine TBIs from an engineering perspective. Starting with a diagnosis documented in the medical record, Dr. Albert will explain the fundamentals of how biomechanical engineers apply physics, engineering, and the scientific method to determine if an incident generated the loading necessary to have caused the diagnosed brain injuries.
