Predicting Brain Injuries via High-Fidelity
Human Head Simulations
High-fidelity human head simulations allow extensive parameterization of impact scenarios and protection strategies.
Simulation allows researchers to see into the virtual brain as the impact occurs.
Merging cellular injury thresholds with measured head motion, simulations have the potential to predict traumatic brain injury.
Simulating the response of the brain to a traumatic impact gives insight to how injurious loads are transmitted through the skull to the brain.
Simulations augment experimental data, predicting vulnerable regions and elucidating the mode of injury.
Biofidelic Simulations of helmeted heads can predict protective capability which focuses the efforts of helmet innovators.
